Gold Coast musician Amy Shark will release her debut EP NIGHT THINKER on April 21. The vinyl will follow on May 12.
NIGHT THINKER EP features the brand new single ‘Weekends’ which was produced by Dann Hume (Matt Corby, Daniel Johns, Courtney Barnett).
"Weekends’ is an extremely personal song, I actually wrote the guitar part about 5 years ago which sounds crazy, but I couldn't think of any lyrics good enough to match the guitar so I let it go for so many years, until now! I’m so excited to announce the release of my debut EP Night Thinker, this body of work has been brewing for a very long time, I held nothing back on this EP and it's going to be an incredible feeling once it's finally released to the world”
The new single follows on from the enormous success of Amy Shark’s breakout track, ‘Adore’, which has now officially surpassed 10 million streams on Spotify. ‘Adore’ was placed #2 on triple j’s Hottest 100, peaked at #3 on the ARIA chart, #1 on the Australian iTunes chart, #1 on the Australian Shazam chart and #5 on the Australian Spotify chart. The brooding, coming-of-age track is also short-listed for the Top 5 APRA Song of The Year and is officially accredited with Double Platinum sales in Australia.
Amy Shark’s success doesn’t stop there, she recently partnered with RCA records in the U.S. and appointed her worldwide booking agent team including: Marty Diamond (Ed Sheeran, Cold Play, Charli XCX) of Paradigm Talent Agency (USA) Rob Zifarelli (City and Colour, Vance Joy, Boy and Bear) of United Talent Agency (CAN) and Natasha Bent (CVRCHES, Foster the People) of Coda Agency (UK / Europe). 2017 is set to be a big year for Amy Shark and will see her take her music across the globe.
