On the back of a comedown from the euphoria and chaos, Newcastle singer-songwriter, Natalie Henry takes a resoundingly frank measure of life after leavin’ the slow and steady comforts of her old familiar in her new single, More Than A Woman – and Countrytown has your first listen for this exclusive premiere.
Self-penned, with each line penned as though she forgot the question mark – Natalie wages that reassurance oughta come cheap as she lilts between bargaining chips feeble and anguished – herself the one not buying: “If I pray real hard and drive real fast, I won’t look back … no, I’ll never look back”.
Natalie wrote on facebook, “More Than A Woman is gonna’ open me up and expose me like bein’ left naked in a hall of mirrors. Now, sometimes in life you’re gonna’ have thoughts and feelins’ that you’d never dare tell another … they leave you feelin’ confused, maybe like a sin, maybe like a curse. And hell, we’re all walk-in’ around projectin’ what fits and conforms but how often are we sharin’ the shadows? What would you give to know you’re not alone? More Than A Woman is a story many women in my particular stylin’ of boots experience but bury deep.”
More Than A Woman follows Natalie’s previous alt-country track, Weed, Wine and Women. Both singles will appear on her recently crowd-funded forthcoming album. Raising an impressive $15,000, the album was produced by multi-award-winning singer-songwriter Catherine Britt and Michael Muchow from Moko Productions and recorded at Rocking Horse Studios in the Bryon Bay hinterland. Both music videos were directed by Jazmyn Produces.
Natalie is also the first artist to be signed to Britt’s 2020-established independent record label, Beverley Hillbilly Records, and will release her forthcoming second album in September. In 2016, Natalie and her ex-husband Brock Henry released their debut album, Cold Love as The Wayward Henrys and in 2019, she released her debut solo record, Apple & Pride.
