Sprout reveals new track ‘Come Back (To What Can Be)’

Sprout, aka Meg Grooters, is a Burnley bred singer-songwriter making classic dulcet tones fit for the 21st century. Out today via sevenfoursevensix (Matilda Mann, Matt Maltese, Lizzie Reid), ‘Come Back (To What Can Be)’ is the final track to be shared from their self-titled debut EP out next week.

It follows on from previous singles ‘In The Night (It’s Only You I Think Of)’ and ‘Settled (Here In My Heart)’, which showcased Sprout’s love for costumes as well as their gorgeous vintage aesthetic, inspired by golden age cinema and jazz icons like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday.

‘Come Back (To What Can Be)’ deals with the weight of self-imposed expectations. Themes of apprehension in the lyrics contrast with Sprout’s glimmeringly delicate vocal delivery. Summery guitars paint a picturesque scene and an uplifting sense of resolve binds the track together beautifully by its conclusion.

Speaking of the track, Sprout said: “I don’t know why, but when we went into the first lockdown I put a lot of pressure on myself to create things. I had a lot on the back burner that I wanted to do and I thought one positive of lockdown could be that I would finally have time to do some of the things I wanted to do. Obviously though, the fear of impending doom and losing loved ones replaced this. I gave myself a tough time about not doing anything, then I made this song about it.”
