    Anyone can put a cowboy hat on -- and if you love country music enough to do it, then God bless ya. But it?s another thing to exude country from every fiber of your being, from the blood in your veins to the dirt under your fingernails. When you listen to Kendall Shaffer, the difference can?t be ignored. His 2018 EP The Traditional Revival opens with a sample of Ed Bruce?s 1976 classic ?Mammas Don?t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys.? Clearly, the sample seems to declare, you?re about to listen to the work of an artist who appreciates a vintage country sound. But When Kendall and his band kick in with ?Honky Tonkin? (Whoever Said It Was Easy),? it becomes strikingly apparent that he isn?t stuck on getting to the heart and soul of country by trying to make his music sound like it was made half a century ago. That?s because he doesn?t have to put on airs. Kendall?s songs sparkle with a decidedly modern edge and yet they still manage to cut through the homogenization.

BEC LAVELLE  I´m happier (S)
“I’m Happier” is the next single lifted from Bec Lavelle’s highly anticipated new album due for release in August and comes hot on the heels of her isolation collaboration and Top 10 smash, “Nervous Girls”.

Bec says, “I’m Happier” is about the feeling you get after a relationship breakdown. “There’s a moment in time when you wake up and it doesn’t hurt anymore! You open your heart and mind up to positivity and of the hope the future outweighs the pain of the past. This song is that moment in time”.

“I’m Happier” came from a week-long writing and recording session with her German collaborator, Andrei Vesa. “Another track that I’ve had the pleasure of creating with Andrei … when we close ourselves in a studio together – magic happens”.

Paulo Germano who has been the mixer behind many of Bec’s recent releases once again has given the song his golden touch. “Sometimes you can imagine how a track will sound when it’s finished, and this went above and beyond all of my expectations! Paulo is incredibly talented to bring out what he does in a track”.

“This is one of my proudest moments being able to release this track. It’s nice to be on the other side of heartache and smiling again”, she says. “I hope this track encourages everyone to know that whatever they might be going through right now … it will get better! Time can heal almost anything!”

Nashville rock-star Jaime Kyle has just released her latest single, ‘Grace’, for her fans in the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe.

Now celebrating three decades in the music industry, Jaime Kyle has transcended genres during her musical career, citing influences as diverse as Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt and Bread. She famously co-wrote ‘Wild One’ for Faith Hill, which was the lead single from Hill’s debut album and stayed #1 in the charts for four weeks upon release. Other hits to her credit include ‘Stranded’ for the rock group Heart.

As well as performing regularly at home in Music City USA, Jaime has had a strong following in Europe for many years. She made a welcome return to the UK last year with an appearance at the Ramblin Man Fair Festival in Maidstone, Kent. She hopes to return to Europe, when the world returns to some normality after the COVID-19 crisis.

The new recording ‘Grace’ reveals a more spiritual side to the woman once dubbed ‘The Goddess of Hard Rock’. Co-written with David Jenkins, Jaime not only performs the song but also produced and engineered it herself, reflecting her years of experience behind the microphone as well as in front of it. Reflecting on the song, Jaime said:

“This is a song about peace and forgiveness written from my heart. See if it reaches yours.”

ANDY & RYAN COONEY  We´re all in this together (S)
Irish America’s Favourite Son, Andy Cooney, has just released his new single, paying tribute to all of the key-workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

From Long Island, New York, Andy Cooney has been at the centre of some of the communities worst-affected by the Coronavirus crisis since the outbreak proliferated in March. Joined on the song by his own son Ryan, the pair reflect on the song as being a message of hope to New York, America and the World on the road to recovery from COVID-19.

Penned by Andy and Ryan Cooney, the track was produced by Jeff Teague in Nashville, who has produced in the past for Pam Tillis, Trisha Yearwood, Kenny Rogers and the late Joe Diffie, who passed away in April following complications from COVID-19.

Within his native New York, Andy has filled out the prestigious Carnegie Hall on eight different occasions, as well as having appeared at the Lincoln Centre. Nevertheless, he has remained loyal to his Irish heritage and culture which features heavily in his live performances, leading to him being dubbed “Irish America’s Favourite Son” by The New York Times.

Through a number of foreign travel trips, Andy has been strongly involved with connecting Irish emigrant communities around the world with their native Ireland. His ‘Cruise of Irish Stars’ trip regularly sells out and features some of the top stars from Ireland as well as the USA. He is due to charter a ten-day trip to Ireland and Liverpool in September, although this is still dependent on travel restrictions being lifted by that time. Reflecting on the song, Andy said: “We wrote this song to convey to the listeners we need to look out for each other and show our love and compassion, as we find a way to get through this. This song goes out to all nurses, doctors, first responders and to this pandemic. As the song says: "we know that it won't last forever, if we're all in this together.”

SERPENT OMEGA  Land of darkness (S)
Serpent Omega blandar sludge, doom, metal och crust till en egensinnig och makaber sörja. Det första självbetitlade albumet sålde slut på några månader 2013 och nu, sju år efter debuten, släpper den Stockholmsbaserade kvartetten äntligen uppföljaren ”II”.

Döds/doom-singeln ”Land of Darkness” är den andra singeln som släpps och är en uppvisning av sångerskans Urskogrs raspiga och gutturala sång, smutsigare än någonsin men samtidigt lugnad av 'rena' passager och lyfter fram element av både styrka och sårbarhet som bara fördjupar den övergripande känslan av ett hotande slut. Urskogr från bandet förklarar: ”Videon till Land of Darkness känns som en naturlig förlängning av låten. Visuellt är det en dyster upplevelse, där jag gör en hyllning till dödsgudinnan Hel förstärkt av bandets energi. Uppsättningen påminner om våra liveuppträdanden, med dödskallar, ben, horn och fjädrar som bildar en undertexts antydan till animism, förstörelse, död, forntida ritualer och mytologiska väsen. Symbolerna, både dolda och uppenbara, kopplar till sångtexterna och kallar på den länge glömda kraften som gömmer sig i mörkret och väntar på att bli väckt.” // Urskogr (Serpent Omega).

Serpent Omega har nyligen bytt trummis och bakom trummorna på ”II” finns den legendariske Peter Stjärnvind, a.k.a. Fast Feet Pete (från Entombed, Nifelheim, Merciless, Unanimated, Murder Squad, VOJD - för att nämna några). De andra medlemmarna tillhör den ursprungliga lineupen och består av; Urskogr - Sång, Brief – Elektrisk bas, Jonsson - Elektriska gitarrer

Med varje låt slåss Hannah Aldridge mot demoner från ett liv en gång fyllt av substansmissbruk, kraschade relationer och ärr från att pryglas av bibelbältet. Uppvuxen i den extremt religiösa staten Alabama har Hannah sedan unga år känt en dragkraft till det mörker som cirkulerar Southern Gothic genren, och utvecklat en förkärlek till att skriva musik med element av skräck och mörka tankar om depression och hopplöshet. Artisten har funnit sitt kall I att utforska och exploatera dessa tunga ämnen och impulser som vi alla har erfarenhet av, men vanligtvis inte vill prata om. Hannah förklarar, “Djävulen och mörkret har alltid varit monster under sängen för mig, och är det egentligen fortfarande. Så de ämnena har naturligt vävt sig in i många av mina låtar. Jag tycker det är intressant och kul att sitta och tänka mig in i en specifik scen från en film eller ett ämne som skrämmer mig, och skriva en låt som passar och uttrycker de känslorna.”

Som ett första smakprov på det kommande live-albumet ‘Live in Black and White’ släpper hon nu singeln ‘Howlin' Bones’, en skitig och rå liveinspelning av en låt född ur frustration och ilska. Hannah berättar hur låten kom till; "Det här var en sån låt som kom till mig direkt. Jag kämpade med en person i mitt liv som jag hamnade i många bråk med och skrev denna låt för att försöka få ut ilskan ur mitt system, så jag kunde gå vidare på ett bra sätt. Lyckligtvis kan jag säga att saker tillslut löste sig och jag fick några bra låtar ut av den erfarenheten."

Hannah är inte enbart en dotter av den Amerikanska södern utan även till Muscle Shoal legenden Walt Aldridge. Hon började sin karriär 2014 med ‘Razor Wire’ i vilken hon jobbade med Jason Isbell (The 400 Unit) och spelade in en av hans låtar på albumet tillsammans med Brad Pemberton (Ryan Adams and the Cardinals). Debutalbumet drog till sig uppmäksamhet från musikkritiker och ledde till en turné världen över, och live-scenen tog till sig Hannah med öppna armar från dag ett. Under de gångna 7 åren har sångerskan spelat live i över 10 olika länder på festivaler, som support-akt och egna turnéer. Hennes andra fullängdare ‘Gold Rush’ gästades av Sadler Vaden (Drivin n’ Cryin’) spelandes på Jason Isbells gitarr. Albumet spelades in och mixades av Allen Parker, huvudtekniker för Dan Auerbach från The Black Keys.

Hannah mixar sitt privatliv med arvet från sin hemstad och tar inspiration från hela det breda rock genre spektrat. Genom att jobba med en fot i country-musik och den andra rotad i rocken, har hon skapat ett eget southern rock-sound, präglat av southern-gothic sagoberättande (storytelling). Den ofiltrerade ärlighet hon etsar in i varje låt möter motstånd i hennes envisa och nästintill trotsiga natur, och ger ett hoppfullt glimmer till hennes musik.

Hannah Aldridge vill rädda oss från mörkret på den nya singeln Save Yourself, släppt idag 4 juli via Icons Creating Evil Art worldwide

CAMERON DADDO  Son and Moon (S)
Following the recent release of the single “Son And Moon” - singer songwriter Cameron Daddo releases his EP (Extended Play) also titled ‘Son And Moon’. The EP contains four original songs plus a cover of favourite Johnny Nash classic “I Can See Clearly”.

Back in early 2019 Cameron was paired with producer Michael Carpenter to record his contribution to the …ISH REIMAGINED album project – “To Love Me”. The pair clicked and vowed to work together on new material.

Whilst Cameron handled the acoustic guitar, some rhythm electric and harmonica… Michael played everything else… recorded/produced and even shot the video. “He’s a Gem!” said Cameron. “…and this is a tribute to his expertise. I am so grateful”.

Son and Moon: A song about how we can connect with others separated by distance… having an object we can both look at from either sides of the world. the ever changing moon is metaphor for our ever changing lives.

CORRODED släpper tre tunga nya remixer den här sommaren. Det här är tuffare och hårdare än det CORRODED vi är vana vid, men alla fans kommer bli glada att höra att de melodiska partierna som får dig att fastna är kvar. Det är brutalt, ärligt, melodiskt men också edgy."Det är CORRODED och det är BITTERT! "

Det svenska hårdrockbandet CORRODED, som har toppat de svenska listorna och vars musik är älskad av fans över hela världen har precis som alla artister där ute behövt avbryta alla sina liveplaner den här sommaren. Förra året släppte de sitt femte studioalbum "Bitter", turnerade i Europa och avslutade året med en liten förändring i line-up (långvarige medlemmen Tomas Andersson lämnade bandet).

Nu med utgivandet av tre remixer i sommar vill de påminna oss om Bitter-albumet från förra året och också låt oss veta att de arbetar hårt i karantänen med att skriva nytt material och planerar att gå in i studion snart igen.

Counterstrike: Taktiska, internationella, sensationella och konfronterande: ingen mörk studie inom basmusiken skulle vara fullständig utan att ägna stor uppmärksamhet åt Counterstrike. De är kända för att blanda genrer och ligga i framkant med sina scénshower, och de respekteras från de djupaste, mörkaste, mest kritiska hörnen av underground-scenen till några av de största namnen och skivbolagen inom elektronisk musik

Dila Stellar´s nya singel "Did You Sleep” gick denna vecka in DIREKT som högsta nykomling och HITPICK på den Svenska Danslistans 28:e plats! Hon och hennes producent Niti May ville hitta det där djupa dansbara house-soundet I låten. Nyligen släpptes ytterligare remixar av svenska SoundFactory (Emil Hellman).

Dila Stellar är tydlig med vem hon är som artist. Och med förebilder som Nicki Minaj, Madonna och Lady Gaga borde det vara ett naturligt budskap, men för en ung kvinna i Ryssland är det ingen självklarhet att våga sticka ut. Hon engagerade sig tidigt i klimatfrågor och vikten av en vegansk livsstil. Något som inte heller var så vanligt under Dilas uppväxt i 00-talets Ryssland. På hemmaplan är Dila numera en erkänd artist, låtskrivare och producent. Hon skriver musik både till sig själv och till andra artister, dubbar tecknad film och hon har dessutom släppt musik tillsammans med sin producent Niti May som en del av musikprojektet “Niti feat Dila”. Dila Stellar kontrakterades 2017 av Nexar Music

SOPHIE BOND  Too much to ask (S)
Winsford based singer-songwriter Sophie Bond has just released her new single, ‘Too Much To Ask’. Produced by Tommy Hopkins, in Salt Lake City, Utah, the lead guitarist for the ever popular Donny Osmond, the track is Sophie’s first recording despite being on the road for almost a decade.

Sophie has gained huge attention recently with her lockdown gigs from her back garden - garnering over 400k views on social media. This has gained lots of media attention including BBC radio interviews, appearing on the TV news and being approached by Hollywood actress Amy Adams, to take part in a private Zoom concert for a school in Hollywood, which had 10 other vocalists including Grammy award winning SIA.

Sophie's stunning voice moved thousands of people to tears recently when she sang "You'll Never Walk Alone" outside Leighton Hospital as crowds clapped and cheered the NHS. More than 140,000 people have now watched her tear-jerking performance.

Sophie turned professional when she was only 14 and has been singing since she was eight. After graduating in musical theatre from the University of Central Lancashire, Sophie travelled the world performing on cruise ships and across Texas. In 2011 she wowed all of the judges on ITV's The X Factor (Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Tulisa & Kelly Rowlands) and made it through to the final 16 girls in bootcamp. In her own words, reflecting on the song, Sophie said: “The song came about whilst I was travelling in Dallas, Texas, in November 2019. I had so much passion and emotion after almost quitting my career as a full time singer for what I thought was love. I began writing this song and I felt like 8 year old Sophie Bond had just discovered her voice for the first time! More importantly, I was eager to release a song that was portraying a humourous, fun message that people could relate to. Apologies for taking 10 years to release my own music, I was too busy covering 'Don’t Stop Believing ‘ to Barry and his wife in the local pub!!”

Official release date is July 3rd. But you get it early because you are cool like that.

  1. Wading
  2. Like water

Unga svenska sångerskan Maiah Lay, som debuterat med funkiga "I'm Fallin'" och därefter den sköra "Like Water", är nu tillbaka med sin tredje singel "Wading", där hennes ömsom delikata ömsom riviga röst möter ett retrofärgat och soulmättat ljudlandskap med funkiga basgångar, orgelsolon och bluesiga gitarriff.

"Wading" skrevs av Maiah Lay (privat Maja Hjelm) redan vid 14 års ålder och har idag, 10 år senare, fått nytt liv genom samarbetet med jazzpianisten och producenten Daniel Lantz, som bidragit med ytterligare harmonisk kulör och basriff.

"Wading" målar upp en berättelse om att hitta sig själv i en stormig tillvaro, skildrat genom en text fylld av vattenmetaforer. Maiah Lay backas upp av sitt svängiga liveband på inspelningen. Singeln släpps digitalt på alla plattformar fredagen den 3 juli 2020.
Svenska sångerskan Maiah Lay följer upp sin dansgolvsfunkiga debutsingel "I’m Fallin’" med att gå i en helt annan riktning med singeln "Like Water", en spröd och skör ballad i klassiskt, avskalat format, som släpps fredagen 5 juni. Lays producent Daniel Lantz står återigen för musik och text, och fann inspiration i filmstjärnan och kampsportslegenden Bruce Lees filosofiska citat om att vara anpassningsbar och formbar som vatten:

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” - Bruce Lee.

Men vänt till något negativt beskriver det något tvetydigt och ombytligt. "Like Water" handlar således om att tvivla, men även om insikten att våga lita på sin magkänsla. Texten lyfter fram vatten som metafor för det svårfångade, föränderliga och ständigt rörliga hos en relation som inte tycks veta sin riktning.

Musikaliskt blir det en intim dialog mellan Maiah Lays gyllene röst och Daniel Lantz kristalliska pianospel, med Emeli Jeremias dramatiska cello som understryker känslosvallen. Singeln släpps digitalt på alla plattformar fredagen den 5 juni 2020.

    Texas native, Hayden Baker, has gone from posting cover songs and “how-to” guitar tutorials on YouTube to opening for some of country music’s biggest stars in the span of just a few short years. His style of playing carefully blends the neo-traditional country sound complete with crying steel and soaring fiddle with ripping guitar solos reminiscent of Brad Paisley. Speaking of Brad, he has actually befriended Hayden and re-posted a few of his videos on social media. Hayden even got to step on stage with Brad in Cleveland, OH and jam with his band during soundcheck. In December of 2018, Hayden released his first album entitled Born In The Wrong Generation. The lead track off of that EP, "How Many Beers" was released to radio and made it all the way to #35 on the TRRR chart. His first full length album will be released this fall with a few singles preceding it this summer.

    "Where'd You Go Country Music" is a song originally recorded by my friend Jarrod Birmingham back in 2005. I've always loved it and wanted to cut it. And I believe it is even more relevant today than it was back in 2005. I can't count how many times I've joined Jarrod on stage to do this song in the last several years. But I'm glad I finally got around to recording it on my New "Back To Nashville" EP.

KATIE MELUA  A love like that (S)
Katie Melua släpper ny singel och video - första smakprovet från hennes kommande album. Katie Meluas nya singel “A Love Like That” har en filmisk känsla med en text som utforskar kärleken - här visar Katie att hon har mognat som konstnär och textförfattare. Det är låtskrivande när det är som bäst, med en röst som är i total samklang med både texten och musiken. Singeln är producerad av Leo Abrahams (bl a Jon Hopkins, Regina Spektor, Pulp) som också bidragit till arrangemangen tillsammans med Katies medlåtskrivare Sam Dixon. Mixningen står Cameron Craig och Luke Potaschnick för. Musikerna som medverkar är trummisen Emre Ramazanoglu, flöjtisten Jack Pinter och The Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra.

Videon till “A Love Like That” är den första av en serie videos där Katie har samarbetat med den prisbelönta regissören Charlie Lightening (Paul McCartney, Liam Gallagher, Kasabian) och där skådespelaren Billy Howle (Star Wars, Dunkirk, Outlaw King) medverkar.

“Den här låten ställer den eviga frågan om passion; ‘Hur får du en sådan kärlek att hålla?’ Men innan det blev en text om kärlek mellan två människor så började det med min egen relation till mitt jobb och den uthållighet som krävs för att vara en artist i musikindustrin. Det var först när jag och Sam Dixon avslutat vår låtskrivar-session och jag åkt till en stuga i Cotswold för att jobba med texten som den fick den betydelsen. ‘A Love Like That” har ett narrativ som är genomgående för hela det kommande albumet. Och i kontexten kärlek - så handlar det om att ha modet att prata öppet och fritt.” säger Katie.

“A Love Like That” är det första släppet från Katie Meluas kommande album “Album No. 8” (release 16/10), en skiva som innebär kulmen av en längre period av musikaliskt återupptäckande för 35-åringen. Texterna, som är hennes hitintills mest personliga , visar hur hon försöker förlika sig med den komplexa kärleken jämfört med den vi läser om i sagorna. Katie har också hämtat inspiration från folkmusiken för att, genom vackra stråkarrangemang, väcka en känsla av den där magiska timmen precis när solen går ner. Resultatet har blivit hennes mest sammansatta och övertygande album hittills.

Katie Melua kommer ursprungligen från Tbilisi i Georgien och emigrerade, tillsammans med sin familj, till Belfast när hon var 9 år. Hittills har hon släppt sju studioalbum och är en av Storbritanniens bäst säljande kvinnliga artister genom tiderna

JOHAN PETTERSSON  Time to turn (S)
På lördag 4/7:e släpper Johan Pettersson singeln "Time to Turn". Det är första låten från kommande albumet "For Peace and Quiet" som släpps 11/7:e.

Johan Pettersson (43år) är en musiker i Norrköping, med ursprung från Boxholm. Musiken som soloartist ligger i facket folkrockcountry (med vissa undantag). Han har haft musik ute sedan 2013. Förutom soloprojektet så har Pettersson även komponerat musik till teater och musikal.

"Time to Turn" var tänkt som en arg rocklåt. Texten till verserna kändes för enformig och det adderades några överblivna refrängrader från en i övrigt tom sida i anteckningsboken. "Scream out for peace and quiet". Det blev ingen rocklåt. Istället har vi här en större pianoballad med stråkarrangemang. En uppmaning eller en näve i bordet

With outstanding melodies, atmosphere and every bandmember's unique performance as well as outstanding artwork from renowned artist Chris Cold, these nine epistles embrace the legacy of the 90's and bring the Swedish black metal-sound to a whole new level.

JODI VAUGHAN  I live for today (S)
Jodi Vaughan is excited to announce the release of her new single ‘I Live For Today’. Her new song leaves her previous top #10 single ‘You Look Silly Cryin’ in her wake, as she writes and records prolifically, and lives in the moment.

“I have always been a “My cup’s half FULL“ kind-a-girl. I remember I have always told people, “I don’t have dreams. My dreams are realities that just haven’t happened yet”. I really LIVE by the lyrics of this song and so really love to sing it and hope it resonates with people. I love writing songs that are not just a story but have a message as well. Sometimes people will take more notice of song lyrics rather than listen to someone talk. I think this could be a subliminal message. On this version I have added banjo and dobro, firstly because these are my favourite instruments and secondly they are a true country sound. If I could make it more country I would.”

Jodi Vaughan is Australian by birth, however, she has carved a career as one of New Zealand’s best known and most loved Country Music Artists. Her name became synonymous with New Zealanders on a regular country music TV show, ‘That’s Country’, in the 1980's, when she became a household name. Yet for all of her trips to the USA, and despite Gold Records and Awards, Jodie attended Tamworth Country Music Festival for the first time in 2020 bringing a tour of NZ Country Music Fans to Tamworth, which is happening again in 2021.

Though Jodi has been absent from her homeland's Country Music Scene, the duet Gold Album ‘Fairweather Friends’ did release in Australia in the 1980's.

Her first Australian single release ‘It Ain’t Always Love’ peaked at #14 on the Australian National Airplay Chart & #19 on The Official Tasmanian Country Music Chart making it a top 20 hit! 'You Look Silly Cryin' claimed #6 on the Australian Country Airplay Chart & #19 on the Official Tasmanian & OZCMR Country Chart

CLIFFORD  Bränn en mast (S)
Från labeln som gav oss metal-versionen av Greta Thunbergs FN-tal "How Dare You", och sedan introducerade bandet Clifford med en black metal-hyllning till "Årets svensk"; Sveriges statsepidemiolog Anders Tegnell. De två bröderna Clifford är nu åter tillbaka med den senaste samhällsnyttiga låten ”Bränn En Mast” där artisten kör sin egen samtidsanalys om pandemins fortsatta utveckling och levererar sin version - på hårdrocksvis. De två bröderna förklarar: - "Sedan urminnes tider har människor hittat på alla möjliga galenskaper för att förklara det oförklarliga. Men sanningen är svår att urskilja på denna, vår platta jord. Vi som vet bättre dricker vårt kolloidala silver, aktar oss för currykors och har slagrutan tillhands när vi behöver skölja ner bittra sanningar med några klunkar välvirvlat vatten. Mums! Med låten Bränn En Mast vill vi lyfta en ny och obehaglig sanning. 5G-masterna tar våra liv!? Ta på foliehatten och ge er ut i protest mot dessa radiovågor som slår ut vår naturliga balans. Bränn en mast!"

Efter släppet av 'All makt åt Tegnell' förra månaden fullständigt exploderade singel organiskt med över 15 000 visningar på Youtube, omdiskuterad och spelad i nationell radio på P3 Morgonpasset och spridd av Sveriges största musiktidning GAFFA. Tack vare framgången så landade bröderna ett skivkontrakt med Despotz Records.

DON MESCALL  Sunshine girl (S)
International singer-songwriter Don Mescall has just released his brand new Summer single, ‘Sunshine Girl’.

Don recounts writing ‘Sunshine Girl’ for his beautiful daughter Eve some years ago, but only recently rediscovered the song whilst going through his back-catalogue during lockdown. The song, recorded and produced by Doug Lancio in Nashville, is a vibrant Summer song with shades of Pop, Indie and Contemporary Country that will suit a range of tastes. It’s a song that will make the perfect soundtrack for days at the beach, barbeques and summer nights, as the world starts to return to some normality. The launch of the new single follows tremendous success in Canada earlier this month, after CMA Award winning artist Laurie LeBlanc featured six Don Mescall tracks on his new album, ‘When It’s Right, It’s Right’. The debut single ‘The Bigger The Better’, which featured Don on the track and the video, made the top five most played country songs in Canada earlier this year.

LeBlanc joins a whole host of International artists that have had success from Don Mescall’s tracks through the years, from Rascal Flatts and Lonestar, to Cliff Richard and Backstreet Boys. Closer to home, Don’s songs have also been recorded by Irish artists including Ronan Keating, Sharon Corr, Aslan, Eleanor Shanley, Brian Kennedy, Frances Black and The High Kings. Don is also in the process of working on his next studio album, ‘Seven Setting Suns’ which is planned for release in early 2021.

Anticipating the release of ‘Sunshine Girl’, Don said: “Delighted to finally release ‘Sunshine Girl’ written for my own sunshine girl, my Daughter Eve! I’ve been fortunate to spend lots of time with her since the Lockdown began. She’s really helped me through this challenging time.”

EFRAIM LEO  Talk to me (S)
Singeln är det första kapitlet från kommande EP:n ”Timing”, där låtarna bildar en historia som var och en fokuserar på olika delar i ett förhållande. ‘One Of Them Girls’ handlar om att jag faller handlöst för en tjej jag ser,” säger Efraim. “Hon är en av de där tjejerna alla vill vara med. Det slutar med att hon krossar mitt hjärta.”

Låten har hämtat inspiration från 80-talet, The Weeknd och TV-serien Stranger Things - med körer, rytmer och ett tydligt backbeat från trummorna kommer den få alla att dansa!

2016 gjorde Efraim en feature på svenska DJ:en MARCs låt ”Show You The Light” (2016) som klättrade på Billboard Dance Chart och sålde guld i Sverige. Hans debutsingel ”You Got Me Wrong” kom 2018 och den spelades bland annat på P3.

Efraim har även hunnit med en hel del liveframträdanden; han har öppnat för Noah Kahan på Nalen i Stockholm och gjort flera spelningar utomlands, bland annat på legendariska Hotel Cafe i Los Angeles. Sommaren 2019 uppträdde han på Summerburst Göteborg, Lollapalooza Stockholm och öppnade för Icona Pop på Stockholm Pride

Focusing on powerful lyrics Noak is aiming for the listeners heart and with his dynamic voice he is influenced by artists such as John Mayer, Ed Sheeran and Shawn Mendes and Noaks soulful delivery in his music falls into a similar pop singer/ songwriter style.

Noak just released his third single 'No Love' which he wrote together with Philip Holmgren and David Kjellstrand. ’No Love’ falls under the same category as his earlier releases but with a more uptempo driving vibe combined with a distinct guitar-melody connected with Noaks clear ID in his vocals.

”’No Love’ is about being something, or that you have been something with someone and tried to do the best of the situation. However, in the end you realize that you have no love left to give”

Yesterday, Noak performed at 'Late Night Concert' - a concept where the biggest artists in Sweden perform at an empty Gröna Lund. He also got an honorable mention in Music Business Worldwide where he was appointed as one of "The Hottest Independent Artists in the World"

BATHSHEBA  Hit 'n' Run (S)
The 21-year-old pop singer and songwriter BATHSHEBA is an intriguing combination of attitude and vulnerability. She is not afraid of powerful pop-toplines, but her lyrics, which are always personal, often have a darker twist with themes such as neglect and self-doubt.

The single ‘Hit ‘N’ Run’ takes the listener on a journey of emotions: from vulnerability in the verses, to frustration in the pre-choruses and full-on girl power in the choruses. The variations in BATHSHEBA’s vocals are supported by a bass-driven production with a steady drum-beat, the coolness of which leads the listener to make associations to tracks such as Tove Lo’s ‘Cool Girl’.

"Hit 'N' Run is about feeling unimportant. It´s about giving yourself to someone, well knowing that they don’t really want you at all. You know, when someone says all the right things to you late at night, but as soon as the morning comes and reality hits, they back down."

From the get-go, BATHSHEBA has been working with internationally acknowledged producer Hennedub (Lukas Graham, Jessie Reyez, Hedegaard, Kesi etc), and she now has session lined up with international producers like Swedish producer Gustav Nyström (bülow, Tove Styrke, ALMA) and Norwegian producer Coucheron (Kehlani, Nick Jonas, KYLE).

Her debut single ‘Blind’ lived up to the hype and achieved recognition from several credible media including Soundvenue, Politiken and Bands Of Tomorrow along with a #1 on YouSee’s New Releases playlist (Denmark’s second biggest DSP). The follow-up ‘Are You There?’ was equally recognized by tastemakers and was also supported by Danish radio ANR

BRANTLEY GILBERT  Halfway to Heaven (A)
Brantley Gilbert knows that tomorrow is no guarantee. Just over five years ago the talented singer/songwriter was ignoring his deepest ambition of becoming a country singer and was just going through the motions of everyday life. It wasn’t until a nearly-fatal car accident that Brantley opened his eyes, realized the importance of living each day to the fullest, and decided to pursue his love for music as a career.

Brantley was born and raised in the small town of Jefferson, Georgia, just outside the Athens city limits. It is that upbringing and small town influence Brantley credits toward allowing him to cultivate his unique sound. With well-known rock bands REM and the B-52’s having roots nearby, Brantley’s taste in music always swayed toward a rock feel, but his true-to-life testimony of heartache, trials, triumph, and success found a home in country music.

After taking the stage night-after-night with just his guitar and opening for other country artists throughout the southeast, Brantley began to notice familiar faces in the crowds. A group of believers who shared Brantley’s passion for life and music had developed, and pretty soon the following had taken-on a life of its own. Brantley quickly realized that his acoustic shows—however intimate—didn’t satisfy his audience’s thirst for his rock-infused country music. In order to meet their demand, Brantley formed a band.

“We went from these acoustic shows to a bona fide country-rock-soul show that is wide-**** open,” says Gilbert. “Even when we play a ballad it’s high energy.”

With the fans demanding new music from Brantley, he came to Nashville, Tennessee where he soon signed with Warner Chappell Publishing and began to develop music for a debut album release. One of his songs, “The Best of Me,” was recorded by Jason Aldean and earned a spot on his Walmart exclusive release (WIDE OPEN) and ITunes. Since, Brantley has signed a record deal with Average Joe’s Entertainment and collaborated with top-charting act and labelmate Colt Ford to write and record, “Dirt Road Anthem,” which is currently featured on Ford’s multiple-week Top 25 Billboard album, RIDE THROUGH THE COUNTRY.

“I’ve realized that life can be very short, and everyone should take advantage of it,” he said. “If you’re gonna live, do something with it. Make it great.”

And great it is. Brantley celebrates the release of his sophomore album, HALFWAY TO HEAVEN, in March 2010 leading off with the single “Kick It In the Sticks.” HALFWAY TO HEAVEN follows his 2009 release, A MODERN DAY PRODIGAL SON, which features hit singles, “G.R.I.T.S.” and “Whenever We’re Alone.”

As tour dates multiply throughout the South, Brantley’s fan base continues to expand, and like most artists these days, fans can stay updated about tour dates and news via MySpace. His page garners more than 25,000 listeners daily— a number that has brought him to the 1 spot on MySpace Music Charts for both country and southern rock

SONIA STEIN  Philosophical (S)
Philosophical is the new single from London-based pop-songstress Sonia Stein. Sonia creates evocative pop earworms based on moments in her own life, feelings we can all relate to, this song is about “always trying to find the deeper meaning behind things and how that sometimes stops me from being able to let go and have fun. It’s about the frustration I have at times with people who want to distract themselves and not think about these things, and sometimes with myself, for being so fixated on them.”

RAY CARDWELL  Rising sun (S)
Ray Cardwell is one of the most diversely talented artists playing bluegrass/Americana today, with a broad array of interests and influences. From soaring harmonies to well crafted hooks Cardwell presents a fantastic collection of music like no other. His live performances leave an audience spellbound by his vocals and songwriting alike. And these recordings capture that passion and spirit. Using a bluegrass band as a base they play not only bluegrass but you will hear influences of Americana, Roots, Folk and Alt Country.

Ray grew up in a family bluegrass band, his father, Marvin Cardwell, was a talented multi-instrumentalist as well as a collector of vintage instruments. The senior Cardwell fronted one of the first live music shows in Branson, MO at Jesse James Confusion Hill in the 1960s as "Marvin Cardwell and the Country Boys." The group played a combination of traditional country music and bluegrass, performing at county fairs, town festivals, coon hunts, church events, and they even had their own live radio show every Saturday afternoon based in Aurora, MO.

Ray started singing at church and on his father's show at age three, and in sixth grade he started playing guitar and saxophone. Around 1975-76, Ray and his two sisters, Susan and Nancy, were ready to form a family band with their parents. The Cardwell Family bluegrass band performed in the late 1970s - early '80s on a variety of stages, including the Mountain Folks Music Festival at Silver Dollar City, Fort of the Osage, Dogpatch USA, and various concerts hosted by Ozarks musicologist, Max Hunter. In the ‘80s Ray was into rock & reggae, working out of Springfield, MO and in the Midwest as a musician and front man, keyboardist and sax player. He relocated for a time to Hollywood, CA with Springfield based band Resonance and played saxophone for celebrated songwriter Jack Lee (The Nerves, and writer for Blondie, Pat Benatar, and Neil Young). In 1992 he met some bluegrass enthusiasts from Columbia, MO and started his return to bluegrass with the regional band, Slick Nickel. He moved to Nashville in 1994 as a member of the critically acclaimed, nationally touring bluegrass gospel band, New Tradition. He recorded two albums with the band--one for the Brentwood label (Old Time Gospel Jamboree) and one independently released (Following the Son). In mid '96 Ray left Nashville to raise a family back in Missouri and returned to college to finish a degree in Music Education. While attending Lincoln University he performed with National Honor Choirs at both Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York City.

As a band and choral director he led students to several national competitions with high markings. While teaching he also played with an indie band called Squigglefish – a popular rock/blues/reggae power trio at the Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri.

Rays return to bluegrass came in 2015 when Producer/guitarist Pat Flynn heard a demo of his originals. After meeting with Pat, Ray decided that it was time to return to his roots. His Debut CD Tennessee Moon(2017) on Pinecastle Records was received with high praise with 10 songs charting on Bluegrass, Americana, Gospel and Folk Charts. Time To Drive was the first single release from Ray's sophomore CD Stand On My Own which was released on May 24th 2019 “Time To Drive” debuted at #1 on Bluegrass Today’s Grassicana Chart. It remained on the charts top 15 for 6 months. “Alright” debuted at #1 on the Grassicana Charts and “Hurricane Rain at #2 Before it made its way to #1. The title track Stand On My Own debuted at #4 on the same chart

Just a Little Rain (09/25/20) is Ray's 3rd CD on Bonfire Music Group Records. His First Single "Rising Sun" is co-written with award winning songwriter Louisa Brancsomb. It is set to release 6/19/20

Första soloalbumet sålde snabbt guld och hans senare album har även de sålt bra och streamat på riktigt bra. I synnerhet de låtar där han sneglar åt sin gamla publik, de som gillar dansbandsmusiken och här kommer nu en låt för denna publik. I och med detta så kommer låten hitta publiken som älskar dansband lika mycket som den singer songwriter-musik Lasse spelar emellanåt.

ALVENFORS  Gung, Gung, Gunga (S)
När Kindbergs la av för snart två år sedan så tappade Dansbandssverige ett av de mest populära moderndansbanden och väldigt många saknar bandet. Jocke Ekelund som sjöng och spelade gitarr i Kindbergs lade helt av pga att halsen hade tagit så mycket stryk under åren så han tyckte inte den höll för fyra timmar och dessutom kände de helt enkelt att det var dags att lägga av. Henrik som är kapellmästare tog steget och är idag med i Lasse Stefanz. Hur som helst - tillbaka till Joakim - nu efter två år så är suget där igen efter att lira och sjunga. Alvenfors ville ha med Jocke som sa jag till att börja lira gitarr med dom. Dessutom tog han beslutet att börja sjunga på några låtar och här är då första singeln där Jocke sjunger. Detta är en jäkligt stark bugglåt producerad av Anders Wigelius och det skall bli väldigt kul att följa utvecklingen på denna singel

Spotify har plockat med hans låtar på officiella låtar vid ett flertal tillfällen och Peters version av Errol "Eddie Meduza" Norstedts fina "Ingen plockar en maskros" togs emot riktigt bra av publiken. Nu är Peter tillbaka med en ny singel och återigen har han plockat fram en av Eddies mer seriösa sånger (för han skrev även en hel del sådana) och gjort en supersnygg bugg. Den kommer gå hem i dansbandslägret och även bland alla raggare som mer och mer lyssnar på dansbandsmusik. En riktigt sommarhit för dessa människor!

LCTRISC  Swords & Serpents (S)
LCTRISC är tillbaks efter fem års tystnad; de började med nya singeln Slow and Soft för ett par månader sedan och nu kommer en mörk fantasirock med deras nya singel Swords & Serpents; en episk 70-tals rockig, VHS-flimrande, mörk fantasidröm.

En gammal berättelse kommer fram - Swords & Serpents är uppkallad efter det fantasy-rollspel som utvecklades för Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) 1991. Nästan exakt 20 år senare bildades LCTRISC när de två medlemmarna delade en lägenhet i Borlänge. Deras nya singel var länge bara ett låtembryo som tagit form under denna period och inspirerades av det gamla NES-spelet, men låten fick aldrig ett avslut. När bandet återuppstod förra året efter en femårsperiod i vila återuppväcktes låten.

"Vi hade riffen och en titel. Inga sång eller texter. Men det var en stark identitet till den här låten som behövde få fokus och respekt. Vi ändrade ingenting, lägger bara till och utvecklar det som redan påbörjats och resultatet kändes plötsligt självklart. Det är roligt hur en låt som legat begravd på en gammal dammig hårddisk i tio år kan få nytt liv och hitta hem så snabbt".

Demonous Love - Låten åtföljs av en musikvideo som kan beskrivas som en filmisk mörk berättelse inspirerad av den typiska handlingen av ett fantasirollspel där modiga hjältar måste våga sig in i mörka världar för att kämpa mot det onda. Duon började filma tillsammans med fotografen Sofia Eriksson i november och fortsatte hela vintern och våren.

"Det är imponerande vad tre personer kan uppnå på en budget på 10 000 kr och en del hjälp från vänner och familj. Att göra musikvideor har alltid varit en av höjdpunkterna när vi släppt musik. Den här gången ville vi toppa allt vi gjort tidigare och verkligen driva oss själva för att göra den här låten rättvisa. Det behövde vara episkt, mörkt, ondskefullt och magiskt. "

Musikvideon 'Demonous Love' och tillhörande singeln 'Sword & Serpents från LCTRISC finns ute nu via Despotz Records

My grandparents used to live in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, on a beautiful piece of farmland surrounded by the Golden Ears Provincial Park, as well as the Fraser and Alouette Rivers. When I close my eyes and think of my happy place, that is where my mind takes me.

I wrote “The Ridge” to contemplate what life was like back in my grandparents’ day and what life is like now. My grandfather was Mohawk and my step-grandmother cared for me like her own. She was quite brave to take that on because there was a lot of prejudice back then, which still exists today. This song is my way of pointing out the importance of innocence in a world that is divided

THE DEER´S CRY  Princess dress (S)
The Deer’s Cry is a Nashville based band named after an old Irish prayer. They play and sing original music inspired by Irish, Bluegrass, Jazz, and other traditional genres. The Deer's Cry band is Karen Ballew (Vocals, Celtic Harp, Portative Organ), Bryan Brock (Percussion), Patrick Atwater (Double Bass), and Will MacLean (Banjo).

In late March, at the beginning of the quarantine in Nashville, Karen saw a father and his little girl out walking in her neighborhood. The girl was wearing a bright blue princess dress, and it made her smile! That dress began to symbolize hope for Karen and the band and is the inspiration for their new single, “Princess Dress”.

Karen grew up in Abilene, Texas surrounded by country music. Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks, and Alison Krauss are great inspirations to her. Fans will hear how they influence The Deer’s Cry on this new single.

“Princess Dress” is a collaboration with Irish trad guitarist Joseph Carmichael and bluegrass musician Katelyn Buckley on fiddle. Band members, Bryan, Patrick and Will brought their intuitive arranging skills to the table on this recording. Many thanks also to Ren Renfree (Sound Catcher Recording) for the mixing and mastering and to Madison Thames for creating the original artwork for this song!

The Deer’s Cry released their debut album, Rise with the Dawn, in January 2020. The soundscapes on this album are enriched by the unique voices of their collaborators: friends in the US, Iceland, England and Ireland. Together, they journey through various hues of light and dark which culminate in their final track, The Deer's Cry prayer.

The band looks forward to more live performances as soon as it is safe to do so! In the meantime, they will continue sharing recordings, music videos, and live performance footage (from their January CD release concert) on YouTube and social media

COLT FORD  Ride through the Country (A)
Colt Ford is a walking, talking 300-pound celebration of country music and country living. His songs pay tribute to the people, pastimes and attitudes that define a lifestyle embraced from Texas to Wisconsin, from Florida to Washington State and a lot of places in between. For all the bigger-than-life excitement that defines his music and his stage show, though, Colt is quick to point to what lies underneath it all.

"I'm just an average Joe who's been blessed with the ability to write music and who loves to perform," he says. "I talk about everyday real country life and I believe in real country values—God, family, friends, and hard work. And if that ain't country, I don't know what is."

His connections to the lifestyle run deep. An avid sports fan and outdoorsman, he wrote "Buck 'Em" for the Professional Bull Riders Association, and "Huntin' The World," the award-winning theme song of the popular Outdoor Channel show of the same name, and he capped a lifetime of appreciation for country music's rich musical heritage when he made his debut early in 2010 on the Grand Ole Opry.

Colt's specialty is spoken-word country in the tradition of a line of hits that travels from Toby Keith's "I Want To Talk About Me" to Charlie Daniels' "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" (a song he covers to huge effect in concert) through Jerry Reed's "Amos Moses" and C. W. McCall's "Convoy" to Johnny Cash's "A Boy Named Sue" and "What Is Truth." His latest CD, Chicken and Biscuits, sets his world-class story-telling ability to cutting-edge music played by some of Nashville's best players. It brings together the energy of hip-hop and the depth and rootedness of country in a project destined to carry Colt's unique sound to an even wider audience.

Chicken and Biscuits, produced by Jayson Chance and Shannon "Fatshan" Houchins, is Colt's second studio album, following his 2008 breakthrough Ride Through The Country, which catapulted the Georgia native to mainstream status, with sales of more than 150,000 and paid downloads approaching half a million,

C&B "is one hundred percent me with a lot of growth from the first record," he says, "but I didn't lose who I was." A high-octane excursion through the best of life and love, it celebrates country women ("Chicken & Biscuits," "All About Ya'll," "She Ain't Too Good For That"), country life ("Cricket On A Line," "We Like To Hunt"), and the blue collar people who keep it all running ("Tool Timer" and a fiery remake of C.W. McCall's classic "Convoy"), among other subjects.

The project provides plenty of examples of the wealth of peer respect and support Colt has earned. It features a long list of all-star guest vocalists, including Rhett Akins, James Otto, Randy Houser, Josh Gracin, Darryl Worley, Joe Nichols, Ira Dean and DMC, to name just a few. The world-class musicians backing the project include a Who’s Who of Nashville’s session greats, on board because of their appreciation for Colt’s musical approach.

Chicken and Biscuits perfectly captures the spirit that has energized packed houses across the country and spurred many Colt fans to drive hours to follow his shows from town to town. It's a reaction that has made him one of the most genuinely grateful and fan-friendly performers in the business—he is in touch with fans on a daily basis online and he is adamant about meeting with them after his shows.

"I’m a big boy and you can bet I get tired up there," he says, "but I do what I do visiting with people and signing autographs because I have the best fans in the world. I’m inspired by their energy and I want to give them everything I’ve got.” In part the connection is there because Colt Ford is cut from the same cloth as the people who flock to his shows. He grew up outside Athens, Georgia, drinking in Southern country culture with the water, developing a deep appreciation for the outdoors and enjoying every kind of popular music that floated across the airwaves in a state whose musical icons are as diverse as they are talented. "I never got into music," he says. "Music got into me. It's always been a part of my life." His first concert was Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, but as a teenager his appreciation for hip-hop and R&B led him in that direction as well. A sports enthusiast from early on, he excelled at both golf and music by the time he reached adulthood. When, as a young married man with a baby on the way, his wife advised him to choose one and throw himself whole-heartedly into it, he chose golf. "I figured I had a better chance of making a living at that," he says.

He spent more than a decade doing just that with his golf clubs, but he kept making music on the side. "Even though I was doing something else for a living," he says, "I could never just cut this off. It's who I am." With encouragement from his wife, he wrote "Buck 'Em" for the PBR, and the organization quickly made it its anthem. Colt made his musical and video debut on national television at the VERSUS Invitational Pro Bull Riding competition in Madison Square Garden in January 2007. He was off and running. His unique combination of musical styles came about in part because of what he saw in honky-tonks, where when the country band took a break, "The DJ's would play hip-hop and those country girls would be out there on the floor dancing to it. I knew there was a place for combining them."

Award-winning blues and Americana vocalist Shemekia Copeland premieres her timely new song, "Uncivil War," to global radio via AirPlay Direct. “Uncivil War” is a courageous statement pleading for unity in a time of disunion, and is unlike anything Copeland has previously recorded. "Uncivil War" takes no sides and speaks to every person's desire to be safe and free.

Featuring iconic mandolin wizard Sam Bush, dobro master Jerry Douglas and background vocals from popular alternative band, The Orphan Brigade, the song is simultaneously comforting and challenging, as Copeland sings, "Same old wounds we've opened before / Nobody wins an uncivil war." Shemekia delivers the song with passion and insight about the chaos and uncertainty in the world while still finding light in the darkness and hope for the future.

According to Copeland, "It's not just a song. I'm trying to put the 'united' back in the United States. Like many people, I miss the days when we treated each other better. For me, this country's all about people with differences coming together to be part of something we all love. That's what really makes America beautiful."

  1. Queen (live)
  2. I gotchu (live)

Evil Art Sessions är en serie av live sessions producerade av Icons Creating Evil Art och släpps en gång i månaden, via Youtube som live-videos samt som digitala singlar tillgängliga för streaming. Varje månad framför den utvalda artisten en av sina egna låtar nedskalade till en live-session version, samt en cover av en annan artist signad till ICEA.

Icons Creating Evil Art är en boutique musik-label och distributör med intentionen att väcka känslor och reaktioner, passionerade att provocera, inspirera, skapa, krossa och motarbeta gamla strukturer och ha roligt på vägen. Med ambitionen att bekämpa konservatism har labelet signerat och utvecklat nya talanger i det ständigt växande pop fältet sedan 2015.

Live-inspelningen är producerad hos Flick Studios via kollektivet Raw Street Running Club. Filmad och redigerad av: Streetlight Promotion (streetlightmotion.com) Musik inspelad, mixad och mastrad av: Ellinor Sterner Bonander.

Bonanders musik har ett påträngande mörker som inte lämnar någon oberörd. Här förmedlas tunga ämnen från ett feministiskt och normkritiskt perspektiv, inbäddade i vackra texter och melodisk lekfullhet. Genom att skapa sitt eget "Witchland", söker Bonander att influera människor med sin konst och ge åhöraren en möjlighet att knyta an till musiken emotionellt, på det sätt hon själv har gjort hela sitt liv. Hennes kreativa elektroniska ljudlandskap utmanar kutymens gränser, men bibehåller samtidigt sin tilldragande underfundighet. Bonander följde upp sitt hyllade framförande på Manifestgalan förra året med releasen av "Annie", den första av en serie singlar som kommer släppas under 2020. Det nya året invigdes med släppet av "Martha" vilken är, som sin föregångare, skriven som ett epos och stärker ytterligare Bonanders mystiska och poetiska sagoberättande. Nu presenterar hon den nya låten "Queen" genom sin Evil Art Session med den Stockholmsbaserade Indie labeln Icons Creative Evil Art

BASKERY  The fall (S)
Nya singeln ”The Fall” är en originalkomposition av systrarna Bondesson inspelad i Sverige, till skillnad från gruppens tidigare album, som producerats och spelats in i USA och Tyskland. Låten påbörjades redan 2013, året innan flytten till USA, men färdigställdes först nu i år, under Covid-19-krisen.

Texten berör temat uppbrott och personligt ”fall” och musiken rör sig i ett ljudlandskap någonstans mellan Mumford & Sons, Smith & Thell och The Lumineers, men är såklart starkt präglad av det unika sound som Baskery gjord sig kända för genom åren.

Systrarna Bondesson i Baskery befinner sig just nu i karantän i tre olika länder, har inte kunnat träffas men hoppas snart kunna återförenas och ta vid där allt abrupt tog stopp i våras. ”The Fall” kommer att finnas med på bandets femte studioalbum, som planerades att spelas in i England i början av maj, men som på grund av rådande situation skjutits fram på obestämd tid.

Tidigare releaser har flitigt handplockats av Spotify till utvalda spellistor i folkgenren (Fresh Folk och Wild + Free), i sällskap av artister som Nathaniel Rateliff, First Aid Kit, Foals, The Revivalists, Brandi Carlile och Jade Bird.
