Southampton cover aficionados The Lounge Kittens have just unveiled another cut from their eagerly awaited debut album, ‘Sequins & C-Bombs’. This time around the girls have taken on Toto‘s classic hit, ‘Africa’.
You can stream and watch the video for the cover, which sees the trio putting it together in the studio, below:
Speaking of the cover, Jen Deacon explains, “We’ve been performing ‘Africa’ live for years. In fact, it’s one of the very first songs we ever arranged as a band. But we’ve reinvented it for the album so this is a brand new version that no one has heard yet. We really pushed ourselves with this one and it features more layering than we’ve done before. By the end of the song we’re all singing several parts so it was a whole new experience layering the harmonies in the studio.”
Their debut album, ‘Sequins & C-Bombs’, is set for release on September 16th 2016. You can pre-order it now from their PledgeMusic campaign page (here).
