Production library track a hit on The Voice
Press release from Big Bang & Fuzz
This week millions of Australians saw Brittany Cairns, 19 from Sydney, perform in the live rounds of Channel Nine’s juggernaut The Voice. Brittany and her superstar coach Keith Urban, chose "Different Worlds", originally used as a production music track in promos for the show. It was a surprising move given she was up against songs originally performed by artists from the likes of Jason Derulo, Gotye, David Guetta and Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and Ed Sheeran.
Brittany Cairns' version of “Different Worlds” hit #1 on the Australian iTunes charts and propelled Jes Hudak’s original version to #8.
The track originally entered the ARIA charts when public demand was sparked by its use in Channel Nine’s promos for The Voice. Production music is not usually made available for sale to the public but the interest prompted Big Bang & Fuzz to make the track available for download through iTunes. They are glad they did because “Different Worlds”, upon first release, debuted as the highest new entry on the ARIA charts.
The original track, featuring Jes Hudak on vocals, was produced and recorded by Selectracks in Los Angeles and is distributed in Australia by Big Bang & Fuzz.
Kerrie-Ann Sharpe from Big Bang & Fuzz says: “Obviously we believe in the quality of our production music and we work with a talented range of real deal artists, but none of us thought we would see two versions of a production music track shoot up the charts like this.”
“Different Worlds” was originally sourced from the “Singer Songwriter 4” album, which is part of the Selectracks ‘Song Catalog’ series. This label, one of several in the BBF range featuring indie bands, artists & singer-songwriters, covers styles including indie rock, alt-rock, big band, modern & classic soul, pop and hip-hop. For maximum production flexibility, most tracks are available in vocal and instrumental versions, with all tracks available for quick & easy licensing at regular production music rates.
