One True Pairing – AKA former Wild Beasts songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Tom Fleming – has released the new single, “Be Strong”.

Following previous tracks “Frozen Food Centre” and “Mid-Life Crisis”, “Be Strong” marks the third John ‘Spud’ Murphy (Lankum, black midi, caroline) produced single to be released by Fleming.

“You search the streets, trying every door. All locked,” says Fleming. “The cold night stretches out ahead, utterly indifferent to you. Everything has fallen silent and everyone has gone. To gather up all the things that led here would take forever, but you have to do it. This song is for Jenny, who showed me that true strength is in tenderness and brute force is worthless. It’s a gentler song for sure but it’s heartfelt and means a lot to me. A love song. Things can change.”

"Be Strong" is out now via Domino.
