    UK RELEASE DATE: 30 August 2004


    Two years on from the eternally popular "The Good Will Out" LP and Embrace are back, with their new single "Gravity" set for release August 30.


    Taken from their new album "Out Of Nothing", released September 13, the single takes up where the band left off - soaring melodies and Danny McNamara's familiarly comforting vocals. Only this time there's a twist:


    Gravity would sit comfortably alongside any one of Embrace songs. And yet it was written by Coldplay singer and songwriter Chris Martin.


    The decision to record another artist's song might seem surprising were it not for a long standing friendship between Martin and McNamara dating back to when Coldplay supported Embrace at the Blackpool Empress Ballroom in 2000.


    Martin originally wrote the song for Coldplay but as it developed it became clear to him that the song might be better suited to Embrace. As he explains, "We've always loved Embrace and Danny is one of my best friends. When we wrote Gravity we thought it sounded far too much like them for us, but not too much like them for them, so I asked Danny if he wanted the song and that was that."


    The new album, produced by Youth, comes ahead of a major UK tour throughout October.
