Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas have released a new take on their track ‘Don’t Be A Stranger’, featuring Grammy-nominated US country star Cam. The track originally appeared on their recent album Invitation.
Mixed by Dan Grech (George Ezra, The Killers, Halsey), Ward Thomas’ new take on ‘Don’t Be A Stranger’ is strikingly rhythmic. Cam adds a further touch of country class to proceedings as her voice effortlessly blends with Catherine and Lizzy.
“We’ve always loved the idea of having another vocalist on ‘Don’t Be A Stranger’,” Ward Thomas said. “We love Cam’s music and songwriting skills, but also admire her attitude as a Nashville artist on many issues close to our hearts. To have her sing on one of our songs is a real treat.”
Of the track Cam said, “I love and miss the UK country community so much! I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with Lizzy & Catherine over the years and I just adore them and their killer harmonies. So of course I couldn’t say no when they asked me to join them on this addictive tune.”
‘Don’t Be A Stranger’ was co-written by Catherine and Lizzy with British writers Fiona Bevan and Hight. The track was also produced by Hight The rest of “Invitation” was largely produced by Jonathan Quarmby (Lewis Capaldi, Tom Walker, Finley Quaye), and mostly recorded in lockdown from Catherine and Lizzy’s Hampshire cottage.
