Discovered are proud to premier the brand new single and video from indie folk singer-songwriter S.T. Manville, ‘Footsteps’.
Growing up playing in punk bands, Manville, tired of the non-stop DIY touring and eventually went on to write both platinum and gold selling records, working with artists such as Mø, Biffy Clyro, Digital Farm Animals, Little Mix and Becky Hill. Records he has worked on have been streamed over 50 Million times. However, disenchanted with the pop world, towards the end of 2018 Manville picked up a guitar and started writing for himself.
Now, after clocking up over 300k streams in less than 2 months of his debut covers album ‘Somebody Else’s Songs’ and original single ‘Make Believe’, Manville continues to add to his catalogue with the release of new single ‘Footsteps’.

Speaking about the song itself, S.T. had this to say:
“A few months ago I visited my good friend James at his sister Emma’s new house. They had recently bought this incredible house and had only done work to about half of it, the rest being stuck in this beautiful state of ‘faded grandeur’ as they called it. The week before the visit I had written ‘Footsteps’ about missing someone for both the right and wrong reasons, about the anxiety of being separated from someone you care about and all the crazy things your mind will have you believe if you let it. The song’s foundation is in a particular evening, when I was home alone waiting for my wife to come back from somewhere. When I saw Emma’s house I instantly knew that the portions that hadn’t been renovated were the perfect visual representation of the song, as if they were emotional soul mates. So I asked James if we could shoot a video there. Emma and family very kindly let us use the house and James, my other friend Robin and myself returned a few weeks later to shoot the video. I really hope you like it as much as we do.”
