The Young’uns Announce New Album following Three Dads Walking Single Release

Oct 11, 2022

Hudson Records have today proudly announced the new album Tiny Notes from the award winning folk band The Young’uns after releasing the first single Three Dads Walking yesterday.

The Young’uns live shows are renowned. With heart-on-the-sleeve storytelling, beautiful lyrics, warm harmonies and relentless repartee, Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle (the award-winning stand-up comedian) sing life-affirming folk songs for today.

Born from empathy, crafted with care, fired by hope, and shared with joy, The Young’uns‘ songs have been described as ‘a heartfelt secular hymnary for these troubled times and a rallying call for humanity’ (The Scotsman). They have led the band to three BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (including Best Album in 2018 for Strangers) and the creation of the acclaimed international theatre show The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff (based upon their 2019 album of the same name).

Nearly twenty years after accidentally stumbling into the alien world of their local folk club as drunken teenagers, (and gaining their cureless name in the process) these three thirtysomething friends from Stockton and Hartlepool have never lost the joy of that first night of singing together. Whether performing at Glastonbury Festival, writing a song about pigs with a group of school children, or presenting a programme on Radio 4, Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle are just the same.

The new album Tiny Notes will be released in March 2023 with the first single Three Dads Walking released yesterday. Three Dads Walking*, is about three amazing men, all have lost their daughters, Beth, Sophie and Emily to suicide. Andy, Tim and Mike want to continue to highlight the fact that suicide is the biggest killer of young people across the entire UK and are currently walking between the parliaments of the 4 nations to highlight the help PAPYRUS can offer. You may have seen the Young’uns singing their song to the Three Dads on BBC Breakfast news and ITV news.

 

The new album Tiny Notes takes its name from messages tied to the railings of a bridge in Sunderland, Tiny Notes is a collection of songs that find hope and humanity in grief and despair. From London Bridge to Lockerbie, from Derry to Aleppo, with warm harmony and beautifully crafted lyrics, these are folk songs for our times.
