Follow the Rainbows

In April 2020, Hanley and the Baird had a No 10 single in the iTunes chart. 

Follow the Rainbows was written by the girls and inspired by the Sing in the City members during the COVID19 quarantine.

It got Number 10 with no mainstream radio airplay but on fanbase sales alone.  After 5 days they were still in the chart but still getting no air play with exception to the fabulous community and independent radio stations who were playing it.

The download money will be donated to SAMH (Scottish Association Mental Health. As the band felt that the aftermath of Corona Virus will be felt for a long time in many ways.  The single can be bought on iTunesGoogle PlayAmazon Music and streamed on Spotify.
