CATTLE & CANE COLLABORATE WITH THE UNTOLD ORCHESTRA ON STUNNING NEW VIDEO
Earlier this year, The Untold Orchestra invited Teesside siblings Joe and Helen Hammill, aka Cattle & Cane, over to The Albert Hall in Manchester to record a special version of ‘Golden’:
“We’ve spent most of the year locked away in our rehearsal room writing and recording our new album, so it was unbelievable bringing Golden to life with this incredible orchestra" explained Joe.
"It was honestly the best day and such a dream to collaborate with such talented musicians" added Helen.
‘Golden’ is taken from Cattle & Cane's upcoming fourth studio album, which will be released in 2022. Prior to that, the band headline The Globe in Stockton on Saturday 18th December - with the 1,600 capacity gig being their biggest headliner to date. Final tickets are available now from:
"After two years without playing a gig, we're so excited to finally get back on stage. We've been rehearsing hard with the band and they're sounding better than ever - it's gonna be such a special night" said Joe.
Having cut their teeth sharing stages with the likes of Tom Odell, Brian Wilson, Stereophonics, Lewis Capaldi, The Head & The Heart and Half Moon Run, Cattle & Cane have been earning a growing reputation for their magical live shows and soaring sibling harmonies.
