Ralph's previously blogged Wullae Wright and it's proved to be the most well read of any over the last couple of years. Needless to say it was good news when Wullae Wright got in touch to say he was releasing 'Superhero' as a single. The story of the song is no less poignant than Wullae Wright's plaintive vocal which, overlaid on subtle acoustic guitar with an orchestral background is just as heart wrenching as the single's message. Ralph previously said of Wullae that he has an 'old rock soul' and with this track once again attests to that.
Taken from the album 'The Orange Line' the track 'Superhero' was written by Wullae Wright about the struggle with cancer and after losing Grandparents to the disease it is very much a tribute to them both. It's also a song of hope as another of his Grandparents recently recovered from cancer so Wullae is donating 100% of the profits from the single to the Beatson Cancer Charity in Scotland who helped his Grandparent successfully battle and defeat the disease.
The single will be released through the Macaroni Penguin Music record label available to buy through their Bandcamp site. Included with the download will be a variety of other material, including collaborations with a other musicians including Ambrose Chappel and Indigo Outlaw. Lee Feraday assisted with the singles artwork which draws on The Orange Line works by Wullae and will feature on the singles B Side. It's a bargain at only £2.50 and with all proceeds going to the cancer charity it's money well spent.
