Chance Waters has come back swinging with Young & Dumb, the under-your-skin-catchy follow up single featuring enchanting Australian songstress, Bertie Blackman, which was exclusively premiered on triple j’s Good Nights with Linda Marigliano tonight.
On the seemingly unlikely collaboration, Chance Waters explained that once he had the song concept in mind, he needed the right female vocalist to complete the track. He felt that Bertie Blackman and he were moving in parallel paths in their production, their sound and unusual pop aesthetic. After numerous Skype conversations and e-mails, a friendship was forged and thus commenced this exciting collaboration.
With production from recent hit machine One Above (Hilltop Hoods – I Love It, Illy – Heard It All) who also takes credit behind the boards for his work on Maybe Tomorrow and featuring horns and strings by members of Unearthed darlings Lime Cordiale & Cogel, the collaboration is seemingly pre-destined to be one of the biggest songs this summer.
Bertie Blackman and Chance Waters are currently working on an ambitious Young & Dumb video concept together.
Young & Dumb will be available to purchase on iTunes tomorrow, Friday September 21.
