Karmin Teamed Up with Berklee Students to Rearrange a New Single
Before becoming husband-and-wife pop music duo Karmin, Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan were just two kids at Berklee. They met at a party in 2006 and graduated in 2008, a few years before starting to gain popularity for their hip-hop covers on YouTube.
Now, the duo is set to release a second full-length album, titled Leo Rising, in the fall. It’s their first fully-independent release since parting with Epic Records last year. A first single, called “Didn’t Know You,” came out in June, alongside a Western-style music video.
Earlier this summer, while in town to open for violinist Lindsey Stirling at Blue Hills Bank Pavilion, Heidemann and Noonan returned to their alma mater in Boston to work on a new arrangement for “Didn’t Know You.”
The rearrangement, which features expanded instrumentals and vocals, was written entirely by Berklee students and a few recent alumni. It was recorded at the Q Division Studios in Somerville.
You can watch the music video, which was filmed by a Berklee alumnus and released by the school yesterday, below:
