Having just been confirmed as main support for Tinie Tempah on his Autumn UK tour, Nero release their third single 'Guilt' on MTA Records, a label set up by Chase & Status. The single features vocals from long-time collaborator Alana Watson.
Each of the three singles released so far will feature on Nero's debut album 'Welcome Reality' which will be released on 1st August 2011. London based producers Daniel Stephens and Joe Ray are Nero, having independently released their first single in 2008 the band have gone onto winning critical acclaim for their original songs and remixes for the likes of La Roux, Deadmau5, N*E*R*D and Daft Punk.
Their first single proper 'Me & You' was named by Zane Lowe as the 'Hottest Record In The World' whilst Radio 1 daytime presenters Fearne Cotton and Greg James both had the track as their record of the week; it's no surprise to announce that Nero have been confirmed as playing at this year's Radio 1's Big Weekend In Carlisle.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
