"Waiting for a Brighter Day" By Leif Erikson is Northern Transmissions Song of the Day.

Leif Erikson have returned with their first new music since 2019, with their “Waiting for a Brighter Day”. Produced and recorded by lead singer and songwriter Sam Johnston, the track took on a new meaning during the lockdown: “I think we were all waiting for a brighter day and perhaps we still are considering all the problems we face as human beings. Personally this song has become a bit of a motto for me. Everyone can relate to feeling like the world is against them but in those moments it is important to remember that better times are round the corner. I will always be able to sing this song with truth and feeling.”

Name for the Icelandic explorer believed by many to have been the first Westerner to reach the shores of America, the UK quintet will play a run of dates around the release, starting November 21, in Manchester.
