As well as the new singles from Petric, Teak, Amber Lawrence and Catherine Britt, and Aaron Jurd which we premiered this week and our Artist of the Week Hayley Jensen, there’s a handful of artists we’re still keen to share! From Melody Moko to The Wolfe Brothers, Tahlia Matheson and NEEDTOBREATHE and so many more, here’s a wrap up of all the new releases in country world!
Coming Up Roses – Melody Moko
Following the success of smash hits Mama and Like Hank Would, Golden Guitar ‘New Talent of The Year’ winner, Moko has released her latest single Coming Up Roses, taken from her album, Two Kids and A Radio. She has also announced a special deluxe version of the album, out on June 11, will feature four new tracks.
Startin’ Something – Wolfe Brothers feat. LOCASH
Tasmanian duo, The Wolfe Brothers have teamed up with Billboard Country Airplay chart-topper and 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards Duo of Year nominee on their latest single. Startin’ Something is the third single released from The Wolfe Brothers’ fifth album, Kids On Cassette, now announced for release on July 30.
No Thanks I’m Fine – Tahlia Matheson
The Bryon Bay-based singer-songwriter was only eight years old when she began singing, having grown up watching her Dad play in bands. At 16-years-old, she performed at the Byron Bay Blues Festival, and four years later, at The Blue Bird Café in Nashville, Tennessee. In late 2018, Matheson released her debut EP Wait and See, containing 4 original songs. No Thanks I’m Fine is her first new single release for 2021.
I Wanna Remember by NEEDTOBREATHE feat. Carrie Underwood
I Wanna Remember is a nostalgic track and takes you back to the moments you never want to forget. The song will appear on the band’s upcoming eighth studio album, Into The Mystery, which will also feature collaborations with Switchfoot’s Jon Foreman and Natalie Hemby of The Highwomen. The 12-track album’s title song was released earlier this month, along with a teaser for a documentary about the sessions.
New Star – Watchhouse
Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz of Watchhouse – the critically acclaimed roots music duo who until recently were known as Mandolin Orange – have announced their new self-titled album, Watchhouse is due on August 13. Their latest single, New Star is about familial solidarity and self-sacrifice that is plain-spoken but vital.
Rain – Outlaw Ave
Australian country rock band, Outlaw Ave’s new single, Rain is dedicated to the hard-working men and women who operate our farms, and the blood sweat and tears that go into everything they do to provide for their family, us and consumers. The track went to number one of the iTunes country charts and number two on the Australian independent charts. Their second EP, Leave It With Me is due for release soon.
Forget About The World – Isaac Kennedy
The brand-new country rock single from artist and producer, Isaac Kennedy, Forget About the World is about having a good time and leaving all your worries at the door, inspired by current events and times. Labelled as “the most Rock & Roll guitarist in the biz”, he has played for many artists on tours and at country music festivals such as Tamworth, Gympie Muster and Groundwater.
Cheers Y’all – Cassidy-Rae
Cheers Y’all is the upbeat, anthemic new single from Cassidy-Rae. The music features some fellow country artists as well as some recognisable faces from her weekly livestreams. Cheers y’all started as a toast she performed on cruise ships around the world, and is now a way she connects and celebrates the friendships she made along the way.
Bound for Home – Emily Barker and Frank Turner
Emily Barker and Frank Turner have been friends and collaborators for around fifteen years, but this is the first song they have written together. The song took on extra meaning when the pandemic hit, with Barker finding herself stranded in her adopted home in the UK, unable to visit her family back in Australia; but also the realisation that the song has a message that most listeners will be able to relate to in these times as she sings “Bound for home, we’re all bound for home in the end”.
Roll With It – Dan Davidson feat. The Road Hammers
Having teamed up with The Road Hammers, Roll With It is the super catchy new single from Dan Davidson, about grinning and bearing it. With 6 CCMA nominations, 10 ACMA awards, a gold record, a number 1 selling Canadian song and record, and top 20 charting numbers, it’s an impressive feat for the independent country artist who is still only five years into his country career, following his over ten years playing in indie rock band Tupelo Honey.
