TUNE THE PORTRAITS - A Different Corner (George Michael cover)
We've always loved George's music, and A Different Corner is one of our favourites of his, because it is so so heartfelt. We were heartbroken when George died on Christmas Day 2016. He was by all accounts a fabulously big-hearted guy for whom the trappings of fame coupled with a life-long struggle to find real love proved too much in the end. When the BBC's Justine Greene asked us to do something for her 2017 Christmas radio show, it was an obvious choice, and we were so pleased with how our studio recording came out that we decided to release it as a single once Justine had had the first exclusive play, which she did at 8.20am this morning UK Time. The recording features Lorraine on vocals and guitar, Jeremy on piano, keyboards, bass and vocals, and our trusty La Rochelle sidekick Vincent Imbert on all the string parts.
