Bob Vylan have unveiled their first new single since last year’s standalone track The Delicate Nature.

Featuring frontman Bobby’s daughter, nieces and nephews on backing vocals, the duo’s inspirational new tune – which goes by the name Dream Big – reflects the importance of having “childlike dreams”, even as an adult.

“As I see them growing and finding things they’re passionate about, it reminds me how important it is to continue having those childlike dreams of what we can accomplish in our lives,” the frontman explains of getting his family on the track.

“Growing up, dreaming of making some kind of positive change in the world or doing something you love wasn’t presented as a realistic option. Working class people are often too focused on getting by to have the luxury of ‘dreaming big’, fortunately, I was delusional. And we want to encourage that ‘delusional’ belief in oneself to accomplish whatever they want to in this world.”

He adds: “We want to inspire people to achieve what they truly wish to achieve. We come from places and lifestyles that don’t encourage that. At a very young age, my path was thought to be set out for me. The school-to-prison pipeline that people talk about was something I was travelling through. I'm just fortunate that I was able to find another exit before I reached the other side of that pipeline. Other people I grew up with weren’t so lucky.”
