In a somewhat surprising move, Carly Pearce has released a news single. Fresh off the amazing success of her debut album ‘Every Little Thing’, this is the first glimpse we’ve had from Carly’s upcoming album, which is slated for 2019 from Big Machine Records. Check out the lyric video above, which includes behind the scenes studio footage.
Carly shared, “I’ve always been the type of artist who wants to record the best songs, even if I didn’t have a hand in writing them. ‘Closer To You’ is one of those songs that instantly spoke to me and painted a beautiful picture of where I’m at right now. I’m so excited to share this next chapter with my fans and hope they love it as much as I do!”
Rolling Stone magazine states, “it’s an up-tempo ode to being in love that melds Nineties country slickness with a bit of R&B and nods to her traditionalist roots, thanks to the dobro playing of her longtime band member Josh Matheny. It also showcases Pearce’s unique vocal command, which bends and holds the notes in unexpected ways and taps effortlessly at the top of her range.”
With Carly Pearce heading over to these shores for C2C in March, we’ll be sure to hearing a healthy does of Carly’s new material – the album could even be out by then!
