Multi-award-winning Scottish band Skerryvore release a brand new, high energy single, ‘You & I,’ at 7pm this evening, Friday, 27 November. Composed by lead singer Alec Dalglish, the new track has all the hallmarks of a pop anthem, showcasing Skerryvore’s signature dynamic brand of contemporary Scottish music at its best.
The song sees the band’s sound take another step forward, successfully marrying their traditional west coast roots with pop rock influences in a rousing effort about togetherness and long-lasting/ important partnerships.
Alec said: “This single has the classic Skerryvore sound to it but as always we have tried to push ourselves forward in certain ways. I always wanted to write something with an ethereal ‘choir’ section and it worked perfectly for ‘You & I.’ The song was always supposed to be a big, festival headline, end-of-the-night jump around and hopefully people can at least do that in their living room until we can play for them live!”
The single comes off the back of a collaboration with much-loved Scottish DJ, George Bowie, who fused his infamous brand of dance music with Skerryvore’s ‘Take My Hand.’ The GBX vs Skerryvore ‘Take My Hand (Remixes)’ has gone down a treat with dance, pop and folk music fans alike across Scotland. The new single was recorded over three days in August at Scott Wood’s Oak Ridge Studio in Glasgow, with the eight-strong group unable to come together to play the track all at once. It was mastered by Robin Schmidt of 24-96 Mastering who has worked with the likes of Lewis Capaldi, Sam Fender and The 1975.
Skerryvore will host a Watch Party on their YouTube Channel @SkerryvoreTV at 7pm on Friday, 27 November 2020 to premiere the video for ‘You & I.’ The track will also be available to download and stream from 7pm.
