The 39-year-old singer, who previously supported Oasis and Travis, has shared a new track called “Oval” and will release a new album this summer.
Stephen revealed that his new song is inspired by personal experiences and the “timeliness” of marriage.
He said of the track, “I think it’s a song about marriage, timeliness, responsibility for it, and gambling. When my friend was pregnant with our first son, we moved to an apartment near the Oval in London.

“When our marriage fell apart a few years ago, it was this simple song that was the only thing I had to put in the ground and keep going to make new music.”
Stephen continued, “I wrote the song about my wife looking out the window in that oval apartment and seeing her new life as a mother, our new life as parents, and I was trying to show the beauty in some way that We Being gifted at parenting is often haunted by the loss of something. “
The “Run” singer’s most recent work was the acclaimed 2007 album “Man on the Roof,” and he says he wasn’t sure whether to return.
He said, “For 13 years I hadn’t gone to a professional recording studio to stand still and do one recording from start to finish in one delivery – all at once. Only the horror of the reels starts to turn and the red light comes on. “
