New release: UK singer-songwriter Charlie Hole - There Will Be No King (single)

Charlie's Easter groove

Charlie Hole is one of the most exciting young singer-songwriters around nowadays. Tackling relatable subject matters for all audiences, the Bournemouth-born-and-raised musician with a brave and honest voice has already been coined by Rod Stewart as an emerging talent with a gift for writing 'beautiful songs’. After a chance meeting with well-respected guitarist and producer Jim Cregan (Rod Stewart, Katie Melua, Family), the pair began working closely together, with Jim mentoring Charlie and teaching him about the world of songwriting while always pushing him to develop his own style and sound.

There Will Be No King is the seventh single from the upcoming Charlie Hole album Beautiful Decay, and a very fitting song to be released on Good Friday.

Some words about the single:

"Recording 'There Will Be No King' was probably the most fun I’ve ever had in a studio. The most important thing to get right was the rhythm section, and once we had an idea of what the drums and bass were doing, everything else came easily. Once we had the right feel, we spent a fair amount of time overdubbing a few bits here and there, and getting the vocals right, but mostly the recording was done in one take. The song itself was meant to be a little bit of fun, exploring storytelling and interweaving some different themes. I tend to over-write lyrics, and I end up with more than I need, then the hard part is editing and making it all fit together chronologically. I had the lyrics for years before I found the right changes, but it ended up being a super simple song with a killer groove - one of my favourites to play live."

There Will Be No King is released this week and available for purchase/streaming on all known digital platforms
