‘Heart Shaped Stone’, the lead single from Kathryn Williams’ forthcoming new album ‘Crown Electric’ is available to stream on her SoundCloud for the first time.
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.
In support of ‘Crown Electric’ Kathryn will embark on her biggest UK tour for many years during September and October, as below. More dates are tba.
