Today Embrace release the first single from their forthcoming eighth studio album, How To Be A Person Like Other People, set for release on 26 August 2022 on the band’s own Mo’betta label through Townsend Music.
The single, The Terms Of My Surrender, is an epic, near seven-minute slice of classic Embrace, with lilting guitars and a haunting melody to the fore. Talking about the new single, Danny McNamara said, “When we finished Terms Of My Surrender, it was a clear band favourite. The fact it's nearly seven minutes long and has one of the best guitar parts Rik’s ever written makes it a perfect way to kick all this off again.”

Talking about the new album, Danny said, “It's the most joyous, most uplifting, most upbeat, most soulful thing we've ever done. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
