Fan writes The Christians’ new single, Tanera Days

The new single from The Christians, Tanera Days, was written by a fan of the band.

Inspiration struck Andrew Langridge after a building contract for his company took him to the remote Scottish island of Tanera Mor.

The Christians’ frontman, Garry Christian, said: “This is certainly a first for us, our fans have been with us every step of the way, but they don’t normally get direct input to the music! The song was so good, and the underlying message about making sure that we all find our own sanctuary in this fast-moving world feels very important and timely. We’re all delighted with how it came out.”

Calming Quality

“My client, the owner of the island, bought it to gift to a charity that devotes its time to rehabilitating armed forces members suffering from PTSD, and other mental illness struggles,” explains Andrew.  “It really struck me the selflessness of the anonymous island owner who was doing so much to help people recover in a nurturing environment … I think the song, coupled with Garry’s immaculate vocals, capture the spiritual calming quality of the island perfectly.

“I chatted to Garry Christian and singer / producer / guitarist Joey Ankrah about my song and they wanted to record and produce it, I definitely wasn’t going to say no to that”.

The band will be on tour in the UK and Europe throughout the rest of the year.
