wojtek the bear – strong suit (Video Premiere)
Watch the new video for strong suit by wojtek the bear featuring guest vocals from Annie Booth
Glasgow four-piece wojtek the bear released their debut album, a talent for being unreasonable via Scottish Fiction at the end of May. The latest single to be taken from the album, strong suit features stunning guest vocals from singer-songwriter Annie Booth and is set for release digitally on 27 July via the same label.
"strong suit is our first attempt at writing an old school country and western style duet whereby a couple trade metaphorical blows throughout,” explains wojtek the bear frontman Tam Killean. “It's pretty raw in terms of lyrical content and it's definitely one of the most viscerally honest things I've ever written.
“We'd been kicking the song around in the studio whilst we were writing the album last year but it never felt properly finished,” he continues, “and although we didn't actually know Annie [Booth] at that point she was also working with the guys from Scottish Fiction so I got in touch and she agreed to come in and work on it with us. Within about ten seconds of her first take of the song with us we knew we had something special.”
