People Help The People
Simon Aldred is Cherry Ghost & his debut single People Help The People will be released through heavenly.
Aldred started writing a soaring ballad called People Help The People, but then "I just referenced it all back to Bolton, really, because everyone's so wrapped up in their own hardships that they're not at all arsed. It's just saying everyone's going through the same shit, extend the hand of humanity." He frowns. "It's not got that Richard Ashcroft earnestness about it," he adds hurriedly. "I don't feel like singing that song all the time, because I don't feel like that all the time."
The music on the debut album he's recorded under the name Cherry Ghost reflects a kaleidoscope of musical influences from far beyond the North West: the Cherry Ghost name comes from a line in a Wilco song, and, in quick succession, he namechecks gospel singer Mahalia Jackson, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kelis, Sparklehorse, "the really shameless melodies" of 80s pop, Smog, old soul, and the importance of the album's producer, Dan Austin, who has a day-job as part of the Massive Attack collective. But the lyrics are shot through with individuals and situations inspired by Aldred's hometown.
