DANIEL DE BLANKE: In the Studio and On stage with the Gray Kid

ROBOTANISTS’ Daniel de Blanke was recently invited by SPIRIT ANIMAL‘s Steve Cooper (aka Gray Kid) to join him in the studio to lay down some guitar tracks for the new SPIRIT ANIMAL album.

De Blanke joined the group at Danny Kalb’s Cowl Studio in Los Angeles to record. Kalb, who also worked on the Gray Kid’s “Free Music” EP, has worked with numerous legendary artists, some of which include, Beck, Ben Harper, Rilo Kiley, Jack Johnson, Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Neon Neon, and more! SPIRIT ANIMAL’s debut album is being mixed and mastered now – the release date will be announced soon, so stay tuned!

“While celebrating the release of “Free Music EP”, the artist formerly known as the Gray Kid covers Genuwine’s 1993 single for an X-rated space-age come-on. “If you’re horny, let’s do it / Ride it, my pony” sounds even sleazier here, as the mere notion mines dangerous lust rather than the middle school exploration of the original”
