49TH & MAIN RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘BELIEVE IN LOVE’
October 25, 2022
49th & Main have returned with massive new single ‘Believe In Love’.
‘Believe In Love’ is the first release from the rising Irish duo in the wake of their debut EP ‘Must Be Nice’, which was released in September via Counter Records (an imprint of Ninja Tune).
Hailing from Kilkenny, the duo have been making unbelievable waves internationally – selling out their debut headline shows 6 months in advance and amassing over 40 million streams, appearing as Spotify’s Radar cover stars earlier this year and playing huge sets at Glastonbury, Electric Picnic and other festivals this summer.
This month also saw the pair announce their debut UK headline tour, which saw them sell out the London date in a matter of minutes.
A bonafide banger, ‘Believe In Love’ is 49th & Main stepping up to the big leagues – taking their sound to giddy new heights as uplifting samples collide with bombastic instrumentation, horns, urgent vocals and arguably the biggest chorus of the year.
Speaking about ‘Believe In Love’, 49th & Main said:
Paddy: “We wrote ‘Believe In Love’ off the back of our latest EP ‘Must Be Nice’, we wanted to make something fun with the intention of bringing it to our end of year live headline shows. The aim will be to unite and uplift the crowd, and for fans new and old to celebrate the incredible whirlwind of a year we’ve had all together.”
Ben: “As soon as I heard the sample I knew I had to build a track around it. Look, it took a good while and the song itself has been through more iterations than a horse has hair but it got there in the end and it turned out pretty great if we do say so ourselves!’
