Nashville, TN (October 15, 2020) – Club44 Records is set to release a brand new single by the wonderfully talented Julie Garnyé. “Fields of Gold / Both Sides Now” was originally arranged for Garnyé by Lance Horne. The arrangement features eight cellos, recorded by Eleanor Norton, and one vocal. Garnyé and Norton appeared on Jim Caruso's online show "Pajama Cast Party" on August 3, and the performance caught the attention of Club44 owners.
“This beautiful new single by Julie Garnyé is the most wonderful combination of styles, textures and sheer musicianship,” shares Club44 Records co-owner Joel Lindsey. “I will never forget hearing her sing it for the first time and thinking ‘I want to hear that over and over again.’ I can’t wait for the world to hear it!”
For Julie, this recording filled a void left by the cancelations of live performances this year. "It all started when my friend, Drama Desk Award Winner Rene Ruiz, and I were talking about how we missed recording music for the love of it during this unprecedented time,” reflects Garnyé. “He was the one who gave me the idea to record Sting's ‘Fields of Gold.’ I immediately contacted my two incredibly talented friends, musical genius Lance Horne and the brilliant cellist Eleanor Norton, to arrange a version of the song for me to record at home. Around that same time, my friend, Jim Caruso, invited me to perform on his hugely popular weekly online variety show, Pajama Cast Party, and I knew immediately that I had to surprise him and premiere the song there. Being contacted by Club44 Records to turn it into a single was so unexpected and amazing - everything surrounding this song and this process has been an absolute joy!"
This arrangement of “Fields of Gold” was combined with Joni Mitchell’s popular song “Both Sides Now” to create a medley like no other. “Fields of Gold / Both Sides Now” will be released digitally on all streaming music platforms on November 6.
