Megan Washington releases Who Are You
Posted on 27 Feb 2014
The long awaited return of Australia's leading songwriter and performer is here.
Megan Washington's new single 'Who Are You' is available now
‘Who Are You’ is the first new Megan Washington studio recording in more than two years. It is said that time is what prevents everything from happening at once. With Megan Washington this most surely is the case. And this most surely is her time. This fearless next step is a bold statement from this authentic artist and showcases the direct and intimate song writing that you can expect to hear from her future recordings.
It is not that Megan Washington has been standing still since the release of her breakthrough debut album ‘I Believe You Liar’ in 2010. Between touring the planet in support of the release, the then 24 year-old carried home ARIA and APRA awards for the multi platinum-selling LP and became one of Australia’s most recognised voices in the process.
The release of the darker, more introspective ‘Insomnia’ EP perhaps hinted at a new direction for Washington, and her sold-out Sydney Opera House show, by the same name, book-ended an incredible 2 years. Most importantly however this phase would ignite a period of intense creative growth that would lead Megan Washington to this moment.
In 2013 Megan Washington arrived in London, ready to embrace a Northern European summer and a musical revolution. It also saw her reconnect in the studio with Australian record producer Samuel Dixon (Sia, Adele) and Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint) on drums.
‘Who Are You’ is a direct and personal pop song… a seriously contemporary oeuvre that was captured on analogue tape in London’s famous RAK studios and Peter Gabriel’s New World. It sounds like nothing to have come before it and will challenge your perceptions of just WHO Megan Washington is.
