Weeks after releasing a genre-bending makeover of her signature song “My Love,” Clare Dunn is back with new music. Released on October 18, “Gold to Glitter” and “Money’s All Gone” both shine new light on Dunn’s “swaggering confidence and soulful vocals” (Rolling Stone), while also making room for her top-tier guitar skills and supersized hooks.
“‘Gold to Glitter’ is about watching the golden sunset turn into the glittery, star-filled, wide-open night sky that I grew up under,” she says. “Sunset has always been my favorite time of day, and the sunsets I grew up watching were spectacular.”
“‘Money’s All Gone’ is inspired by all the times my sister and I would go to town in a 1984 Chevrolet dually that ran on propane with a couple bucks in our pocket,” Dunn remembers. “We’d have fun until the money was all gone, then head home. It was the norm for kids who grew up where I’m from.” She traces the song’s rock & roll attitude back to those childhood days out west, too. “Most people think when you make a living in agriculture, like we did, that it’s a laid-back life,” she explains, “when really you’ve got to rock & roll to get it done.”
