Jann Klose teams up with Karen Zoid on his latest single “Pour The Champagne” taken from his current studio album “In Tandem”.
US-based Jann Klose met local singing sensation Karen Zoid at a BMI songwriters camp in Cape Town back in 2016. Both looked forward to writing together and came up with “Pour The Champagne” on the final day of the camp.
When asked if writing together came easy, Jann replies: “It did… eventually! We had a rough start to the day, I remember. Then all of a sudden I had this chorus melody and hook and it came together really fast. RJ (Benjamin) being around and available was a huge help in us getting to the point of finishing the song and getting a good demo recording of it done the same day.”
Listening to the single, “Pour The Champagne” grabs the attention from the first verse, lifting the euphoria levels with a happy bubbly feel and theme. “We wanted to write about embracing the moment and not worrying about the future. Yes, it’s something we all do to some extent but I think we both felt that writing about this subject would give some comfort and joy to us, and hopefully to those listening.”
When it came time to record the album, adding “Pour The Champagne” was an obvious choice to include for Jann. “Everyone loved the tune. When I asked Karen to come on board and sing on the track as well it was clear that it would be included on the album. She recorded her vocal at ASE Cape Town while RJ and I were working on the basic tracks for the song in Johannesburg. It was pretty cool to see it come together.”
Grab your bottle and pop the cork, it’s time to “Pour The Champagne” and dance into the weekend with Jann Klose and Karen Zoid.
