Metronomy have shared a new live version of their track ‘Right on time’ recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
The song is the latest single from the band’s seventh album ‘Small World’, which hit Number 7 in the UK Official Charts upon its release back in February.
The session was filmed and recorded at Abbey Road Studios as a part of their 90th anniversary celebrations. Metronomy’s full length 6 song set from Abbey Road will be broadcasting live on YouTube on 19th April at 6pm BST, and available to watch back in full thereafter.
Metronomy have also shared three remixes of ‘Right on time’ by HAAi, Tune-Yards and Lynks.
Of their remix, Lynks explains: “I’ve just been on tour with Metronomy and beyond being just super lovely awesome people, they’re also one of the best live bands out there. I watched their entire set literally every night. So it’s nuts and very exciting to be doing this remix! I’ve been a huge Metronomy fan for pretty much my entire adult life, so its a true honour to bastardise this stunning indie love song they’ve written into a weird industrial-toy-box banger.
“In Metronomy’s original tune, there’s this anxious first verse about loving someone, but not knowing whether the feelings are reciprocated, before the chorus comes and goes all euphoric. I wanted to sit in that first part of the song and try and capture that anxious feeling. That insecurity and uncertainty in romance. There’s these really beautiful samples of flourishes from the original song that swell in, but disappear as soon as they’ve come into focus. When I listen to them, they remind me of those butterflies you get when you first start dating someone and try to hold yourself back from getting too excited. That’s the feeling I wanted to channel in this song.”
