"It is an absolute pleasure to be working alongside Weekend Offender, the company ethos to constantly develop the brand and grow their already huge fan base is similar to the work ethic of my music career… I’m looking forward to what will hopefully be a long and very successful partnership". - Andrew Cushin

Since releasing his debut EP ‘You Don’t Belong’, Andrew has played shows with Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller, performed at Newcastle’s St. James’ Park during the Rugby Super League’s Magic Weekend, smashed songs and hit volleys as a guest on Soccer AM. The 22-year-old shares the new double A-side single ‘You’ll Be Free’ and ‘Dream For A Moment’, who closed his UK headline tour with a sold-out homecoming show at Newcastle’s 1600-capacity NX.

The two songs are linked by their themes. ‘You’ll Be Free’ talks of the scars from childhood that still haunt you years later. The only way to escape being “sick of going over the past until the sky turns black” is to vow to somehow confront those demons to allow your future to be unencumbered by incidents that you can’t change. ‘Dream For A Moment’ then finds Andrew looking at what he has achieved so far and hoping he can inspire others to overcome their challenges, singing, “I want to see your dream for your wish come true.”

Both tracks represent an evolution in Andrew’s style, both lyrically and musically. His previous fan favourites, ‘Where’s My Family Gone’ and ‘Waiting For The Rain’, have been heart-wrenching observations on personal experience, but the hope that shines through these new songs gives his music a far brighter resonance. They’re also richer in stature, combining his early intimacy with the power of his full-band live shows and sumptuous strings: a blend he shaped at The Libertines’ Albion Room Studios with long-term Manic Street Preachers producer Dave Eringa.

Andrew says, “To work with a producer with the reputation of Dave Eringa on these two tracks was an important step in my career. Both tracks were recorded at the Albion Rooms in Margate. 'You’ll Be Free' is a demo I’ve had for a few years now and Dave took it to the next level with a live string orchestra - the Vulcan String Quartet and his expertise in music production, but he has kept its rawness. 'Dream For A Moment' is an uplifting tune, again with the Vulcan Quartet it was taken to another level".
