TOM McRAE releases new single EXPECTING THE RAIN featuring The Cadbury Sisters!
Tom McRae and The Standing Band released their new album, ‘Did I Sleep And Miss The Border?’ through Gentle Recordings/Universal on May the 11th. The son of Christian missionaries, McRae is forgiven for picturing a ragged itinerant preacher, proclaiming Armageddon. According to Tom and his band, the end is always nigh. Recorded in Wales, Los Angeles, and Somerset this is Mercury and Brit nominated McRae’s 7th studio album, and is the follow up to 2013’s critically acclaimed ‘From The Lowlands”.
For his new single ‘Expecting the Rain’, he teamed up with The Cadbury Sisters. Tom worked with them last year on their own forthcoming album and fell in love with their close harmony singing. Says Tom: “there’s an ethereal quality to their voices that I thought would add an extra layer of mystery to this already dark narrative song, singing around just one mic the recording session was blessed with magic”.
Tom McRae and The Standing Band will be in concert at the Ancienne Belgique on October the 2nd!
