Music News - Mel Parsons delivers dark and intense new single 'Already Gone'

Mel Parsons delivers dark and intense  new single 'Already Gone'

03 December 2021 - 0 Comments

Award-winning singer-songwriter and touring artist Mel Parsons rounds off the year with another mesmerizing single Already Gone from her upcoming new album, due out in 2022.

Listen to Already Gone HERE

Already Gone hits head-on, its bruisingnew wave urgency is dark and intense - the perfect follow up to the album’s first single Carry On (released in August).

Co-written with Josh Logan , who also takes production credits, and recorded at LOHO Studios in Ōtautahi, Already Gone taps into the feeling of having emotionally checked out of a situation that you are still physically present in.

Carry On and Already Gone are the first new releases from Mel since her critically acclaimed album Glass Heart, which saw her win the coveted Best Folk Artist / Te Kaipuoro Taketake Toa at the 2020 Aotearoa Music Awards. The record was also a finalist for the 2019 Taite Music Prize and Top 20 finalist at 2019’s APRA Silver Scroll Award.

The album’s accolades are among a number of significant milestones, which have contributed to Mel’s recognition on the international indie-folk scene. Her debut album Over My Shoulder and her sophomore album Red Grey Blue were both finalists for Folk Album of the Year (in 2009 and 2011, respectively). This is all in addition to her 2015 released album Drylands, which spent 51 weeks in the Independent Music NZ Album charts and won a Tui for Best Engineer in the same year. The full-time touring artist also garnered a Silver Scroll finalist nod for Get Out Alive in 2015 and the 2016 NZCMA Best Song for Alberta Sun.

Already Gone is the most tantalizing reason yet for Aotearoa music lovers to brush off a turbulent year and catch Mel Parsons live on her four-date tour, December 8 - 16.
