Cattle & Cane release their brand new album  Navigator on  Friday 8th November 2019 via Believe. Produced by  Pete Hammerton (The Shires, Wandering Hearts, Tom Gregory), sibling duo  Joe and  Helen Hammill display a confidence and maturity that sees their soaring harmonies and timeless song-writing come to the fore.

The first single taken from the album,  Mexico, is set for release in June and has already received support from  BBC Radio 2, including a live session on the Saturday Afternoon show.

“For the first time ever, we took a step back last year and actually thought about how Cattle & Cane should sound and where we want to take it” says  Joe. “Being in a band isn’t always easy and sometimes it can take some time to find your way, but this is undoubtedly the most excited we’ve ever been about sharing new music” he adds. “We’ve always been ambitious,” explains  Helen, “but I think locking ourselves away with Pete [Hammerton] for the last few months has enabled us to create some songs that really justify our ambition” she adds.

“Lyrically, this album is definitely our most introspective and heart on sleeve” suggests  Joe. “It was only once we’d finished recording all of the songs that I realised quite how many of them are about break-ups and failed relationships!” he adds. Having spent the past couple of years playing alongside with the likes of  Tom Odell,  Brian Wilson,  The Head & The Heart and  Nerina Pallot, Cattle & Cane have every right to be ambitious. Sold-out signs are commonplace at their own headline gigs, including huge statement dates in their native North East at  Sage Gateshead and  Middlesbrough Town Hall, where a crowd of over 1,200 witnessed a magical performance alongside the  Northern Orchestra last June.

Helen and Joe have also appeared at acclaimed international tastemaker events  Canadian Music Week and Reeperbahn Festival, as well as some of the UK’s finest boutique and inner-city showcases like  Tramlines,  Live At Leeds,  Liverpool Sound City,  Black Deer,  Cornbury and  Deer Shed. They’re spending the summer sharing stages with the likes of  Stereophonics,  Lewis Capaldi and  Madness.
