We’ve featured Gabby and her ‘Animals’ several times but couldn’t resist doing so again, partly because this time there’s double Kentish love with NW5-dweller Gabby Young crooning on the perennially lovely Hampstead Heath.

‘Walk Away’ is classic Gabby: big voice, big sounds, exuberantly heart-felt, bursting with old world charm yet simultaneously truly avant-garde. With slinky brass accompaniment, she sings a tribute to her father, who – in what we imagine must be his debut filmed performance – stars alongside his talented daughter.

Oh, and the Kenwood lovers amongst you might recognise the sheltered bench (and we do love a bench), located a little south of the Sunday strollers’ favourite stately home. It dates back to 1952, honouring Sir Lawrence Wensley Chubb (what a name!) who’s behind the survival of many of our green spaces.

‘Walk Away’ is to be released next month. Meanwhile K-Town’s scarlet-haired songstress is currently on tour in Europe, but catch her when she hops back over the channel to Camden’s KOKO on October 17.

Which is actually quite soon when you think about it. My goodness, where’s this year gone?
