Pupils from Spooner Row Primary School, in Wymondham, are venturing into the music industry by singing backing vocals on Steve Harley's latest single.

Best known for his work with Cockney Rebel, Steve's new single - 2,000 Years From Now - was recorded at Leeders Farm Studio in the town.

"It's fantastic. We had a really good time - they worked very hard and picked it up so quickly," said Steve.

The is taken from Steve's current album Stranger Comes to Town.

The album was also recorded at Leeders Farm Studio, which is owned by Dan Hawkins - the former member of Lowestoft band The Darkness and current guitarist with Stone Gods.

"We all came up here to Leeders Farm and stayed for three or four weeks to make the album. It's a major studio," said Steve.

The inclusion of the local children, aged 10 - 11, was a last minute decision and luckily, the proximity of Spooner Row Primary meant that they were more than happy to help.

"I'd almost finished this track and I said to my engineer, 'There's a primary school down the road isn't there, I'd like some school kids on this track because the lyric is about the future of the planet'," said Steve.

"Three hours later they were all here and two hours later we'd done it," he added.

The single 2,000 Years From Now is available for download now.
