About this item

Two brand new tracks by The Courettes. The A-side will also feature on the band’s next album! The B-side exclusive to this release! Both tracks feature guest vocals by La La Brooks of The Crystals!

"‘California’ is a song we wrote on our first tour in California last year. We wanted to bring all the sunshine and some psychedelic vibes from The Byrds, the Laurel Canyon, and tons of 12-string guitars to our songwriting. But somehow the lyrics kept some black clouds. It talks about traveling and leaving your loved ones behind. Any musician on the road can relate to this. Although you can have a great time around the world, you’re always missing someone. Home is really where your love is. We are very proud of this track, and on top of it we have a guest vocalist. The legendary singer La La Brooks - yes, from The Crystals, the lead voice on the classic ‘Da Doo Ron Ron’, one of our favourite Phil Spector produced songs of all time. To have La La singing with us is an absolute delight and honour. It’s so surreal that we haven’t even realised it has really happened! For the mixing our producer Søren Christensen has teamed up with the fantastic Darian Sahanaja (who produced and mixed no less than Brian Wilson's SMiLE album) to enlighten even more the Californian good vibrations. So open up your windows, let the sunshine in and play this one to the max!"
