Wallis Bird announces new album “Woman” + releases first single

Wallis Bird has announced her new album Woman (AntiFragile) and shared the first single “As The River Flows” with the accompanying music video. Woman is due out on September 27.

Ask Wallis Bird what changes she’s experienced since 2016’s Home, her last album, and she’ll offer a list. “Well, the world’s changed a lot,” she’ll begin, “and I’ve changed with it. The #MeToo movement, ‘Repeal The 8th’, marriage equality in Australia, ‘Black Lives Matter’, Trump, Brexit, the rise of racism, the death of countless musical icons, the environmental crisis… And,” she’ll add, wryly, “I’m 36 now, so I’m officially a woman…!”

“Vienna,” recorded with George Ezra producer Cam Blackwood, captures Donovan’s storytelling knack. He weaves tales about his friends and family into his songs and loves finding magic in the mundanity of everyday life. “I love talking to people and seeing how their mind works,” he says, “seeing what they’re going through and getting perspectives on how people think.

Time For Three release their first original song with vocals “Joy”

In a statement, Time For Three notes, ‘”Joy” is a song that we wrote to capture the often-unknown struggles behind something beautiful or meaningful. The three of us are all classically trained musicians so when we first started writing this song, our original inspiration of a protagonist was Beethoven, someone who has given the world so much joy yet had lived quite a difficult life. On a broader spectrum, it’s a song about anyone who has given the gift of joy and has undergone the rollercoaster of emotions getting there.”
