Simon and The Astronauts Releases New Song “I Have A Name” featuring Rachel Haden
- British writing/recording collective Simon and the Astronauts, consisting of Simon Wells, Ben Hewerdine and Chris Pepper, released the second single called “I Have A Name” along with a music video from their upcoming second self-titled album.
The song features American singer-songwriter Rachel Haden, who also joined in their new album.
It was written by Rachel Haden, Simon Wells, Ben Hewerdine and Chris Pepper. Produced by Chris Pepper.
Simon Wells said ofthe song, “The song is for everyone; we all have a right to be heard but we all need to listen. For too long a few people make the decisions and expect the rest of the planet to follow. It's time for change. Be it Greta Thunberg and the climate, civil or religious unrest or the problems that have never been addressed and ignored.”
He continued, “The video opens with a photo of an old lady, part of society that sometimes gets forgotten. The elderly suffered greatly through the pandemic. The TV screens show how the world is hung up with conflict and forgetting to improve the world for everyone. There is a Nirvana, Smells Like Teen Spirit homage with Monica Pop playing the caretaker, cheerleader and her best Kurt Cobain as the video progresses. It just felt right to put a little Kurt in the mix for the music and the energy he gave to us growing up.”
The debut album is set to be released on April 22, 2022.
