Melbourne’s Ceres are about to support The Smith Street Band on their album tour throughout May and June around the country.

To co-incide with the tour, the band has released a brand new single, ‘Stretch Ur Skin‘ featuring Wil from The Smith Street Band. The track is taken from an exclusive limited edition 7″ also titled ‘Stretch Ur Skin‘.

The 7″ vinyl will only be made available at these upcoming shows. It features 3 tracks, two of the songs were recorded as part of the ‘Drag It Down On You‘ sessions last year.

Tom Lanyon talks about the single;

Stretch Ur Skin is almost a Roll Ur Eyes Part II. But probably not. It’s about not being someone you’re not. Or something like that. Bits of the song had been lying around for an eternity; it wasn’t until realising a companion piece for Drag It Down On You was an inevitability, did things start to crystallise in my mind. Getting the chance to work with Wil, a good friend (and not-so-small inspiration) on the song, was also quite the trip. We wanted the work to be truly collaborative, not just a guest vocal—so we wrote and re-wrote the song, together and separately to craft something we were both proud to be a part of. Did we get there? Who knows. But it is Wil’s favourite Ceres song supposedly. A little convenient, don’t you think?

While Wagner adds,

When Tom first asked me to collaborate with Ceres I was really excited. Not just because I would get to make music with a band I love but because it’s always so fun getting to hang out with these guys. We sent some ideas back and forth and both wrote and re wrote our parts and then went to Sing Sing South one night to piece our ideas together. It all fell into place very naturally and organically and I couldn’t happier with the end result! The entire band kills it on this song, the drum and bass groove at the start is a cool departure from classic Ceres stuff and Sean’s guitar solo absolutely rips. I’m very flattered to be involved and stoked on how this song turned out!
