David Holmes Hooks Up With Song Sung

For a very special cover of a 10cc classic...

David Holmes isn't the sort of artist who does things by halves.

The Northern Irish producer tends to throw himself into projects, a total immersion approach that has resulted in some truly special moments.

Invited to chair a new instalment of Late Night Tales, David Holmes proved to be typically fastidious in his curatorial skills.

Out on October 21st (order LINK), the somnambulist mix features a plethora of unheard material, with some cuts being specially recorded for the mix.

Song Sung are an Irish duo, whose take on 10cc's 'I'm Not In Love' forms one of the most directly beautiful moments of the selection.

David Holmes explains: "Song Sung are Una and Georgina McGeough, identical twin sisters from County Monaghan. I first met them after they wrote to me asking me to produce them. After one bottle of red wine and some very poor quality demos of them singing I was sold. 18 months later we have created a 12 track album which should hopefully see the light of day soon. This cover of 'I'm Not In Love' by 10cc was produced by me especially for Late Night Tales at my studio in Belfast. The vocals were recorded in NYC with keyboards by Keefus Ciancia and mixing by Emre Ramazanoglu."

A sumptuous feast of sound, Song Sung's divine, relaxed approach is mirrored perfectly by David Holmes' exact yet unfussy approach.
