Lucy Spraggan has announced the release of new single Stick the Kettle On feat. Scouting For Girls, which is out and released now through Cooking Vinyl.
Lucy and Scouting For Girls singer Roy Stride met and became friends whilst performing at many of the same summer festivals. With their outwardly British vocals, their voices are perfectly matched on new single Stick the Kettle On, which is a heart-warming pop track with a poignant and important lyrical meaning. Written in support of charity CALM (The Campaign Against Living Miserably), the track raises awareness of male suicide ahead of World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th September, and how it’s always good to talk and discuss your worries. The accompanying video features a number of storylines which follow the theme of the lyrics and portray the crucial meaning of the song.
Lucy says; “I’m super excited to be working with one of my favourite bands. It was such fun to work with Roy and writing a song about something we both feel so passionately about came along so naturally. Scouting For Girls recently celebrated 10 years of success; it is surreal to go from a 17-year-old enjoying their tunes, to be 27 and writing and releasing a duet with them!”
Roy says; “The headlines shock us but the statistics speak for themselves. Suicide is the biggest cause of death in men under the age of 50. Lucy and I were working together in the studio when this subject came up and we felt compelled to write something about it.”
“I hope ‘Stick the Kettle On’ is viewed as a positive message about the importance of talking to people, your friends, your family, anyone. This has been one of the most fulfilling projects that I have been involved with; made even better by working with such a lovely and talented person as Lucy, whose music I’ve loved since I first heard it.”
