As a recently signed artist, Scott will be releasing his third single on the independent label, Aardvark Records. ‘Living In The Dark’ will be released on Friday 9th November 2018 on digital music retail and streaming sites. It follows his two previous singles, ‘Down To Earth’ and ‘Looking Out To Sea’, both of which were released summer 2018 via Aardvark Records.

‘Living In The Dark’ follows the story of someone who has become a recluse. A person who was once a part of your life. He is “a talented man”, who’s life has “gone astray” and now “hides away”, as heard in the lyrics. Its a song about lost friendships and also how someones life can turn for the worst at any moment and leave them ‘Living In The Dark’. The song was recorded at Red Sand Studios, Chorlton, Manchester and produced by Mathieu Garcia.
