Musician releases ode to well-known Wirral road

Musician Tim Blackburn AKA Mistrust has just released a new song inspired by a well-known Wirral road. 

“New Chester Road Revisited” takes the listener on a journey down the road of the same name, from Birkenhead to Chester via Port Sunlight.  It’s both an ode to this well-known route, and a metaphor about looking back on life and how things are no longer the same, but never really change.

Mistrust said, “After playing the song live a few times during 2023, I felt that it didn’t quite fit in with the overall synth-pop sound of the rest of the tracks on “Sunlight. 

“After making it a bit more upbeat and catchy, I played ‘New Chester Road Revisited’ for the first time at the Future Showcase at Future Yard in Birkenhead, in November 2023.” 

‘New Chester Road Revisited’ is available to download now at  and will be out on Spotify and all major streaming platforms on 24 May 2024. 

The song will also be included on the forthcoming album “Sunlight Revisited”, which includes reworked versions of songs on the Artist’s debut album “Sunlight”.

“New Chester Road Revisited” is an updated “revisited” version of the one that appeared on the artist’s album “Sunlight” which was released in 2023.
