Metronomy have announced “Small World” (Special Edition) due 29th November via Because Music. The first taste of the repackaged album is Katy J Pearson’s version of “Small World” standout track ‘Love Factory’.

Katy J Pearson’s reimagining of ‘Love Factory’ is a duet with Metronomy frontman Joe Mount that swaps the glorious groove of the original for her wistful Americana-tinged rock, while retaining all of its irresistible charm. The track is accompanied by a nostalgic video that stars Katy and Joe channelling iconic country performances of the ‘60s and ‘70s, framed against the distinct landscapes of Devon.

Katy shares: “I’ve been a huge fan of Metronomy for a long time. The records they made had a big influence on my music. I have fond memories of travelling up to Bristol to watch them play in when I was a teenager and the shows being so joyous. Brilliantly intelligent pop music. I met Joe after their show in Bristol and we got chatting. After this encounter I got asked to rework “Love Factory” for the special edition of their album “Small World”. I was so excited as “Love Factory” is my favourite song from the new record.

It’s so beautiful! So I was very flattered and honoured to have the chance to put my own spin on it. I wanted to strip it down to basics and make it a vulnerable duet. I’d been listening to a lot of Nancy Lee & Lee Hazelwood at the time so making it a pop duet felt really fun to do.”
