On Monday I drove to Leeds to interrupt a Commoners Choir rehearsal, stick a mic in front of them, and record the closing track of my forthcoming ‘Headscarves & Hurricanes’ album, ‘Haul Away, Boys’, with 50 incredible voices.
Cannot thank Boff Whalley and the gang enough for arranging their vocal parts and being ready just to stand up and record, it made the night so easy and we were done in no time. A quick mix on Tuesday, a brief stint in front of the mic myself, and the deed was done.
You can hear the finished song here:
Commoners Choir will be playing May Day Festival Of Solidarity next year, and who knows, maybe we’ll sing it live together……
