Listen to Amy Shark’s new single ‘Everybody Rise’: Now Streaming
Amy Shark is back with new music today, the first release since her breakthrough album Love Monster topped the charts along with a string of hits.
‘Everybody Rise’ was produced by Taylor Swift’s favourite collaborator Joel Little, and mixed by Serban Ghenea, whose credits include The Weeknd, Katy Perry and Halsey.
Lyrically it’s quintessential Shark, a commentary on worship culture and how society creates idols on social media while losing track of humanity. Vocally, it’s her best effort to date.
“The whole idea of writing a song about unrequited love feels overcooked and everyone’s done it, I know,” Shark admits. “But I don’t feel like anyone’s done it like this before.
“I wanted it to sound like all these broken hearts getting together and being like, ‘We all wonder what it’s like to be with you’.”
The track got its first spin on triple j yesterday, and the 34-year-old fired up all engines and hit the promo trail this morning for breakfast radio interviews.
The cinematic video for ‘Everybody Rise’ was filmed in Nashville and directed by Patrick Tohill, and premiered on YouTube with a live chat this morning.
