Timbaland headlines with U.S. Country Singer, Michelle Branch at ‘MINI Countryman Open Air’.

Jun 10, 2010

London, UK. Last night, against the back-drop of the metropolis’ skyline and in amongst the green fields of Mudchute Farm in London, celebrations for the launch of the new MINI Countryman culminated in world-exclusive performances by megastar producer, Timbaland and U.S. country singer Michelle Branch at the ‘MINI Countryman Open Air’ event. Their single ‘Getaway’ – which received its first-ever live outing in front of a 500-strong audience including Eva Herzigova, Cat Deeley, Margherita Missoni, Jade Parfitt, Poppy Delevigne, Donna Air, Henry Holland, Jasmine Guinness, Tyrone Woods, Ben Grimes, Jack Kidd, Ozwald Boateng and Hofit Golan - is set to be released this summer by Warner Music.

The collaboration between one of the world’s most prolific artist/producers and a U.S. country singer songwriter merged the ‘URBAN meets COUNTRY’ themes associated with the new MINI Countryman. From on-site graffiti artists to VIP guests wandering around in wellies and Henry Holland “House of Holland” T-shirt-clad crew, the ‘MINI Countryman Open Air’ fully lived up to the brand’s quirky spirit. Warm-up acts came in the form of ‘folktronica’ musician James Yuil and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard spinning the wheels for the lively crowd before George Lamb brought on-stage Michelle Branch for her showcase of stellar pop-tinged modern country. As well as the exclusive MINI Countryman song ‘Getaway’ making its world debut in London, the MINI Countryman also had a starring role in the world exclusive preview for the track’s music video.
