Introducing to popledge…Alistair Griffin – the official soundtrack for Formula 1 2012
Introducing to popledge…Alistair Griffin.
Alistair Griffin is perhaps a name you haven’t heard of yet, but you will have heard his song ‘Just Drive’ if you live in the UK and are into Formula 1 racing. The song has been chosen as the title music for the F1 2012 race. It is released in the UK on the 16th of July.
Please do not dismiss the song as a ‘sports song’ though, the lyrics aren’t really about driving in a literal sense, more in terms of driving a relationship forward.
Alistair Griffin said of the track “’Just Drive’ represents a brand new start for me” says the York based singer-songwriter. “It’s about the freedom of the road, pushing yourself to the limit and, personally, it was a revelation of what I could do.”
Prior to its release in Britain on July 16th Alistair will be performing ‘Just Drive’ at the British Grand Prix on July 7th and 8th.
Alistair is also performing at Hard Rock Calling on July 14th and Guilfest on July 15th.
‘Albion Sky’ is the upcoming album, UK release date is July 2nd 2012.
p.s. if you recognise the name/face it is probably because he finished in second place on the 2003 series of Fame Academy..
