Laying Down Guitars for Band's Latest Hit Single

Words by Keith Bayley, Wednesday 20 Jun 2018


Resident head-composer and guitarist Paul was recently asked to record guitars for the latest single for US teen super-group Why Don't We.

Brought in by good friend and perpetual chart botherer (and one half of Blonde), Jacob Manson, Paul multi-tracked acoustic guitars for Hooked which debuted at #4 on the US Top40 chart this week.

Jacob has also written and produced for the likes of Anne Marie, Ed Sheeran, Craig David, The Vamps, Ella Eyre, Rudimental and Josef Salvat and this is his first collaboration with Why Don't We - a band signed with Time Warner and who have nearly 3 million Instagram followers.

Mixed by Manny Marroquin, the track to date has racked up a combined 8 million streams on Spotify and YouTube in the first week and charted in more than a dozen countries worldwide including the UK, Germany, Brazil and Australia.

Check out the official video below, complete with 40ft Octopus, directed by Eli Sokhn.
