    ‘Summer’ the new single from Lewis McLaughlin is a testament to the simple joys of being young, having few cares in the world, whatever the weather. It brings musical escapism - asking us to leave our worries in the house and enjoy a moment with others in the sun. It draws influence from traditional forms and filters them with a contemporary lens to blend alt folk and rock into something unique.
    A choir of Lewis’ rich musical network gels the track; “the song has always been very strongly focused on inclusion, community and togetherness. I hope that comes across in this version and the music video.”
    It was recorded in Glasgow where he currently lives. He is 20 years old and was inspired by the likes of John Martyn and Villagers to begin writing and recording his own songs.

lyrics

Summer and the weather is fine
Summer and the weather is fine
Any way the wind blows, that’s the way the river flows
Summer and the weather is fine

Problems of a worried man
Problems of a worried man
Resting on your shoulder, leave it till you’re older
Problems of a worried man

Summer and the weather is fine
Summer and the weather is fine
Any way the wind blows, that’s the way the river flows
Summer and the weather is fine

Wait until the sky turns blue
Wait until the sky turns blue
Sunrise it will cover you, sisters and your brothers too
Wait until the sky turns blue

Summer and the weather is fine
Summer and the weather is fine
Any way the wind blows, that’s the way the river flows
Summer and the weather is fine

Worries will all fade away
Worries will all fade away
If you find a lover, take her under cover
Worries will all fade away



All I’m waiting for is you
All I’m waiting for is you
Tell all of your friends to, wait until the sky’s blue
All I’m waiting for is you

Summer and the weather is fine
Summer and the weather is fine
Any way the wind blows, that’s the way the river flows
Summer and the weather is fine



Summer and the weather is fine
Summer and the weather is fine
Any way the wind blows, that’s the way the river flows
Summer and the weather is fine
