Glasgow based duo RAINTOWN are set to release their new single ‘RUN WITH THE NIGHT’ – their first music working with Producer, John McLaughlin who has written and produced 7 UK No.1’s and more than 25 Top Ten hits worldwide. It is an upbeat track, that will have you singing the chorus for days.
RUN WITH THE NIGHT was written by Paul and Claire Bain (RAINTOWN) and will be released on Friday 6th April in advance of a six date tour of the UK – with a further 3 dates in June (information below.) Paul said, “Myself and Claire got talking about taking chances one night and whether in uncertain times are people more or less inclined to take a leap of faith, see dreams through to fruition or is everything disposable. Somewhere in there the phrase, you have to just run with the night was used and an idea was born.”.
16 awards in 5 years and two critically acclaimed albums, Raintown deliver a startling take on UK contemporary country that is both firmly-rooted and unashamedly forward-thinking. Their intensely charismatic live performances are imbued with a spirit and energy that that continues to cement their place as one of the UK’s leading new breed of country acts.
RUN WITH THE NIGHT shows an impressive development for this songwriting couple who have fused their passion for country music with their eclectic musical influences and continue the tradition of exciting new music to emerge from Glasgow. Claire explained, “We are parents now – a 17month old baby girl called Alba-Rose – and it definitely changes your perspective of the world and certainly gives you new material as songwriters.”
Paul further commented, “Through a large dose of serendipity we had a chance to sit down and have a coffee with John (McLaughlin.) His passion for song writing and production in unabated and infectious – we are grateful for the opportunity to work with him.”
This sensational new single will continue to elevate this impressive duo to new heights and further underline their place in the burgeoning UK Country scene. Raintown would like to thank ‘Mutch Better Foods Ltd’ who have sponsored this single.
