20 February 2010

Ahead of their debut album hitting the shops in early summer 2010, Captain Kennedy will be releasing a download only, double A-side of Stretch That Penny / Sweetest Friend. The single will be available for download from iTunes, Amazon and other online retailers from 5th April 2010.

Stretch That Penny, powered by fiddle and gin-soaked piano, has already been featured as part of the BBC’s Raw Money campaign, providing sound advice for hard times.

Sweetest Friend, often regarded as the band’s signature tune and a firm favourite with Captain Kennedy fans, has been given a new lease of life with this release. Often described as a heartfelt and poignant ballad, Ciaran Lavery’s gravel infused vocals ensure the song keeps its rawness and spontaneity.
