Katie Melua – ”Remind Me To Forget”


Den georgisk-brittiska singer/songwritern Katie Melua släpper den 26 november ”Acoustic Album No. 8”, en samling akustiska omarbetningar av hennes hyllade ’Album No.8’ som kom 2020. Det är producerat av Zurab Melua, som berättar: ”The aim was to have a recording that sounded like a live intimate concert. So we simply played through the entire album a couple of times and Katie asked her long-time collaborator Mark Edwards to add some parts, and then we had Simon Goff play violin on two of the tracks – as Katie says, their musical instincts are just perfect. Some of the changes from the original songs are quite subtle, some like ’A Love Like That’ are more drastic. I’m pleased with how it came out.”

Den första singeln ”Remind Me To Forget”, där den tvåfaldigt Grammy-vinnande violinisten Simon Goff medverkar, är en vacker introduktion till låtarna där Katies röst, gitarren och fiolen ger spåret ett nytt liv som skiljer sig från originalet.

I’m such a fan of Simon Goff’s music so I got in touch with him to see if he wanted to work on a few projects together. It’s been an absolute honor, he put down the most cinematic, wind-like and earthy violin on ’Remind Me To Forget’ and it makes me immeasurably proud.” säger Katie Melua.
