Porridge Radio have shared two collaborative tracks with Piglet, the project of Irish songwriter and producer Charlie Loane, titled ‘Let’s Not Fight !’ and ‘Strong Enough’.
The tracks can be found on the Deluxe Edition of Porridge Radio’s breakthrough, Mercury Prize nominated album Every Bad which was released last year via Secretly Canadian.
The new tracks follow post-album single releases from Porridge Radio that have included ‘Good For You’ (a collaborative song with Lala Lala), the BBC 6 Music A-listed single ‘7 Seconds’ and more recently ‘The Last Time I Saw You (O Christmas)’. Piglet’s debut release, the ‘Alex’s Birthday’ EP, was released in Feb 2020 through Double Dare Records.
On working with Piglet for the newly released collaborative tracks, Dana Margolin, who fronts Porridge Radio, said:
“Piglet is one of my favourite artists. I remember the first time I saw Charlie fronting his other band, Great Dad, and just being completely blown away and entranced by his songs and the way he was performing them. I feel very lucky that he likes my music. This collaboration felt like it was coming for a while, and luckily lockdown gave us a chance to make these songs last summer. Writing together felt great, and I really loved the whole process and bouncing off of each other’s ideas. Something that Charlie really gets is emotional intensity and I am so glad we could be intense as hell together on these tracks.”
