British glam rockers The Struts have joined forces with acclaimed singer-songwriter Paris Jackson in groovy new duet ‘Low Key in Love’.

The soulful exchange between Jackson and the band’s frontman Luke Spiller is fuelled by their chemistry and is everything you could ask for in an iconic rock-and-roll duet.

The smooth new track, produced with Tommy English, is the latest material from the band since their third full-length album ‘Strange Days’ which was released last year.

‘Low Key in Love’ finds the pair telling their tales of a tequila-soaked night and channelling the sweet frustration of attempting to hide your feelings from somebody.

The nostalgic funk-inspired sound of the duet allows Spiller’s signature distinct gritty vocals to shine through and perfectly contrast Jackson’s airy yet powerful tones.

Speaking about the track, Spiller said: “‘Low Key in Love’ was written after a date in Los Angeles at a 70’s retro bar, Good Times at Davey Wayne’s.

“I walked into the studio explaining that we needed the song to have the essence you feel when entering the bar and absorb the vibe.

“When we decided to explore the idea of a duet, I thought back to that night and remembered that Paris played a brilliant acoustic set.

“Something inside was telling me that everything happened for a reason, so I decided to message her.

“Bringing Paris in just gave the song a whole new dimension and really brings the story to life.”

With its catchy backdrop of golden guitar tones and low-slung grooves, the song is the perfect blend of 70s and 80s pop with a very modern approach to it and is accompanied by a bubblegum retro music video.

Directed by Bryson Roatch, the video features Spiller and Jackson dressed in pastels singing into condenser microphones whilst a couple, who are keeping their love low-key, dance through a house in between clips.

Full of signature electric guitars that are reminiscent of rock bands from decades ago, the retro groovy tune shows The Struts returning to their glam rock roots with indomitable energy and ambition.
