There’s a real Run on Snow Patrol classic

By Maureen Coleman

Snow Patrol’s 2003 hit Run has scored a double whammy in this week’s Irish charts.

Leona Lewis’ cover version of the song, which was released digitally in Ireland last week, has topped the charts, while the original single has re-entered at number 34.

And in the UK charts, Snow Patrol’s Run has also re-appeared at number 28. The band are currently in both sets of charts with the single Take Back The City.

Snow Patrol’s original version of Run – taken from their third album Final Straw – made its way back into the charts following Leona Lewis’ performance of the song on the X Factor a fortnight ago.

The song has been included on a deluxe version of her chart-topping album Spirit but is not being released as a single.

However it was released digitally in Ireland on November 17 and it is understood it will also be released digitally in the UK next Monday.

Speaking about her version of Run, Snow Patrol bassist Nathan Connolly revealed: “I still haven’t heard it.

“Nothing against her, but I don’t know if I’m going to endorse it either.”

Meanwhile Snow Patrol, who play four shows at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast next year, will release their new single Crack The Shutters in Ireland on December 12.
