With Christmas and the New Year a distant memory Gruff Rhys has started looking firmly ahead. The Welsh singer-songwriter has recorded a new Valentines Hymn that is set for a 14th February 2015 release.

The Hymn ‘Married 2 Me’ features ‘The Earth’ which has former ‘Super Furry Animals’ bandmate Dafydd Ieuan as one of its current members.

Rhys has also posted the lyrics to the Hymn…

I’m a priest of God                 What would Jesus do?         The ecclesiastical
I took my vows                       The goddam truth                Elastic pastor
The diocese won’t allow        The trinity’s for me               Save the world
Holy Communion                  Honeymoon in Gallilee        Bushes are burning

‘Married 2 Me’ follows hot on the heels of 2014’s ‘American Interior’ concept LP (the fourth solo album from the artist) which was based on the life of explorer John Evans.

‘Married 2 Me’ will be released digitally, via Strangetown Records.
