Michael P Cullen’s new single, “Do You Believe” is out April 6.
Do You Believe, is a vivid, swirling tale of a marriage almost beyond reprieve. Michael’s melancholy baritone glides over a shimmering cocktail of seventies organ, insistent drums, a web of beats and loops and Michael’s own guitars alternately chiming and feeding back throughout.
Produced with Tim Powles of The Church and mixed by English producer Danton Supple, the track is rich and dense. Mr Supple applies just enough polish to get the song on the radio without smoothing out too many of Michael’s rough edges. Do You Believe is the first release since last year’s Live At Lazybones EP which followed the critically acclaimed True Believer LP.
Do You Believe first appeared on Michael’s debut album Love Transmitter. This re-make retains much of the original guitar and drum tracks recorded at Tim Powles’ Spacejunk I studio in Glebe in the early 2000s. Recently Michael re-recorded the vocals, bass, organ and other bits and pieces at Rancom St Studios in South Sydney using their fabulous MCI JH 16 2 inch tape recorder.
