Newcastle singer-songwriter Callum Pitt announces his debut album In The Balance, which has been produced by John Martindale (Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs  & The Pale White) and is due out June 2nd. Accompanying this announcement is the release of an anthemic new single ‘I Feel a God and Devil in This Room’, a track filled with tender, haunting vocals, foot tapping rhythms and strings and banjo aplenty. 

Complementing the release is a beautifully shot video by Gareth Williams  filmed in the grade II listed building The Common Room in Newcastle (where Pitt played his first ever headline show) and featuring interpretive dance from Mia Fuller…

I Feel a God and Devil in This Room is about the limitless potential for good and evil on Earth. I don’t believe in any of the religions, but do believe there’s something more than this world. We definitely needn’t look any further than Earth for heaven and hell – we love killing each other & inflicting suffering and always have, but at the same time we’re surrounded by overwhelmingbeauty and this collective spirituality which presents itself in spaces like music, the arts and communities. I was fortunate enough to have a string quartet play on this, with 2 members from the Royal Northern Sinfonia, alongside some beautiful backing vocals from Jodie Nicholson & Ada Francis and saxophone from Alex Saxon. This is also my banjo playing debut!
