Singer-songwriter Casey Barnes has announced today that he is set to release a brand new single ‘The One You Love’ on 30th September 2015. The single will hit radio next week and 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 & Kasey Chambers.
‘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 am pumped to share it and let everyone hear this new track!’ Casey Barnes
