Singer-songwriter Casey Barnes has today unleashed his brand new single ‘The One You Love’. The upbeat track was recorded at Studio 301 in Byron Bay and saw Casey work with legendary ARIA award winning producer, Nick Didia. Nick has been responsible for working with such music heavy weights as Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine and Australia’s own Powderfinger and Kasey Chambers. The track has had wonderful support at radio on its first week and reached #7 in the Australian Top 20 downloads on PLAYmpe.
‘Working with Nick DiDia on this track has honestly been a dream come true especially when you stop and realize who he’s worked with over the years. We’re so blessed to have a producer like him in the country and he’s taken this song exactly where I wanted it to go. I really feel this is one of the strongest singles I’ve released to date. I can’t wait for you all to hear it now’ Casey Barnes
