David Gray will release a brand new version of ‘Snow In Vegas’ (streaming here) through iht Records and Kobalt Label Services on February 23. Taken from Gray’s critically acclaimed tenth studio album Mutineers, the single release features the multi-Grammy Award winning singer LeAnn Rimes joining Gray on vocals. The track is the third single to be released from Mutineers, following the Radio 2 play-listed singles ‘Birds Of The High Artic’ and ‘Back In The World’, sell-out tours on both sides of the Atlantic, and recent headline dates at the iTunes Festival and Mencap Little Noise Sessions.

Gray’s collaboration with Rimes sprung from a chance meeting during his recent sell-out American tour; “When I recorded ‘Snow In Vegas’ someone suggested that it would work really well as a duet,” Gray says. “The idea stuck in my mind, so when I met Leann backstage at a show in Phoenix and the song came up in conversation, I mentioned it to her. To my amazement she then called it up on her phone, pressed play and sang along in perfect harmony. When I said something to the effect of ‘Wow, you nailed it!’, she then suggested that she would love to come up on stage and sing it ‘live’ during the show, which she duly did and proceeded to blow me away all over again.

The girl can really sing! Everyone remembers Leann as this young kid who notched up all these huge hits however many years ago. But what a lot of people seem to have forgotten is just what an incredible voice she has. A voice that if anything, has only grown stronger over the intervening years.”

Says LeAnn, “Being invited by David to add my voice to “Snow in Vegas” is an absolute dream come true. David’s an inspiring musician vocalist songwriter and performer who has a way with words and melodies like no other. I have been a fan of his story telling and soulful voice for as long as I can remember.”

David Gray captured the world’s attention with his breakout multi-platinum hit White Ladder, the album went on to sell seven million copes and was the first of three No.1 UK albums, earning him both Brit and Grammy nominations. He has continued to build on this success, with recent albums Draw The Line (2009) and Foundling (2010), both reaching the Billboard Top 10 in the US
