KT Tunstall & Be Charlotte
Here’s the view from that window in studio 2. In a morning of chaos and calm here at Abbey Road, KT Tunstall is re imagining the 80s classic ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’. Injecting a weightier darkness, the song is transformed, fresh yet respectful of the source material. It’s been a pleasure to watch the track evolve and unravel from KT’s vision through these legendary speakers.
It’s been incredible working with the engineers in Studio 2. This is us doing our upmost to soak up the genius of Paul, George and Neil as they spill their secrets. Unforgettable would be an insulting way to describe the experience of recording and mixing in Studio 2’s control room. Using the same mics and walking down the same stairs as The Beatles themselves did is surreal to say the least.
The voice of the future? It’s obvious we’re witnessing something special when BeCharlotte started to play. It’s been an honour to work with and record Dundee born singer Charlotte and her incredible accompanying musicians. Can’t wait to hear the release!
The experience at Abbey Road has given a huge insight into the process that the guys here go through, the knowledge and skill passed down to us today is enormous and will be part of our audio engineering vocabulary for the rest of our lives.
Whether it be operating Pro Tools, keeping the take sheets, or shadowing the engineers when conducting their wide variety of duties, coming to Abbey Road has given me a real insight into the nature of a professional recording environment, as well as providing some much needed inspiration. I feel incredibly lucky and privileged to have worked on this project in such an iconic studio.
Being able to have an experience of a lifetime, working and recording at Abbey Road Studio, is brilliant. And seeing how it’s done by the professionals is both refreshing and inspiring.
