Kodaline release incredible live version of 'High Hopes'

Best known for their chart-topping, sing-along anthems, Irish rock band Kodaline have just released a stunning live version of their first single, ‘High Hopes’.

The track is the band's oldest song and was originally released in 2013. ‘High Hopes’ was a number one hit in their homeland, as well as a UK top 20 single. 

The live version of ‘High Hopes’ was recorded at the band’s sold-out show at the 30olympia in Dublin earlier this year. A particularly special venue for the quartet considering their Irish roots and the track really encapsulates the euphoric response from the crowd.

The band have their fans singing back every word, and lead singer Steve Garrigan takes a minute to praise the audience on their beautiful singing. Kodaline are undoubtedly one of the incredibly talented bands where they sound better live than on the original track, and it is a rather special talent to have. 

By the end of the song the crowd are pitch perfect and singing line for line, a moment where Kodaline are really at one with the audience. It is clear throughout this track that the band really share a special bond with the fans and Kodaline are very much adored by them.

The track is taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Our Roots Run Deep’ which features raw and unfiltered live versions of some of their most popular hits, as well as three covers. For these special and intimate performances, the band decided to employ mainly acoustic instruments, including David Doyle on Cello and David Prendergast on Keyboard and Vocals. 

The album will be out on October 14th via Fantasy records.
