Steeleye Span in Somewhere Along The Road promo

Steeleye Span have released a video for their track Somewhere Along The Road.

Written by bassist Rick Kemp in the early 1980s, the song has never before been recorded by the band until now, with it appearing on current compilation The Essential Steeleye Span – Catch Up.

Kemp says: “A song of the natural desire and search for sanctuary and a kindred spirit, Somewhere Along The Road seems to reflect our human needs in these unsettled times more than ever.”

Steeleye Span are on a UK tour in support of the release.
