The release of ‘Lonely Town’ instigated a wave of anticipation for Galen & Paul’s debut album. The song received its radio premiere from Craig Charles at BBC 6 Music, which was followed by airplay courtesy of Gary Crowley at BBC Radio London. It was also highlighted with a variety of news reports from Rolling Stone, NME, MOJO, Louder Sound and Louder Than War.
‘Can We Do Tomorrow Another Day?’ is a collection of bilingual duets in which Galen & Paul explore an eclectic array of European music cultures, while also capturing evocative vignettes of life across the continent. Led by Galen’s gorgeous voice as she duets with Paul, both singing in both English and Spanish, the resulting album journeys across the continent, taking inFrench chansons, Spanish pop and English sea shanties; evoking scenes stretching from Edgware Road to Hydra Island; and painting pictures of everything from elegant Parisian cafes to drunk tourists in Magaluf.
‘Can We Do Tomorrow Another Day?’ was produced by the legendary Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T-Rex, Sparks) with a band consisting of Simon Tong (The Verve, The Good, The Bad and The Queen), Sebastian Rochford (Polar Bear, David Byrne, Patti Smith) and Dan Donovan (Big Audio Dynamite).
The album is available to pre-order or pre-save HERE. The duo’s official store offers a range of bundles including signed vinyl and CDs, while select retailers offer a transparent pink vinyl format.
