Following the success of his first single, ‘Landslide’, Andy Brown has now released his second solo single, ‘Talk Of The Town’. Taken from his upcoming album, the track was released on Decca Records on 19 January, with his album to follow in June 2018.
Having sold over 1 million records as the front man of Lawson, singer-songwriter Andy signed a major record deal with Decca Records last year for the release of his first solo material. He spent 6 months in Nashville writing, recording and mixing his now finished debut solo album, Cedarmont.
The album draws from the strong blues and country influences, as well as the traditional pop/rock sound that made Lawson so successful. His new sound is reminiscent of Thomas Rhett and Chris Stapleton, as well as John Mayer and James Bay. This new, more raw sound will not only resonate with his existing fan base, but will also establish him with new audiences who appreciate the fusion between Americana and contemporary UK Country.
His new track ‘Talk Of The Town’ is an upbeat portrayal of timeless love, showcasing Andy’s knack for writing heartfelt and catchy lyrics which is sure to leave listeners humming along for days. The Nashville inspired strings and drums act as a perfect accompaniment to Andy’s smooth and distinctive vocals.
Andy says, “I feel so lucky for all the support I’ve had around the first single ‘Landslide’, and I’m so excited to now share ‘Talk Of The Town’ with fans, old and new. I feel like I can really be myself because I’m now making music that I’m truly passionate about.”
Born and raised in the music-centric city of Liverpool, Andy grew up listening to a variety of musical styles throughout his life, but he soon became enamoured by Nashville’s innate sense of songcraft. With this album, Andy has discovered a new platform for personal expression, exposing a different, more sensitive side of his song-writing.
Andy Brown’s debut album is due for release in June 2018.
