Who could forget 2006 when The Feeling burst onto the scene with ‘Twelve Stops And Home’. The debut album spawned hit after hit singles such as, ‘Sewn’, ‘Fill My Little World’ and ‘Love It When You Call’. This success continued into 2008 landing the band a number one album with ‘Join With Us’.

Now the guys are back with new single ‘Set My World On Fire’, do they have another hit on their hands?

Well, it’s been over a year since I first heard the song, acoustically in a bar in South London and then I instantly fell in love with it. It’s upbeat, catchy and just makes you wanna dance – everything a Feeling song should be! As I write this I have the song blaring out, with the sun shining in through the window – I am in Heaven.

Having known the song for over a year it has been great for me to watch it evolve and develop over that time, and hearing the final mix just brings back so many memories of hearing it live. It also means that I can assure you it stands the test of time, it still sounds just as fresh as the first time I heard it, and I can tell it’ll stay firmly stuck in my head for years to come!

And as always with The Feeling there are some beautiful, heartfelt lyrics in there like ‘I can feel you in my heart, every time we part’ which is reinforced with a heartbeat-style drumbeat running through the song. But the line that really sums the song up for me is this: ‘It’s a little bit more than I ever hoped for!’.

‘Set My World On Fire’ is just perfect for a sunny day. It has the ability to put a smile on your face whenever you hear it, which for me is what perfect pop music is all about.


‘Set My World On Fire’ is released on 2nd May, followed by The Feeling’s third album ‘Together We Were Made’ on 20th June.
