"Join with Us" is the fourth and final single taken from The Feeling's second album of the same name and was released on 15 September 2008. It was revealed on Capital Radio that the band's 24-hour challenge on 9 July was to film the video in one day. Part of the video features the band performing at a fairground.

The song was originally written at the time when the band were performing in the Alps, and was included on a very rare demo disc along with demo versions of other Twelve Stops And Home tracks. It was also added to the set list for the Twelve Stops and Home tour, and subsequently features on the live double CDs that contain audio versions of the tour in different venues, such as Shepherd's Bush Empire and Cambridge Corn Exchange.

"Join with Us" was featured on a Toyota Auris advertisement.

The Feeling performed "Join with Us" at the London 2012 Party shown on BBC One as well as a cover of David Bowie's "Heroes".

Charts[edit]

In February 2008, "Join with Us" entered the UK Singles Chart at #196 on downloads alone. When the single was officially released on 15 September 2008 only in the United Kingdom, despite receiving many positive reviews and praise from critics and fans and despite the song's efforts for promotion through the new Toyota Auris advert, it received hardly any radio airplay and became the band's first single to fail to dent the UK Top 75, peaking at a disappointing #87.[1] It was thought by many that "Join with Us" should have been the lead single taken from the album of the same name or at least released earlier than it was; had this been the case, the single may have peaked much higher. As well as this, there was a problem concerning the number of copies produced which meant that it was difficult to get hold of, therefore having a further negative impact on the chart position. However, on a more positive note, the release of the single did boost the album of the same name back in the UK Top 40 in the UK Albums Chart.
