PG Tips is marking the Coronation with a new tea-based version of the National Anthem.
Working with Smoking Gun, the new track has been created entirely with the sounds of making a cuppa.
Award-winning music producer, Tarek Musa, was tasked with brewing up.
“You can find inspiration in the most everyday of sounds so when PG Tips approached me for this new take on God Save the King, I jumped at the chance,” he said.
“It was a fun challenge, to rethink the sounds of making a cuppa in a musical way. I found myself obsessing over the whistling of the kettle, recording it and pitching it to match the notes in the melody of God Save the King. Once the main melody was in place, it was important to represent the triumphant crescendos in the music, using a climax of boiling kettles, tinkling of spoons, sounds of water pouring into the mug and the splash of the milk. Experimenting with how we capture and use audio has always excited me, and working with PG Tips on this was an absolute pleasure. Of course, the refreshing taste of PG Tips sustained me throughout the making of the track.”
