British singer songwriter David Gray will be in Australia from late March, with appearances at both the West Coast Blues & Roots Festival and Byron Bay’s Bluesfest already locked away. David is also locked away for headline shows in both Sydney (two at the State Theatre) and Melbourne (one at the Palais Theatre).
But his publicists have today confirmed that new music isn’t far away either; in the form of his new single ‘Snow In Vegas’.
Lifted from his recently-released album ‘Mutineers’, the track has been reworked and is now a duet, with renowned country starlet LeAnn Rimes contributing vocals.
“When I recorded ‘Snow In Vegas’ someone suggested that it would work really well as a duet,” David says of the new version. “The idea stuck in my mind, so when I met LeAnn backstage at a show in Phoenix and the song came up in conversation, I mentioned it to her. To my amazement she then called it up on her phone, pressed play and sang along in perfect harmony.”
The single version is due for release on Monday February 23.
