Hey everyone, hope everyone is well and staying safe <3
After two years in the making, Doppelgänger is now all ready for release! Wow it's been a rollercoaster journey of ups and downs, reworks and remixing, ditching a song then giving it one last go for it to blow our minds! One song in particular which has done this is the the second song on the album called Lying in the Dust. This was on the verge of being ditched, Chris picked up his bass and magic happened, now we feel it truly deserves to be the second song.
To top it all, Andy McCluskey is a very dear friend of ours and has often sat in our studio to listen to our songs. He was listening to Adulation, the first song you will hear on Doppelgänger, turned to me and said "Will you send me the stems to this song?" Instantly I said yes, well how could I say no. Because he has done such an amazing job on the production of this song, we felt it should go first and possibly in our opinion the strongest song, but then we do have our other favourites too.
After a week or two Andy called and we chatted, he said that he'd enjoyed working on Adulation, so he wanted to do another song. I sent him Love Lies Bleeding and wow he's made it kick!
Then he had another idea. He recommended his nephew, Cameron McCluskey, as he is a producer. So we contacted him and he has created a fantastic remix for Musik. On first listen we instantly loved it. This is the bonus track to end the album.
This blog is quite brief for me, I thought I would keep it concise and not go into too much detail, so I can write more blogs. I will now try my absolute best, since the album is completed, to write lots, so we can chat in the comment box below or on the SGC Facebook page.
All 11 songs are all ready for you, there is a one minute clip of Adulation on the brand spanky new She's Got Claws website, which, as you're reading this, has been launched from midday 14 August, with news about the album, lots of new promo shots etc. All pages have had a facelift, so please have a browse - we would love to hear your comments on the new website.... www.shesgotclaws.co.uk
Doppelgänger is due for release on 25 September 2020. Pre-order as a download/stream from 11 September on iTunes and many other top stores and streaming sites, including Spotify.
