Katy J Pearson has returned with a brand new track for you all, Take Back The Radio, featuring fellow Heavenly artist Davey Newington (Boy Azooga) on backing vocals and drums and Laurie Nankivell from Squid playing the cornet.

The track is accompanied by a beautiful illustrated video directed by acclaimed artist and designer Raissa Pardini

Talking about the track, Katy said:

I enjoyed writing and recording this track so much, it really was a wonderful process.  When we were in the studio, Davey Newington (Boy Azooga) came in to lay down drums and add other textural elements, followed by my flatmate Laurie Nankivell (Squid) who added some cornet. Writing this paragraph from isolation also makes me reflect upon how some of the lyrics feel quite poignant to our universal situation – “and the land giving hope”. So many people are getting out into their gardens, or are walking to keep them sane during this strange time .. I also hear that radio stations have had a surge in listeners which tickles me into thinking this song is certainly appropriate!

Davey Newington added:

It was such a pleasure to go into the studio with Katy. I’ve been a fan of her beautiful songs and voice since she and her band played the Brudenell at last years Heavenly Weekender. The record that she, her brother Rob and the amazing Ali Chant have made is full of classic songs. I think it is going to blow people away and I feel lucky to have played a small part in its creation.
