On their new single, William The Conqueror delve deep into the darkest recesses, gathering clues to unravel a mystery of misplaced worship, adolescence, addiction and the road to recovery. ‘Bleeding on the Soundtrack’ is the first track to appear from their forthcoming album of the same name, recorded at Real World and produced by Ethan Johns, he who’s produced Ryan Adams and the Jayhawks. Laid down in one blistering take, the track builds from controlled intensity to an explosive climax as Naomi Holmes’ looping bass and Harry Harding’s powerhouse drums drive Ruarri Joseph’s vocals to deliver the soulful confessions of the song’s dramatic narrative.
