Alex Lahey signs with Liberation Records

Alex Lahey signs with Liberation Records

Liberation Records has signed Alex Lahey ahead of the release of her new single ‘Spike The Punch’, which is out today.

It is Lahey’s first release since she penned and recorded ‘On My Way’, the theme song for The Mitchells vs The Machines, a Sony Pictures Animation which is now Netflix’s biggest animated release of all time.

Lahey said she is honoured to have signed with Liberation and be joining the wider Mushroom family.

“I am incredibly honoured to have signed with Liberation and be a part of the Mushroom family. I’ve always had such admiration and respect for Mushroom and the Gudinski’s and am so excited to combine our independent spirits and let my music be heard.”

Liberation Records is similarly enamoured with Lahey, with Damian Slevison, managing director, saying he’s thrilled to welcome Lahey to the roster.

“She’s been one of the country’s most successful and respected indie artists in recent years and we really look forward to working with her on this exciting next period of her career. ‘Spike the Punch’ is a superb way to start our relationship together.”

Lahey had her breakthrough moment in 2016 with ‘You Don’t Think You Like People Like Me’. Since then, she’s amassed 50 million streams on DSPs worldwide and had two albums in the ARIA Albums Chart top 30.

In August, Lahey wrote an open letter calling on more Government support to assist the entertainment sector’s recovery.

In it, she warned Australia was at risk of losing a generation’s worth of live performance talent and crew.

“I have seen some of the most talented individuals turn their backs on what were once-promising careers as performers, venue workers and crew. But despite the turmoil we face as a collective and as individuals within our industry, Federal Government promises continue to be broken and schemes have been left behind,” she said.
