Cattle & Cane Premieres New Song “Icarus” on BBC Music Introducing
British sibling indie folk duo Cattle & Cane, consisting of Joseph Hammill and Helen Hammill, premiered a new song “Icarus” BBC Music Introducing in the North East.
The song is the fifth single off of their upcoming album “Golden”, which is set to be released on November 17, 2023.
It was written over Zoom with Nashville based songwriter Rebakh Powell, recorded at the band's home studio in Thornaby, UK, produced by Luke Elgie in Newcastle and then mixed by Mike Butler in San Diego, CA.
Joseph Hammill said of the song, “Icarus is about those moments we get carried away. Those early stages of something exciting where our instincts are to go too quickly. The excitement that overcomes our sensible heads warning to relax a bit and not run away with ourselves. But also that it's better to be that way than a cynic. It's better to be hopeful and naive than a cynic. It's that idea of all in. Without compromise, no matter the cost. I'll deal with it later kinda attitude.”
- Their new album was initially slated for 2022, but Helen and Joe stepped away from music last year to focus on life away from music - without going into details, it's fair to say that life can be tough at times. With that in mind, it's perhaps befitting that hope is a theme that reoccurs throughout the new record, and that the importance of family is also integral to the album - which is reflected in the artwork for the campaign being built around childhood photos of Joe and Helen.
