Earlier this month Country music sensation Sarah Darling announced that her upcoming album would be available to pre-order from October 26th with early access given to fans who sign up to her official newsletter.
And today, Darling confirmed that her new record will be titled ‘Wonderland‘ and it will be released on March 1st, 2019. It’s one of the most eagerly anticipated country records out next year alongside Ward Thomas’ ‘Restless Minds’ which releases on February 1st.
The new album from Sarah Darling will be available to pre order generally from Friday, but fans who signed up for early access can get their hands on a variety of exciting packages from today.
The project is being funded through Pledge Music which allows supporters to purchase packages such as signed CD bundles, and backstage passes with the money going towards creating the record.
Speaking on Pledge Music about her new LP ‘Wonderland’, Sarah says: “Hi Darlings! I am so excited to be returning to PledgeMusic with the pre-order of my new album, “Wonderland”. My previous album, “Dream Country” happened only because of the support of my great fans here on PledgeMusic so I’m especially thrilled to be letting you all in on the latest news about my next big project! The 2017 release of “Dream Country” began such an amazing journey for me, at home in the US as well as in the UK “my home away from home”. In the UK, 2018 marked my third year performing at C2C (Country to Country) and in March, I launched my first UK headline tour beginning at Union Chapel in London! The tour was a blast! Thank you to everyone who came out to see me! Another highlight of 2018 was opening at BST Hyde Park this summer for James Taylor and Paul Simon! My US tour dates have taken me from Florida to Iowa to California and, most recently, to the Washington State Fair. I recently had my 89th (!) appearance on the Grand Ole Opry, my 7th appearance at CMA Fest in Nashville, and I have been fortunate to be a frequent guest at the Bluebird Café. Since the beginning of 2017, I’ve also been collaborating with incredible musicians and artists, writing something like 80 new songs. From those, we’ve narrowed down to a handful that will become my new album, “Wonderland”. Some of these songs have already been recorded, with producers on both sides of the Atlantic, including Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood & Rascal Flatts), Ash Howes (Dido, Ellie Goulding, & Kylie Minogue), Pete Hammerton (Wandering Hearts, Twinnie), and Jim Eliot (Ellie Goulding, Kylie Minogue, Christina Perri). Working with these diverse writers and producers, we’ve developed a distinct and contemporary sound that fuses together these transatlantic influences, totally capturing where I am creatively. I can’t wait to bring you along on the last stages of my journey to release “Wonderland,” scheduled to drop on March 1. Meanwhile, I’ll be sharing a variety of exclusive “behind the scenes” content, merch, digital downloads, and early versions of songs that will only be available through pre-orders here on PledgeMusic! I hope to meet many of you on my next tour so we can celebrate “Wonderland” together!”
Along with announcing details of ‘Wonderland’, Sarah is also giving fans who purchase any package from the Pledge Music site a free download of the sensational ‘A Little Bit Of Rain’. This is a gorgeous stripped back country ballad that showcases Sarah’s divine vocal tone.
The new record has been recorded and written largely in the UK, with Sarah saying:
Being able to make a record in the place where my love story first started completely feels meant to be. After falling in love with the UK and touring here over the years, I wanted to make an album that allowed me to collaborate with writers and producers over here. This album reflects this great adventures I’ve been on, and I’m so excited to share this new sound with all of you.”
