The Coral have launched a makeover to one of their most successful tracks, ‘Dreaming Of You’ in time for their 20th anniversary celebrations.
‘Dreaming Of You’ is The Coral’s platinum selling track that has recently been given a new uplift of life after almost two decades. The Coral consists of James Skelly, Ian Skelly, Nick Power, Paul Duffy and Paul Molloy. Soon to celebrate their 20 year anniversary on the band, they have chosen to re-release a fan favourite music video to celebrate.
It’s summery vibe enhances the listening experience, and combined the perfect clash of instruments and satisfying vocals.
The band have decided to relaunch the track, with new audio and a new music video. The music video screams fun, and looks like a really interesting one to film. Featuring a covered collage wall, the visual has had a complete makeover to suit audiences in an age where a sharper look grabs the eye before anything else.
When discussing the track, James Skelly said:
“It was a song we hadn’t yet recorded during the main studio sessions, but when Broudie heard it he said it had to be on there and we went back into the studio to get down this angular version that fitted the rest of the album. I’d had the song since meeting Mick and John for the first time and they said they really liked our stuff. We sat and spoke about Love, who we are massively influenced by, as he actually knew Arthur Lee a bit. I just went home from their praccy room, picked up my guitar and ‘Dreaming Of You’ came out of nowhere.”
Excitingly after the recording sessions at Linford Manor studios, the band and their producer (Ian Broudie) went into a mixing session to review the rest of the album. By chance, Skelly played ‘Dreaming Of You’ which fell into place perfectly with the rest of the album. Listeners can’t believe that the track may have never been heard at all!
