Audio: Kameron Corvet - Who Hurt Who?

Kameron Corvet emerges from 'Kathy's Basement' with new single "Who Hurt Who?".

The single "Who Hurt Who?", written and produced by Kameron Corvet, is the first song he has released since his 'Kathy's Basement' EP (2020). Written, arranged, and produced by Corvet, "'Who Hurt Who?' is an ode to the classic post break-up songs of the 60s and 70s. Rooted in guitars and Corvet's signature vocal blend of falsetto and natural melodies, he uses his Grammy Award-winning songwriting to address failed relationships from the man's perspective. 'Who Hurt Who?' is somewhat autobiographical and yet also inspired by conversations I've had, stories I've heard, and even from watching very public celebrity breakups," shares Corvet. "Many times when a relationship ends, the explanation behind the breakup comes from the woman. 'Who Hurt Who' asks the question, who really hurt who? There's a perception that men aren't affected at all when a relationship falls apart. Hopefully the song helps to open up conversations about the importance hearing both sides before picking one.”

"I don't know, I don't know what you told your friends / Did you really, did you tell the truth about, who hurt who / And now if we go, if we go, if we go again / Would you really, would you tell the truth about 'Who Hurt Who?'"

With Corvet serving in the role of producer as well, "Who Hurt Who?" musically boasts all organic instrumentation from trumpets, Fender Rhodes, organ, drums and bass recorded in various cities in the U.S. and Europe. "For a lot of musicians and others in the performing arts, the pandemic brought about an opportunity to use technology in ways we hadn't before. Recording live instruments has always been something I've traditionally done in a room with my fellow musicians. That's what makes the recording of 'Who Hurt Who?' so special. I hand-selected all the musicians and for the most part we all recorded remotely: the drums were recorded in Nashville, the horns in the Netherlands, the bass in Los Angeles, and the rest of the parts including my vocals were all recorded in Atlanta. Listening to the final version, it sounds as though we were in-studio and in-person. It's a testament to the relatability of the song, the importance of selecting the right musicians, and using the right technology." This, in conjunction with the lyric/melody composition make for a sound that's both bluesy and soulful in nature without compromising the essence of the message.

While Corvet conveys the storyline through the music, he shared his concept for the single artwork with illustrator, Oliver Banks, and together the collaborated on the artwork. "When I started conceptualizing the artwork, I knew that I wanted it to symbolically represent me in several ways," shares Corvet. "I wanted the artwork to give me the feeling of a forgotten Royal from the 17th century. The Krimson and Kreme represents my membership in Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. The purple heart is an homage to one of my favorite artists of all time, Prince, and is in-line with being hurt in battle. In this case, the battle is a relationship or love in general. There's more to the artwork and I'm interested in hearing people's interpretation of all the symbolism."
