‘Running To Midnight’ was written and recorded over the past 9 months in Cape Town, the USA and whilst on the road promoting their debut album across Europe.
The first single from the album is ‘Stars Above You’. The video was shot in the forests of Mpumalanga last week with award winning director Tristan Holmes. The world exclusive first play of the single and music video will take place, on South African radio and TV stations, on Friday 1st July 2011.
The last 12 months has been a whirlwind experience for the Chaplin twins – achieving #1 Platinum Status success of their debut album, ‘Sun In My Pocket’, a sold out Arena tour, an international record deal, an MK Award for ‘Best Newcomer’, and touring the world along the way!
Commenting on the new album, Andrew Chaplin said: “I’m really excited about this new album, we’ve let loose with experimentation in the sound. With saying that, it was tough, because there’s an expectation of this being a follow up to a very successful debut – but overall I’m very confident in this album, because it’s much more relevant to where we are now.”
Brian Chaplin added: “‘Running To Midnight’ was definitely the most eventful experience I’ve had with writing and recording, and it comes through in the sound. There are highs and lows, and all around a seriously intense and fun story. This is not our previous album, and I can’t wait to show it to everybody!”
