Cass Hopetoun and Blake Dantier both released debut albums in 2022, Hopetoun with Not Your Typical Bride and Dantier with Dry Season, and both found themselves nominated for the 2023 Golden Guitar for New Talent of the Year. In the past year they also got married and became parents, so there’s been a lot going on.
While it may seem natural for the pair to record together, they’ve only now released their first duet, ‘Some Things Never Get Old’. It was produced by Dantier and Simon Johnson, who worked together on Dry Season, and mixed by Matt Fell, who produced Not Your Typical Bride. It’s a dream team for a song that’s all about appreciating moments and memories.
We spoke recently about ‘Some Things Never Get Old’ as well as songwriting process and those competing Golden Guitar nominations. You can watch our chat on YouTube (below), or listen in Soundcloud (below) or on the podcast.
