Steve Adey releases 'Burning Fields'/'Everything in its Right Place'
BURNING FIELDS / EVERYTHING IN ITS RIGHT PLACE
LIMITED 7" AND DOWNLOAD 17.09.07
GRAND HARMONIUM RECORDS
The new single from Edinburgh based Steve Adey is a split double A limited 7" single and digital download: available from 17.09.07.
Everything In Its Right Place is a cover of, arguably, Radiohead's most left of mainstream song. Kid A's opener is re-interpreted with angst guitars and a codeine thick voice. On first listen, it sounds (almost) unrecognisable. Steve Adey is not afraid of taking on classic songs.
His 2006 debut 'All Things Real' featured a cover of Bob Dylan's 'Shelter From The Storm', a track that subsequently made the Times: best songs of 2006.
Burning Fields is on the flip side. An old song, written pre 'All Things Real'. A haunting and progressive folk arrangement with twists and turns, a stripped back beginning slowly building with choral singing and a cacophonous chorus.
We are releasing this limited 7" to synchronise with Steve Adey's debut headline tour (see dates below). The songs will not feature on Adey's forthcoming album, to be released in early 2008.
