Everyone’s favourite sisters, Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas, release a cracking new mix of album highlight Don’t Be A Stranger, featuring Grammy-nominated US country star Cam. The track originally appeared on their acclaimed 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.”
Cam, who has written songs for Sam Smith and Miley Cyrus, released her third album, The Otherside, last year to critical acclaim. Her double-platinum GRAMMY, CMA and ACM-nominated single, Burning House, remains the bestselling country song by a female solo artist since its release in 2015.
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.”
Ward Thomas will embark on an intimate Invitation acoustic tour, which has been rescheduled for November 2021. The 16-date run includes two nights at London’s Union Chapel on the 29th & 30th. Ward Thomas will perform at City Varieties in Leeds on 10th November 2021.
