Craig David has released a new single to promote train travel. And trust me, the existence of that sentence is as much a surprise to me as it is to you.

The track – called ‘Better Days (I Came By Train)’ – is part of a partnership between David and Trainline to push the rail ticketing app’s I Came By Train campaign. That initiative is trying to convince people to take journeys by train rather than car more frequently, in a bid to cut their carbon emissions. And, presumably, also book their tickets via Trainline.

“Writing this was a real passion project for me as I want to help raise awareness of the impact our choices can have on the environment”, says David. “Even swapping just one journey from car or plane to train can make a significant difference – it’s a no-brainer if you want to do your bit to help towards a better future! Even the smallest things can make a beautiful change”.

Written as a love song to the planet, David sings about the need to make “meaningful change” and that he’s “happy that I came by train”.

He’s set to play Wembley Arena this week, by the way, so look out for him on a train heading there on Friday. Here’s the video for the new song:
