La­nark­shire band cover Scot­tish clas­sic

Hamilton Advertiser - - FAIRHILL -

La­nark­shire band De­cem­ber are well known for their love of Ir­ish su­per­stars U2 – but they have now re­leased a cover of a clas­sic from Scot­tish band Big Coun­try

The three-piece is­sued an al­bum last year that re-in­ter­preted some U2 hits.

Now, they have put out a cover of In a Big Coun­try.

And singer Ails Pat­ti­son said of the new ver­sion came about nat­u­rally for them.

She ex­plained:“in our live shows we were play­ing a snip­pet of In a Big Coun­try at the end of one of our own songs.

“It be­came a re­ally emo­tional mo­ment in the set and we wanted to try and recre­ate that in the stu­dio.

“We love the orig­i­nal ver­sion – it’s the most live sound­ing stu­dio record­ing ever prob­a­bly.

“Stu­art Adam­son’s lyrics are so per­sonal and emo­tional.

“Ours is a bit dif­fer­ent but we hope we’ve recorded a ver­sion that does jus­tice to a band that so many still adore for wear­ing their hearts on their sleeves and cre­at­ing such pas­sion­ate mu­sic.”

Singer Ails and gui­tarists Paul Ferrie and Scott Pat­ti­son are now tour­ing North Amer­ica and Europe through­out 2018, af­ter re­leas­ing an al­bum of orig­i­nal ma­te­rial, Sis­ter and Broth­ers, in April to crit­i­cal ac­claim.
