After opening C2C Festival at the O2 Arena on March 10th, Ward Thomas release their stunning new EP ‘A Shorter Story’ – a series of 5 cover versions
cherry picked by Catherine and Lizzy. Once again the release showcases their stunning vocal harmonies, as well as seeing them put their own unique stamp on some of their favourite songs.

Catherine and Lizzy said ’We’ve been playing around with cover versions as part of our acoustic Snug Sessions videos for a few years now and mostly they have gone down really well. We recorded the EP over two days and have tried to bring something new and different to each song whilst at the same time respecting the original versions. Hopefully people like them!’

A Shorter Story is available now on Spotify and iTunes.

Ward Thomas have already sold an incredible 17,000 tickets for their spring tour with a number of dates already sold out, while their acclaimed ‘Cartwheels’ album has sold over 75,000 copies since entering the UK charts at Number 1 last September.

This morning, the girls were added to the bill for Tom Petty at Hyde Park on July 9th,with major festival appearances following that at Latitude, Isle of Wight, Cornbury and Harvest amongst others. In August they will also support one of their all time heroines Miranda Lambert.
