The Welsh electronic musician, Kelly Lee Owens has teamed up with the music artist John Cale for the brand new track named ‘Corner Of My Sky’ from his upcoming album ‘Inner Song.‘ Listen to the full track below.
John Cale sings in both English and Welsh over Owens’ droning instrumental. They both first met in London during Owens was collaborating on a song for Cale, then they decided to produce the track together for the upcoming album, Inner Song.
Previously, Kelly released the singles, including, “On,” “Night” and “Melt!” from the album, ‘Inner Song,’ the album marks Owens’ self-titled debut album, released in 2017. Pre-order the full album by clicking here.
“It’s not usually this immediate that a productive afternoon brings a satisfying conclusion to a task,” Cale says. “Kelly sent me a track she’d written, an instrumental that was a gentle drift, something comfortably familiar to what I’d been working on myself.
Cale added, “On the first listen, the lyrics came with ease and a chorus and melody grew out of it. Even the Welsh phrases seemed to develop from a place of reflective memory, which was a surprise since I hadn’t written in Welsh for decades. Once finished, I realized there existed a built-in thread we’d created together and apart, and her kind spirit pulled it all together and in quick order.”
Then Owens continued: “I knew with this album I needed to connect with my roots and therefore having the Welsh language featured on the record felt very important to me. Once the music for the track was written and the sounds were formed,
“I sent the track straight to John and asked if he could perhaps delve into his Welsh heritage and tell the story of the land via spoken-word, poetry, and song. What he sent back was nothing short of phenomenal. The arrangement was done during the mixing process and once I’d finished the track.”
