Til We Can Run is for Mum and for the hope and dreams of everyone.
The song was inspired by the way the world changed after Covid-19.
During 2020, our Mum suffered a stroke. Because we couldn't visit Mum with Covid hanging over us all, we spoke on the phone in our lockdown.
We talked of how different life had become and we lived in hope that we would all come out the other side with an even greater appreciation of all the things we had previously taken for granted.
Mum talked of having a huge party at the end of the Covid lockdown with the prospect of meeting up with her loved ones. We all wanted to make that happen.
It wasn't meant to be as Mum sadly passed away weeks afterwards.
At Mum's funeral we sang ‘Abide With Me’ which was one of her favourite hymns.
Mum had a real passion for music - it got her through her hard times and these factors had a huge influence on us both growing up, and throughout our lives.
On the evening of the funeral we sat around the fire reminiscing and drinking whilst listening to some of Mum's favourite classical pieces. We talked about Mum until the early hours and decided we wanted to create a song in memory of her.
We became Brothers Abide.
We wanted to produce a song for everyone everywhere that featured people all over the globe.
So we collaborated worldwide with musicians from Madagascar, Nigeria, Kenya, England, Romania, Germany and Wales.
Til We Can Run is the result - a global anthem celebrating our lives together as one again - a party for the world.
