Known for her unique soulful vocals and relatable lyrics, UK singer/songwriter Lucy-May announces the release of her new single, ‘Counting The Days’ on 11 August, the lead track to be taken from her highly anticipated follow-up second album, out this Autumn. Her debut single ‘Paper Heart’ reached Radio 2 playlist in 2013 and her debut album ‘Whirlwind’ proudly boasted the highly sought after ‘Highly Recommend’ position at HMV. Now with a complete catalogue of fresh original material in the shape of her follow-up album and a UK tour planned for the Autumn, Lucy-May is back with a sound which surpasses anything she’s ever done before.
Deep, rich and deliciously soulful, ‘Counting The Days’ is the first single from Lucy-May’s forthcoming album and serves up a mouth-watering slice of chilled soul/pop heaven, written by Lucy-May and Greg Fitzgerald. A semi-biographical track about love-loss, ‘Counting The Days’ was written from the raw emotions felt when Greg’s wife died in 2016, running in tandem with Lucy-May’s relationship break down. Both faced with different reasons for love-loss, but left with the same bitter, painful scars which found them counting the days since love went from their lives. Unable to actually ‘speak’ about their pain, but knowing that their emotions were mirrored in each other, the pair poured their heart wrenching loss into song. Laying bare the rawness of that pain for all to see, Lucy-May’s stunning vocals convey a pure emotion and sentiment that’s nothing short of nerve tingling.
