Los Angeles, California (PressExposure) May 05, 2011 -- Natalie Walker released her new single, "Cool Kids", the second single from her highly anticipated third album, Spark, on April 26th. The new single is for sale exclusively on Beatport for two weeks before being released to iTunes, Amazon and other digital distribution outlets on May 10th. There are two remixes of the song done by the Remix Artist Collective and Linus Loves which are also available on Beatport.
"Cool Kids" is the second single from her upcoming release, Spark, slated for a June 7th release date via Dorado Music. The first single, "Uptight", was released on March 26th and the single debuted immediately on Jason Bentley's KCRW show, Morning Becomes Eclectic.
Spark is the third album from the Indiana-born, Colorado-based singer-songwriter, whose prior work has been heard on Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty, Bones, 90210, and Entourage, among other places. With her richly expressive vocals floating in elegant, spacious instrumental settings, Walker explores powerfully personal territory on tracks like the reflective "I Found You," the questing "Sunday Afternoon," and the gorgeous life lesson "Mars".
Walker crafted half the tracks with Ted Bruner (Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Plain White T's) and half with Dan Chen and Nate Greenberg of Stuhr (Mya, Nicole Atkins, Bebel Gilberto), the Brooklyn-based production team behind 2008's With You and her 2006 solo debut, Urban Angel. Yet Spark is remarkably consistent; its jewel-box arrangements never crowd the song, incorporating eclectic instrumentation such as MiniMoog, vocoder, Fender Rhodes, cello and harpsichord .
Like her spiritual pilgrimages, Walker's musical search has taken her to an array of locales, including Philadelphia, where she sang in the trip-hop outfit Daughter Darling before going solo, meeting up with Brooklyn-based Chen and Greenberg, and journeying to L.A. in search of a new muse. During that time she's gathered such champions as Jason Bentley (of trendsetting L.A. noncommercial station KCRW); Electronica luminaries King Britt and Thievery Corporation; and Sofia Coppola, who placed Thievery Corporation's remix of Angel's "Quicksand" in her film Marie Antoinette.
"Mars" is currently available for a free download in exchange for a Facebook "like" or a Tweet via Topspin widgets on her Facebook and Twitter pages.
