After an extended hiatus away from the music scene these last few years, singer and songwriter Lee O’Brien has now returned to the fold to present his anthemic new single ‘You And I’.
Lifted from his forthcoming new album ‘This Is Me’, ‘You And I’ sees the artist deliver one of his most uplifting offerings to date. Produced and co-written by the legendary Francis Rossi of Status Quo, the track packs in a blend of catchy riffs, killer hooks, and some brilliant singalong vocals to create a fun and toe-tapping gem that leaves us eager for what he has in store for us in the future.
Speaking about the new single, he said, “You & I was a song written for my wife when she was going through a difficult time in her life. It is literally about being in a relationship where you accept them for all good and bad traits and make them your one and only!”
After spending the last few years dabbling in and out of the music industry, Lee O’Brien took the opportunity that the global pandemic gave him to create his latest body of work. During the lockdown he finished various songs he had started to write years ago. He called producer Francis Rossi and asked if he could help with the music. Together, they penned three singles for the upcoming album while producing the record in its entirety. With a relationship that spanned the last twenty years, Francis kindly offered the use of his studio and recommended producer/engineer Andy Brook. Lee carried on writing through lockdown and when it was over, he booked Andy and headed over to the studio. They spent months working together to produce an album that not only highlighted many of the key moments in Lee’s life, but acted as a vessel to keep the group afloat during lockdown and show that something incredible could still emerge from something so troubling.
