Porridge Radio have shared two collaborative tracks with Piglet, the project of Irish songwriter and producer Charlie Loane.
Titled ‘Let’s Not Fight!’ and ‘Strong Enough’, the new songs can be found on the Deluxe Edition of Porridge Radio’s Mercury Prize-nominated album ‘Every Bad’ which was released last year via Secretly Canadian.
Speaking about the tracks, Porridge Radio’s Dana Margolin explains: “Piglet is one of my favourite artists. I remember the first time I saw Charlie fronting his other band, Great Dad, and just being completely blown away and entranced by his songs and the way he was performing them. I feel very lucky that he likes my music. This collaboration felt like it was coming for a while, and luckily lockdown gave us a chance to make these songs last summer. Writing together felt great, and I really loved the whole process and bouncing off of each other’s ideas. Something that Charlie really gets is emotional intensity and I am so glad we could be intense as hell together on these tracks.”
The new songs follow up on a series of post album single releases from Porridge Radio, including ‘Good For You’ (a collaborative song with Lala Lala), ‘7 Seconds’ and festive offering ‘The Last Time I Saw You (O Christmas)’. Piglet’s debut release, the ‘Alex’s Birthday’ EP, was released in Feb 2020 through Double Dare Records.
