Palace Winter Pays Homage to Little Richard... and His Positive Attitude
"Richard (Says Yes)", the latest single off of Palace Winter's upcoming album is out today, and the title of the song really says it all.
One late night on tour, the band was watching a documentary about Little Richard:
“Little Richard came on and we were both just floored by how f***in’ alive and funny and inspiring he was. So, he kind of became this little team mascot for us. Like, just do it ALL! ‘Put some sugar on it, man! MORE!’ So this song is exactly that. Richard says yes to f***in’ EVERYTHING!” says lead singer Carl Coleman. It’s a “big colourful banger to fill the canvas.”
Featuring the vocals of Marie Fjeldsted of Penny Police along with the acclaimed saxophone of Ned Ferm (MØ, Mark Guiliana, Yusef Lateef), “Richard (Says Yes)” feels like it carries the unstoppable energy of the late pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll, who passed after the song was recorded.
