Chase and Status have collaborated with Blossoms on their brand-new single ‘This Moment’, out now on Virgin/EMI Records. Listen to the new single now on the Shoot New Release Playlist!
The track, co-written by both bands, features Blossoms’ frontman Tom Ogden on lead vocals, with the track performed and produced by Chase and Status and Blossoms.
‘This Moment’ is the result of a chance meeting of the two groups in the studio:
Chase and Status say:
“It was a privilege working with such a talented and hard working band as Blossoms. It’s always a challenge to collaborate with another act but this was easy”
Tom of Blossoms says:
“The collaboration came together really quickly and naturally. It was a good buzz to step out of my comfort zone. I believe the kids call such tunes ‘fucking bangers’.”
Chase and Status (Will Kennard and Saul Milton) are one of the most successful British bands of the past decade. Their ground-breaking debut album More Than A Lot is certified Gold, and featured the UK top 10 hit ‘End Credits’ featuring Plan B.
Sophomore album No More Idols was the second best-selling UK album by a British band in the year of its release. Having now surpassed double platinum status, ‘No More Idols’ included the smash hit UK top 5 single ‘Blind Faith’ featuring Liam Bailey.
Chase and Status’ third studio album Brand New Machine debuted at no. 2 in the album charts and spawned two top ten singles for the band.
Blossoms’ eponymous debut album spent two weeks at no. 1 when it was released in August last year, and the record has since achieved Gold status. They were lauded as the year’s “biggest guitar-pop shooting stars… modernist rock heroes” by NME in their 4* review of the album, with The Times praising their “soaring quality of classic indie rock”.
Chase and Status will headline Lovebox Festival at London’s Victoria Park on July 15th, while Blossoms will play Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage on Saturday 24th.
