The Premier League has recorded a new anthem for the forthcoming season. Composed by Peter Lawlor it will be played at the beginning of every league game where the players shake hands.
I suppose its a grower.
Hear it at Peter Lawlor's MySpace page.Peter Lawlor's MySpace page
Edit: It is called "My Saturday Self" which is a laugh as we shall play most of our games on a Sunday!
Peter Lawlor said on his blog:
"From the start of next season every premiership team will perform the "Handshake" ceremony to this track.
Also all around the world, the track will be the theme music for all Premiership tv programmes.
We had an amazing time recording the track in Abbey Road 2, On Bass my good buddy Johnathan Noyce, On drums the astonishing Smiley Barnard, my old compardre Levine Andrade led the strings.
Levine's CV is astonishing: Led Zep, ELO, The Ardetti Quartet etc etc
Daryl Griffiths conducted brilliantly.
I am mixing the long version at the moment and will stick it on the site when its done.
The Premier League chaps are going to take us all the a well known Stadium near Stretford to hear the track playing on the first day of the Season....I really can't wait!
To hear the track banging out in front of 76,000 people will be an unbelievable experience!
oh yeh, Pete Murray played a bit of piano as well"
