Wigan-based guitar-pop/indie pop/alt band The Lottery Winners have unleashed their new single “Money“, featuring Happy Mondays legend Shawn Ryder .
The song is taken from their forthcoming fifth album ‘Anxiety Replacement Therapy‘, set to be released on April 28 via Modern Sky Recordings, and which will also feature collaborations with Boy George and Frank Turner. Get it here.
Speaking about it, band member Thom says:
“Firstly, SHAUN RYDER is on our single. How mental is that? Being in the studio with him was a very strange and wonderful experience. He gave me a conker that he had in his pocket for some reason. I love him. He’s a true Manchester music legend and truly is a genius.
Filming the video was bananas as well. We filmed it where they shot Peaky Blinders. At one point I had to drive a Luton van past a Happy Monday into Tommy Shelby’s driveway. I’ve got a weird life.
The song is a banger. It’s about being skint, and I’m sure a lot of people can relate to that at the moment, while it costs both an arm and a leg just to heat your house.”
Watch the video below, created and filmed at the iconic Arley Hall, in Cheshire with Shaun Ryder.
