Singer-songwriter Kerri Watt has released ‘Chasing Aeroplanes’, the new single and video from her upcoming 2020 album. Premiered by Bob Harris on his Radio 2 Country Show, the single was recorded in Austin, Texas, with Grammy-nominated producer Machine (Lamb Of God, Clutch, Fall Out Boy) and a live band, in an unexpected but evidently successful musical marriage. Impact date has been set as December 20th 2019.
Not every day does the opportunity arise for an artist to work with someone who sits so dramatically on the opposite end of the musical scale, but whose artistry is still compatible. So when Kerri Watt, who had garnered the affection of the country and Americana community with her live shows and debut single, was told that metal and rock producer Machine was interested in working with her, she jumped at the opportunity.
“When I first heard that Machine might be interested in doing the record, I was pretty excited to be honest. I loved the idea of joining forces with someone from a totally different genre to bring something unique to the sound. Machine and I spoke at length about the sound of the album, influences, bands/playlists/moods we liked and found we had a lot in common.”
