‘Heart Shaped Stone’, the lead single from Kathryn Williams’ forthcoming new album ‘Crown Electric’, has been added to the Radio 2 B-list. The single will be released on September 30th. Crown Electric, Kathryn’s first solo album in 3 years, is available to pre-order now on iTunes, Amazon and the OLI store.
Produced by long-time musical foil Neill McColl and mixed by David Wrench, ‘Crown Electric’ was largely recorded at Bryn Derwen Studios in Wales with sumptuous strings added at Ray Davies legendary Konk Studios in North London. It boasts some stunning collaborations with Ed Harcourt (‘Darkness Light’, ‘Morning Twilight’, ‘Sequins’) and James Yorkston (‘Arwen’).
One of Britain’s finest songwriters, Kathryn’s music has always challenged the distinctions between folk and pop, but with songs as strong as ‘Monday Morning’ and ‘Heart Shaped Stone’ waiting in the wings, ‘Crown Electric’ has the potential to catapult Kathryn into a much bigger league.
Kathryn’s biggest UK tour to date began this week and will continue through September and into October. Click here for a full list of tour dates.
