Listen :: Bear's Den share new track 'Berlin' ahead of Christmas show

Words: Ellie Ward

Bear’s Den have released a surprise new song today (December 9) in advance of their Christmas charity show next week.

The reflective song, ‘Berlin', was written during sessions for the band’s 'Red Earth & Pouring Rain' album and was recorded last month when the band had a short break in a hectic year of touring.

“We're so excited to be sharing 'Berlin' with the world," says 
Andrew Davie. "It's a song we started writing a year ago and finished writing over the last few days of our last tour. Feels like a small way for us to say thank you to all the people who've supported us all over the world over the last year and made it such an incredible year for us as a band.”

Bear’s Den return to London next week to play at St John’s, Bethnal Green on December 15. All proceeds from the night will go to Support Act, an initiative that supports two refugee charities, Refugee Action and Road To Freedom.

The show, which sold out within 24 hkrs, will see the band perform their own songs and specially arranged Christmas numbers, joined by an orchestra plus other featured performers. Special guests announced so far include: Lucy Rose, Justin Young and Freddie Cowan from The Vaccines, Marcus Foster from Seramic, Matthew & The Atlas and just announced Benjamin Francis Leftwich.

Bear's Den embark on a European headline tour next spring, culminating with a show at London's Hammersmith Eventim Apollo April 5.
