Good things come to those who wait…. and such is the case with the fourth album from multiplatinum selling singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald. Eleven brand new songs written and recorded in the Summer of 2016 and now set for release on February 17th 2017. Following two sell-out “underplay” shows in London and Glasgow in November 2016, Amy is beyond excited to announce a full UK Tour for 2017 – including her first ever show at the Royal Albert Hall – and of course the release of “Under Stars”. The superb new album is available on CD & vinyl with eleven tracks, plus a Deluxe CD version with eight acoustic tracks, record at RAK Studios in London - one of which is her superb take on the Bruce Springsteen song “I’m On Fire”.
A diverse and sparse series of songs, most of which revolve around falling out of love and disillusionment with the world in general. Although these themes could lead to Carnival Love being one of the most depressing albums ever, Amy Correia's fragile, singsong voice carries each track gently along, leaving the listener with an unshakable feeling of hope. Reminiscent of Mary Lou Lord or Victoria Williams, her little girl voice belies a worldly brashness and wry knowledge that lends itself well to her sparse poetry. A good first album which will surely lead to even more successful efforts in the future.
