Mercury Records group Parachute glides into the new year with a brand new single, “Something To Believe In,” from their upcoming second album, THE WAY IT WAS (due for April release), and a fresh round of U.S. tour dates with Plain White T’s and Miggs on the Wonders Of The Younger tour, opening January 27th at Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee, and wrapping up at the House Of Blues in Chicago on February 28th.
In addition to “Something To Believe In” – which was played during this year’s Rose Bowl football classic and has become an ESPN staple – THE WAY IT WAS is also expected to include a number of songs that Parachute has introduced at recent shows, among them “Break My Heart For Me,” “Halfway,” “Square One,” “The Way It Was,” “What I Know,” and “White Dress.” Another track, “Kiss Me Slowly,” was written with Grammy winners Lady Antebellum. THE WAY IT WAS was produced by John Fields, whose credits include Switchfoot, the Goo Goo Dolls, P!nk, and Paper Tongues.
THE WAY IT WAS follows up Parachute’s Losing Sleep, which scored a #1 iTunes album debut when it was released in May 2009. The album featured the Top 15 Hot AC hit “She Is Love.” Parachute – Will Anderson (guitars, piano, lead vocals), Kit French (saxophone, key boards, vocals), Alex Hargrave (bass), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), and Nate McFarland (lead guitar, vocals) – enjoyed a breakout year starting with their live performance of “She Is Love” at the annual New Year’s Eve celebration on Times Square in New York City.
