New sonic impulses…
5 August 2020
Welsh artist/producer KELLY LEE OWENS and living VU legend JOHN CALE, also Welsh, worked together on a new song called CORNER OF MY SKY from Owens new, second album Inner Song, out 28th August.
A fascinating piece with Owens’ ominous synth-scapes and Cale musing all over it with his characteristic, doomy vox, singing both in English and Welsh,
Cale said about the collaboration: “Kelly sent me a track she’d written — an instrumental that was a gentle drift — something comfortably familiar to what I’d been working on myself. On the first listen, the lyrics came with ease and a chorus and melody grew out of it.”
Owens added: “I knew with this album I needed to connect with my roots and therefore having the Welsh language featured on the record felt very important to me. Once the music for the track was written and the sounds were formed, I sent the track straight to John and asked if he could perhaps delve into his Welsh heritage and tell the story of the land via spoken-word, poetry and song.
