Lawson: "'Roads' Is The Perfect Song To Help Us Have Success In America"


Lawson

The second album can often be the most difficult task for some bands. For Lawson, considering how their debut album went platinum, they certainly felt the pressure with their second. "I think it's pressure in a good way, really", explained Andy Brown, the band's lead vocalist when he spoke to Contact Music recently. This pressure helped push them to record at the prestigious Blackbird Studios in Nashville, leading to a discussion about how their music translates to an American audience.

Having fully discussed the feelings of working in Nashville, and how the studio effected their musical output, the Liverpool-based band took to discussing the possibility of working in America more often. "We love American music; some of our favourite bands are American" explained Brown. He continued to reveal how their work in Nashville and Los Angeles had led to them using American producers on both albums, influencing their music with an American vibe.

Lawson - Interview


An Interview with Lawson

With the recent release of the first single from their highly anticipated second album, Lawson's vocalist, Andy, took some time to talk to Contact Music about how a little band from Liverpool ended up recording at one of the most prestigious studios in the US, along with touring with Take That, and explaining how their song writing is getting better and better.

Hi Andy, how are you doing today?
Good, thank you! I've got a day off so I'm chilling at home, which is a nice change to being out on the road. We've been promoting the brand new single so we've been a little bit busy over the last month or so. 

Ah great, so you've been playing gigs too?
We've done some gigs; we did a couple of dates with Take That. Basically, we've just been roaming up and down the country, doing a few bits and bobs.

Q. How Many UK No.1's Does Jay-Z Have? A. Less Than You Think


Jay Z Mumford And Sons Robin Thicke Icona Pop Kanye West Michael Buble Rod Stewart Justin Timberlake Will.i.am Lawson Passenger Daft Punk John Newman

Incredibly, Jay-Z has landed his first ever UK number one album, with Magna Carta Holy Grail storming the chart and holding off Mumford & Sons and Rod Stewart. The rapper's previous highest-charting album was the 2011 collaborate effort with Kanye West, Watch the Throne, which entered at No.3.

Holy Grail managed to hold off Mumford & Sons' Babel despite a surge in sales following the group's triumphant headlining show at the Glastonbury Festival. Jay-Z also comfortably outsold Rod Stewart's number-one album Time. Passenger took the third spot with All The Little Light, with Canadian crooner Michael Buble dropped two places to No.4 with To Be Loved.

Jay-Z has been performing in the UK this weekend, headlining the second night of the Wireless music festival at the Queen Elizabeth Park on the former Olympics site. "I feel the love tonight," Jay-Z, 43, told the crowd, "You've been an incredible audience tonight." The rapper - still one of the biggest hip-hop acts in the world - was joined by Timberlake during the encore for a rendition of Holy Grail.
