Hugo Manuel, the genius behind Chad Valley, has just released a new track featuring Twin Shadow’s George Lewis Jr on vocals. ‘Owe You This’ is a dreamy pop number straight from the 80s and packed with Manuel’s cloud-cosy vibes and seamlessly blended vocal harmonies from Lewis.
Chad Valley, who made an appearance at 2011’s Up To The Sky Festival in Singapore, is set to release his debut album Young Hunger on 30 October, a hugely anticipated album following his 2011Equatorial Ultravox EP.
Having remixed the likes of Foals and The Drums, Manuel’s fascination with collaborations is showcased in Young Hunger, which will feature artists such as Active Child, Glasser, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, El Parro Del Mar, and of course, Twin Shadow.
“Before I knew what kind of album I wanted to make I knew I wanted to have guests, like a hip hop album or something. I wanted to be less introspective and so working with other singers and also with a producer made that possible. Also, I have a love of duets which I think stems from my early experiences singing in musicals”
