Runrig - (featuring Julie Fowlis) - Somewhere
Being the final track on the band’s final studio album The Story 2016, the song naturally took on the mantle of ’swansong’. This version is a re-recording with Bruce Guthro on vocals, duetting with Gaelic singer, Julie Fowlis. It was used as the promo single to accompany The Final Mile and Last Dance series of Farewell Concerts, June – August 2018. Whereas the original version from The Story had an atmospheric production that alluded to the ill-fated Columbia Space Mission of 2003 and the death of astronaut Laurel Clark, (Laurel had used the Runrig song Running To The Light as her daily wake-up call from Mission Control in Houston and her Runrig CD was subsequently found virtually intact amongst the wreckage in a field in Texas) this version is closer to the way the song was originally conceived: as a song of love eternal. The Story album reached No.26 in the UK charts, No.6 in Germany and No.2 in Denmark.
The song first appeared on Runrig’s new compilation album, The Ones That Got Away released in June 2018 and available from:
