Jamie McDell inks record deal with ABC Music ahead of new single

New Zealand-born singer-songwriter Jamie McDell has signed a record deal with ABC Music.

McDell’s signing coincides with the impending arrival of her new single ‘Dream Team’, which is scheduled for release on Friday August 6.

Produced by Australian producer Nash Chambers (Kasey Chambers, Paul Kelly), McDell says that ‘Dream Team’ was written while “sitting on the bathroom floor of my partner’s boss’s apartment”, with the 28-year-old artist penning the track after watching the final episode of Netflix’s Chernobyl. 

“I wouldn’t say this song was inspired by the tragic events that took place in 1986, but the devastating stories paired with a social media post by some local popular boys with the caption ‘Dream Team’ had me questioning who we aspire to be like, and the hands that we choose to place our families lives in,” McDell said of the new single.

‘Dream Team’ will also act as the lead single from McDell’s upcoming album, tentatively scheduled to arrive in 2022.

Basil Cook, senior label manager for ABC Music, welcomed McDell to the label’s roster and touted her talents as a songwriter.

“Jamie has an incredible voice and oozes natural talent for writing amazing songs,” Cook said.

“She has already achieved so much in her career for someone still so young. The album is remarkable, and we are so excited for what is to come next!”
