Straight off of filming a Daytrotter session, Welsh singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon is gearing up to release her next album, CYRK, on January 17th, and she’ll hit the road in support of the release in February. CYRK‘s lead single is the warm and cheerful “Puts Me To Work,” which, according to Le Bon, is about how fleeting sentimentality can be.
“I suppose the song is about how forgiving one can be towards someone or something depending on your current situation, and how quickly sentimentality can be thrown out the window when needs must,” she says.
A fun fact about the recording of “Puts Me To Work” is that it was recorded on an out-of-tune piano. “I recorded this song on a piano that, for some reason unbeknown to anyone it seems, was tuned a semitone down. It still is, I’m told,” Le Bon shares.
