STREAM ‘CALL ME’ VIA DSP SERVICES: HERE
Country singer-songwriter Sarah Darling unveils ‘Call Me’, the first single from her highly anticipated 5th album ‘Wonderland’, due March 2019. The single was released as a ‘First Listen’ on the album’s PledgeMusic campaign site HERE last Friday, and is on all streaming platforms now.
Sarah’s musical output is pushing her beyond the realms of country and further developing her sound. This rapidly rising artist has developed a distinct and contemporary sound that fuses together influences from both sides of the Atlantic. With pop sensibilities and clear-cut hooks creeping into the mix, the songs show that she is clearly building on her country roots and the success of breakout album ‘Dream Country’.
‘Call Me’ signposts the latest stop on a journey that Sarah has been undertaking towards the most promising and anticipated album of her career. Sarah describes ‘Wonderland’ as a transformative time in her life, one that has allowed her to experiment in new sonic territories. “The whole concept of my ‘Wonderland’ album was to explore a brand new world artistically. Because of my connection to the U.K., I thought ‘what better place to bring my Nashville roots to be creative’. I think it’s good as an artist to stretch the boundaries, because you are always growing and that’s how you find new magic and move forward to wonderful, new places.”
A host of exceptional artists came on board to collaborate with Sarah on ‘Wonderland’, including writers from both the US and UK. Working with these songwriters has been a dream for Sarah, who took the challenge of writing with guests in her stride, “I’ve been in England for most of the year co-writing and working with producers. On this project, it’s really about new friends and new ideas. I literally would walk into a co-writing session, and had never met the person before. It’s so incredibly exciting to be finishing up the album, and to say I’ve recorded this in a different country. It’s a true reflection of me, and the current ride I’m on. Not to mention, I have new friends and memories for life. Music is about the connection. I’m so proud to share this trans-Atlantic collaboration. It’s the greatest adventure of my life to date!”
‘Call Me’ co-writers are Daniel Tashian (Kacey Musgraves, Martina McBride, Sara Evans), Matt Dragstrem (David Guetta, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton) and Sarah Buxton (Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson). ‘Call Me” was produced by Jim Eliot whose credits include projects with Ellie Goulding, Kylie Minogue and Christina Perri.
Sarah will soon be announcing a host of UK dates in March 2019, where she will be showcasing ‘Wonderland’ for feverish fans who have been waiting to hear what Sarah has been cooking up in the past few months. Details coming soon.
