David Ford I'm Alright Now single + watch video

David Ford - I'm Alright Now

"I'm Alright Now", the new single from David Ford, sees the songwriter at his confessional best.

Whether he is ruminating on love, politics, life or departures, David Ford invests each word with a frank, often-brutal honesty. On "I'm Alright Now" he celebrates in the face of his own folly, the loved one who stuck it out. The single is set for release on 14th January, 2008 on Independiente Records.

Amid the lyrics of 'sublime retribution' and direction lost, Ford pens a lyric of unbridled optimism, "A lot of stories will end happy ever after, but I swear nothing quite like you and me."

As a realisation of great song writing talent, David Ford's sophomore album 'Songs For The Road' has been a tour de force. Released in October it sparked the same critical acclaim as Ford's visceral, homespun debut 'I Sincerely Apologise For The Trouble I Have Caused', but with a noted confidence in tone, expansion and ambition of sound, and ceaseless commitment to melody.

Building on a fan base drawn to Fords uniquely caustic songwriting, 'Songs For The Road' had already reached the Number One spot on the iTunes Folk Chart, and Number Four in the 7Digital album chart with all of the album's 9 tracks in their Top Ten download, before going on general release.
