‘He Took You In His Arms’ is the first track to be shared from the forthcoming his new album A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart. It was shot across a number of locations important to the album’s conception – his teenage bedroom frozen in time at his Mother’s house still complete with 90’s Liverpool FC paraphernalia, the beach at the end of her road, the famous ferry across Liverpool’s Mersey River and the streets, houses and pubs that colour Ryder-Jones’ life each day.
