Following the success of their single ‘One Kiss Later’ and C2C performances in March, Glasgow’s country duo Ashton Lane have announced their new single ‘Seventeen’, also taken from the acclaimed album Nashville Heart (5* – Maverick Magazine). The song will be released through digital channels on May 2nd 2016, and is now available for pre-order via iTunes. The band have also released a video of their acoustic performance of ‘Seventeen’ on STV earlier this year.
The song, featuring both Esther & Tim O’Connor on lead vocals, centers around an old flame from high school, thinking back to “the one that got away”. In their own words: “I think it’s something that many people can relate to; a high school sweetheart that you think back to after the years have gone by”. It’s a song reminiscing about that carefree time of being seventeen and young love.
‘Seventeen’ features a lamenting fiddle part by Scottish fiddle player Seonaid Aitken which also helps to tell the story of the song.
“From the moment that we wrote the song it’s been a firm favourite of mine, and one that we wanted to release as a single. It’s usually the song we open up our live shows with and the opening track from the album Nashville Heart” – Esther O’Connor.
The single is officially released and widely available for download from May 2nd 2016, and available for pre-order from iTunes now!
