Hope this finds you hale and hearty and enjoying the summer.
It’s an exciting week for me, I’ve a new release coming out on Friday to mark the ten year anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s death. She was the exact same age as my little sister and I still can’t believe she’s gone.
Here is a wee interview (including the songs) explaining a bit more about what I’ve been up to recently: https://m.mixcloud.com/…/derek-mccutcheon-interviews…/
Here is the link to iTunes (you can pre-save the song now by clicking the link) : https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/id1570666345?app=itunes
*** This will go live on FRIDAY. ***
It would really mean a lot to me if you would download the song ‘Caroline’ (and the B-side ‘Gotta Have You’)
Hazel sings backing vocals, my big pal Angus Lyon plays accordion and piano (and did all the production) and the lovely Anna Massie is on things with strings (mainly guitars).
Here’s how you can help:
1. DOWNLOAD THE SONG ON FRIDAY MORNING
2. SEND THE LINK TO A FEW PALS AND FAMILY MEMBERS
3. POST THE LINK TO YOUR FACEBOOK ON FRIDAY MORNING
4. OR IF IT’S EASIER SHARE THIS POST – If you don’t have iTunes or any other way to buy the song:
5. PUT IT ON REPEAT ON SPOTIFY!
If enough people download the song on Friday morning over their cornflakes, I have a chance of making it onto the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. That would be a bucket list for me!
It’s been ten years since this song’s inception; my friend David McSweeney wrote it for Amy just after she left us in 2011. We recorded a version at that point, but it just sat in my laptop doing nothing. I was back in the studio at Gran’s House working on some other stuff and we revisited ‘Caroline’ in 2017 and gave her a fresh lease of life! It’s only just been mastered by Chris Waite, ready for release. It’s taken me ten years to get this right so please be kind!
