London, UK. (Top40 Charts/ Stiff Records) - Stiff Records is proud to announce "Barking Up The Right Tree," the debut single from The Producers - a true super-group in the proper, old-fashioned sense of the word. As individual producers and artists, they've scored more than 200 hit singles and albums, and now they've come together to get back to basics and write and perform in their own right.
The Producers are:
* Lol Creme: guitars/vocals (10cc, Godley & Creme, Kate Bush)
* Trevor Horn: bass/vocals (Buggles, Yes, Pet Shop Boys, tATu)
* Stephen Lipson: guitars (Rolling Stones, McCartney, Annie Lennox)
* Chris Braide: keyboards/vocals (Will Young, Kylie Minogue)
* Ash Soan: drums (Marianne Faithful, Faithless, Natasha Bedingfield)
The Producers started out playing a string of impromptu, secret gigs at venues like the Camden Barfly at the end of last year, and were joined on stage by friends and collaborators like Will Young and Jamie Cullum. Since then, they've been holed up at Trevor Horn's infamous Sarm West studios recording their debut album and single, "Barking Up The Right Tree."
Having been responsible for some of the most lavish and extravagant pop music and videos of the past 20 years, The Producers is a group getting back to their roots, playing and writing for themselves and creating something quite different: hand-made and hand-crafted. A beautiful, shuffling ballad, "Barking Up The Right Tree" is a perfect summer single, whether it's sunny beaches or washed-out seaside towns.
As well as taking lead vocals on "Barking Up The Right Tree," Lol Creme delivers a unique, hand-drawn animated video. The genius behind classics like Frankie's "Two Tribes" and Herbie Hancock's "Rockit," this is Lol's first new video for 13 years and his first ever animated work.
