Since releasing her third album River in October, followed by a sold-out headline tour, acclaimed singer-songwriter Megan Henwood has now released a remix of the album’s lead track Join The Dots, out now via Dharma Records. It is available to stream on Spotify and buy on iTunes now.
Remixed by Ash Howes (Bastille, The Corrs, Ellie Goulding), it’s an instantly catchy slice of sparkling folk-pop. The track builds in intensity as throbbing drum loops pulsate alongside Henwood’s rich, soulful vocals. Of the track, Megan explains “Join The Dots is about how retrospectively we can recall the same story but interpret it completely differently – sometimes in an unrealistically positive light, as if to save ourselves from the honest truth.” The single has a sophisticated musicality and emotion-strewn power, sounding akin to the likes of Daughter or Lucy Rose.
In 2009, Megan won the BBC Young Folk Award, aged 20, alongside her brother Joe. Since then, she has gone on to become a formidable British talent. Megan has received praise in numerous well-regarded publications including The Guardian, Uncut and Folk Radio as well as support from the likes of BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe, Simon Mayo, Terry Wogan and Janice Long to name but a few. Megan is also a regular on the UK live circuit, having played numerous festivals including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival and Secret Garden Party amongst others.
