Highland folk rock band, Torridon, is set to release a new single in time for Christmas.

The six-man ensemble from Ross-shire will release their latest single, "I Wanna Know," on December 15.

A firm-favourite in the region and around Scotland, the band has played Belladrum, The Gathering and the MacMoray Festivals.

"I Wanna Know" marks the commencement of the band's 20-year anniversary celebration.

This track is the first written by Michael Macmillan, the accordionist, keyboardist, and lead vocalist for the band. The song tells a love story, inspired by an interaction witnessed by the band at a gig in Tarbert.

Michael said of the single’s release: “To have it recorded and released is a great feeling, it feels like a very small part of history — something my two daughters can pull out at parties in years to come for a laugh! But I must give all the credit to the rest of the band. Everyone really dug deep and took a step out of their comfort zones to make this track what it is, and without their encouragement, openness, and support I would never have had the confidence to finish the words.”
