Hot on the heels from selling out his performance at London’s Old Blue Last, Nottingham / London-based multi-instrumentalist Re Teu has announced his debut EP, The Author, which is set for release on October 20th. Partnering the announcement, Re Teu has also shared the EP’s lead single, its title track. 

Of the single, Re Teu states:

This song encapsulates the feeling of release and surrender, embodying complete acceptance. We’ve become unfamiliar entities, characters within a tale, where you and I hold the quill as co-authors of our narrative.

Hailing from the vibrant music scenes of London and Nottingham, Re Teu seamlessly fuses delicate and soul-stirring folk melodies with euphoric rock to create music that is both one-of-a-kind yet nostalgic from its first notes. 

The announcement follows on from his debut single, Glas (translating to ‘grey’ in both Scottish and Cornish), meaning all of the colours of water, from blue to green and pale grey. 

Throughout the track, Re Teu creates a sonic backdrop that is both one-of-a-kind and warmingly nostalgic from its first note. Of the track, he states:

the song is a poignant composition that delves into themes of denial, unacceptance, and the depths of internal pain. Serving as an introductory chapter to a captivating anthology of narratives centred around growth and profound learning, this song resonates with the raw emotions that accompany personal transformation.

Already having drawn sold-out crowds at prestigious venues such as Rescue Rooms and Rough Trade in Nottingham, alongside capturing the hearts of listeners at London’s The Waiting Room, Re Teu has announced a headline show at the capital’s Old Blue Last – set to take place on July 25th.
