The Struts have shared their sultry new song “Low Key In Love” featuring Paris Jackson.
Produced by Tommy English, the song features frontman Luke Spiller and Jackson exchanging soulful vocals for a rousing duet. Spiller and Jackson have great chemistry and hearing Jackson sing, it’s clear she’s inherited her father’s talent. Featuring the band’s groovy glam rock sound and a dreamy, mellow vibe it’s another banger from The Struts.
“‘Low Key In Love’ was written after a date in Los Angeles at 70’s retro bar, Good Times at Davey Wayne’s,” says Spiller. “I walked into the studio explaining that we needed the song to have the essence you feel when entering the bar and absorb the vibe. When we decided to explore the idea of a duet, I thought back to that night and remembered that Paris played a brilliant acoustic set.
Spiller continues: “Something inside was telling me that everything happened for a reason, so I decided to message her. I’m convinced some things are just written in the stars. Bringing in Paris just gave the song a whole new dimension and really brings the story to life. She is beautiful and brilliant. A star.”
“I first heard of The Struts when I went to go see Mötley Crüe play their final set on New Year’s Eve night at Staples Center a few years ago. The boys opened up for them and I had no idea it was going to be as incredible as it was,” says Jackson. “I just remember turning to my friend and saying ‘who the fuck ARE these guys!?’ I was so blown away by their talent, their stage presence, and their energy. It felt like I had time traveled and got to experience what rock’n’roll was at its prime, like with the Rolling Stones and Queen.
“I started listening to their music and would see them at events here and there, and we’ve always been pretty friendly online. When Luke asked to work with me, it was an immediate yes. It’s been a privilege and an honor to sing on a song that I know means so much to Luke, and I’m grateful for the friendship that has sprung from such a lovely project. It’s unlike anything I have ever done or thought to do before, and I’m here for it.”
