The Hot Press Newsdesk, 23 May 2012
Katell Keineg has announced details of a new free download single.
The Breton Welch artist, who lived in Ireland for many years, sings the track, titled 'Platform O', in the Welsh language.
The single will be officially launched in Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff on May 31 at 8pm. It was recorded in New York for the internet radio show, Radio Free Song Club. Katell was accompanied on the recording by the show's illustrious house band, comprising David Mansfield, the film composer who has the soundtrack to Heaven's Gate and a starring role in Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue among other high profile credits, and Dave Schramm, formerly of Yo La Tengo, amongst other luminaries.
The lyrics to 'Platform O' translate as follows:
Round and round the Horn
Down the left side
Up to another isthmus
On the way to who knows where
A gorge below
And hills in front of me
Now I'm back on Platfform 0
So glad to be on Platfform 0
Up the stairs
To sit on my hands on Platfform 0
One foot on the boat
And the other on the barge
That are sailing down the wadi
Through the thirst and the noise
