This time the lucky old man is Larry Adler...
CATATONIA‘s CERYS MATTHEWS has been involved in yet another collaboration, this time with 87-year-old LARRY ADLER.
Previously, the Catatonia singer has duetted with 60-year-old Welsh crooner Tom Jones on the jazz standard ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ and 34-year-old Scouse indie pop merchant Tommy Scott of Space on ‘The Ballad Of Tom Jones’.
The combined ages of Cerys and her recent singing partners is a very elderly 213 .
She was backed by a 16-piece orchestra and accompanied by harmonica ace Adler.
Speaking at the recording, Matthews said: “Of course I’m a fan of Larry. You’d have to be deaf not to be. I prefer older men.”
Catatonia make a return to the live arena at a concert organised by Unison, the public sector’s union, at the Manchester Evening News Arena on April 28.
The concert is to raise funds and awareness for the ‘Campaign For A Living Wage’ campaign.
