Parlophone Records have today announced the release of Falling from Graham Coxon, a new recording available on digital download and limited edition 7” vinyl – in support of the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).
Falling was written by a talented unknown songwriter and dedicated father Luke Daniel, who after a long fight with chronic pain, tragically ended his own life last year. Graham’s version of the track features on a double A side, which includes Luke’s original home recording. Part of the proceeds of Falling will go to the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), an award-winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK.
In releasing these tracks, Graham aims to inspire hope and courage in support of all those directly affected by this epidemic and to bring together friends, families and loved ones from all around the country.

Graham also wishes to raise awareness for CALM’s ground-breaking work as they lead the fight to remove barriers surrounding male vulnerability and continue to find new ways to help support men in crisis.
“Three in every four UK suicides are male and, together with Graham, we hope to raise awareness that support is available for anyone who needs it.” – Simon Gunning, CEO of CALM
Falling will be available on digital download and streaming services and vinyl pre-order from the 1st December, and the 7” vinyl is released on 15th December 2017.
