Watch the architects play Animals with an orchestra at Abbey Road Studios – Kerrang!
The architects have teamed up with Amazon Music to share a new orchestral version of their 2020 animals alone.
Brighton Steelworkers recorded the render at Abbey Road Studios with absolutely stunning effect, thrilling the project, “It was an incredible opportunity to completely reinvent Animals. We took the shredded synths out, replaced them with an orchestra and recorded it in the famous Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios. The result is unlike anything we’ve done before. We hope you enjoy it.

Talk to Kerrang! earlier this year on the creative process behind Animals, explained Dan Searle, “Sometimes it’s good to recognize when something happens quickly, creatively, especially when it’s a track that ends up being the first single from an album. It literally came together in a matter of days, with Sam [Carter] and I send it from Bali to Josh [Middleton] in the UK, adding bits while he was sleeping, and adding bits to him while we were sleeping.
“I remember when we were done singing we hit play and I knew right away that we had something special and that would be the lead single. It all fit together so perfectly from scratch, so quickly. My God, if we could always be this fast we would have so much free time!
