KATIE MELUA presents brand new single ‘AIRTIME’
Following last month’s announcement of her new album Album No. 8, acclaimed Georgian-British singer-songwriter Katie Melua has released a second track from that stunning new LP.
“I think we’ve given love too much airtime,” Melua sings on “Airtime”, a song in which she gently repudiates existing preconceptions about what happens when people fall out of love – “in particular,” she explains, “the pressure to believe that the love of your life is out there somewhere.”
Co-composed with her long-time collaborators, bassist Tim Harries and guitarist Luke Potashnick, “Airtime” is arranged and produced by Leo Abrahams (whose roll call of production and writing credits features albums by Brian Eno, Jon Hopkins and David Holmes) and features the Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra.
“Airtime” is the second video in a series of visuals Melua has collaborated on with the award winning director Charlie Lightening and featuring actor Bill Howle (Star Wars, Dunkirk, Outlaw King). The shoot took place over two days in Herne Bay on the England’s South Coast following APA lockdown guidelines. Melua and Billy isolated before and after the shoot to enable the scenes to be possible as well as being tested for COVID19.
