‘Magnet’ is the name of the first original song from Kate Ceberano’s first original album in 10 years.
Kate’s last album of original material was ‘Girl Can Help It’ in 2003. Since then she has released the covers albums ‘Nine Lime Avenue’ and ‘So Much Beauty’, the jazz record ’19 Days In New York’, the Christmas album ‘Merry Christmas’, the live record ‘Live with the WASO’ and two special project albums ‘Bittersweet’ with Mark Isham and ‘Dallas et Kate’ with Dallas Cosmas.
The new album has been titled ‘Kensal Road’. It was recorded at Kensaltown Studios in London.
‘Magnet’ was cowritten with Malaysian born, US based singer-songwriter Yuna and James Bryan. “Magnet is a very beautiful and delicate song, and it’s not surprising because the co-writer of the song is an artist named Yuna. There’s something very special and captivating about the song, and I feel we created a really magical moment with this piece”, she said in a statement.
‘Magnet’ will be released on June 14. It is Kate’s first release for her new label Sony Music.
