Exclusive: Palace midfielder poised to release first music single
Friday, 22 January 2010
BUDDING musician Neil Danns is set to release his first single in the next month - which could make him a hit both on and off the pitch.
The Crystal Palace midfielder is currently studying a video editing and production course at the London Academy of Media, Film and TV.
Danns has always had a passion for music. But what was once a hobby is now turning into a serious project which he feels can run alongside his playing career.
The 27-year-old already has a MySpace music section on the internet where he is singing covers of songs by Kings Of Leon and Beyonce - with team-mates Calvin Andrew and Ryan Smith guesting on other tracks.
But Danns is about to take an even bigger step when he releases his first single Survive, which he has written himself and performs with Liverpudlian rapper Kof.
“We’ve filmed the video and the song should be out in the next five weeks,” said the Toxteth-raised goal-getter. “It is saying we don’t know how the world is going to survive with the war, recession and poverty.
“Ever since I was young I’ve written my own little bits of music and I come from a musical family.
“My dad sang in the Eurovision Song Contest - which I think he gets a bit embarrassed about - and my uncle played in one of the first black British bands around the Liverpool scene in the 1970s."
