NEW MUSIC: WESTERMAN X BULLION - “Katy’s Song”
17 Jul 2019
Westerman shared his cover of Simon & Garfunkels ‘Kathy's Song with Bullion.
Puzzled together by Nathan Jenkins (Bullion) and released via his own DEEK Recordings, ‘4 Down’ is the fourth instalment in a series of cover albums. Previously featuring Nilüfer Yanya, Sean Nicholas Savage and many more, this year sees Westerman, M .T. Hadley, Nautic and Bullion himself venture across and down to cover Paul Simon, XTC and Mazzy Star.
The compilation is announced today with a Westerman cover of Paul Simon’s Kathy’s Song. Produced by Bullion, the track was recorded in a little cottage (sadly earmarked for destruction) in the middle of Lisbon, following Nathan’s move there last year.
Staying true to the “pop, not slop!” ethos of the label, ‘4 Down’ brings together a community of adventurous artists attempting to solve the riddles of pop music one song at a time. A new name here includes north London’s Joviale, who opens the compilation with a version of Rare Silk’s transcendent ‘Storm’.
Born out of Bullion's work as a producer and a growing list of collaborations, the idea behind the series was sparked by the common desire to sing a song you wish you'd written.
