The mighty Puppy return with a brand new single and video ‘The Kiss,’ released through Rude Records. Its release follows a world-exclusive first play last night with the Radio 1 Rock Show, presented by Daniel P Carter.
Written and produced by the band, singer/guitarist Jock Norton explains a little bit about the song: “‘The Kiss’ actually and came out of songwriting sessions for our first album ‘The Goat.’ For whatever reason, it was left by the wayside, but when we started recording new material across the last year or so we decided to try laying down a proper version of it just to see how it would sound (and because we were too lazy to come up with any new songs). What we ended up with sounded way better than the acoustic version Billy had on his phone from 4 years ago, so at a vote of 2 to 1 (sorry Bill) we decided to release the new one. We hope you enjoy it”.
Explaining a bit about the wonderful video for ‘The Kiss,’ drummer Billy Howard says: “We teamed up with Jacek Smarz, a mysterious and enigmatic long term friend of the band, who created the batshit animations that serve as a pretty good visual representation of where our heads were at when we were recording the music. It’s the first time we’ve shared creative duties on a video with someone not in the band, and we are shocked and horrified to find the amazing difference it makes when you hand over control to someone who actually knows what they’re doing.”
