Foy Vance’s new single ‘Noam Chomsky Is A Soft Revolution’ is available to stream and download now and impacts on November 18. The follow-up to his BBC Radio 2 Playlisted singles ‘Coco’ and ‘Upbeat Feelgood’, ‘Noam Chomsky Is A Soft Revolution’ is a fired-up rock’n’blues celebration of musical, philosophical, literary and polemical insurrectionists. All three singles are taken from Northern Irishman Vance’s acclaimed new album The Wild Swan, out now on Ed Sheeran’s label Gingerbread Man Records, which has been nominated for the Northern Ireland Music Prize 2016. This is the second time Vance has been nominated for the award, which he won with his last album ‘Joy Of Nothing’ in 2013.
Vance supported Elton John – the Executive Producer of ‘The Wild Swan’ – on his ‘Wild Crazy Tour’ throughout the UK in June and will rejoin Elton as support at Belfast’s SSE Arena on December 2.
