In her official release on November 10th, Laura Evans brings us a November firework in the form of She’s a “Heartbreaker.”
This one is a sparkler, a roman candle that uses up the rockier edge of Laura’s country sound. The drum sound is really solid, and the chorus hooks take the song into a solid groove. You listen to this, and you feel that boogie take you over. Boom!
So we have a winter winner here that will do great on commercial rock and country radio; for a Welsh girl, she has an American sound on this too!
We have chatted to Laura a couple of times here at the magazine, and she can cast that certain spell. You will enjoy this one.
On songwriting, Laura told us,
“You can overwork a song, yes. You don’t always have the luxury of time to try it in so many ways. When I make a record, I decide what I want it to sound like and the direction it will take. And that is what we are going to do. Later down the line, I might reimagine it, but I don’t always have the time or money to spend forever on a track.”
Talking about the writing and recording process for this track, Laura said,
“I wanted to write something a little different and put a spin on the theme of “Heartbreak.” I wanted to push the boundaries with my love of blues and rock while keeping that commercial sound. This summer, when I got together with my co-writer, Stace James, the lyrics came easily, and we had fun painting this picture of a fierce, powerful character and creating a sing-along anthem. Once I got into the studio with my producer, Josiah, he brought it to life.”
This is an exciting new era of music for Laura Evans fans, with a new album in the making, set for release in spring 2024. Laura had a very busy touring schedule this year; she just finished her six-date UK tour and will embark on her first headline European tour, which kicks off in Holland on November 17th.
