Australian singer songwriter Taylor Henderson is set to release his brand new studio album, BURNT LETTERS, on Friday July 11th, through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
In early March, Taylor Henderson released his latest single ‘When You Were Mine’, a beautiful melodic single - co-penned by the young artist - which became an instant hit, racking up a Top 5 position on the ARIA Single Chart and achieving platinum status.
The success of the single set the tone for BURNT LETTERS; an impressive collection of handsome songs that weave together pop and folk styles with an apparent ease. This is further enhanced by song writing that is unashamedly intimate and tender, whilst the melodies are simple and uncomplicated. Taylor's earnest delivery is buoyant by way of his easy-going charm, and as a result his grounded honesty comes across as distinctively Australian.
Working with an array of producers and co-writers which include Louis Schoorl (Guy Sebastian, 360, Daniel Johns), John Hume from NZ band Evermore (Matt Corby), Alex Hope (Tina Arena), and Lindsay Rimes (The McClymonts), Taylor's song writing flourished as he relished the collaboration experience.
"There are some songs on the album that were written years ago,” explains Taylor. “Then there are other songs that are fresh and where I've tried new things, but at the core of all the songs is me. It all relates to the person I am, and the artist I am. It's a pure undiluted reflection, and as far as I'm concerned, that's the only way it should be."
