Emma Russack announces ‘In a New State’, set for release June 10


Melbourne singer-songwriter Emma Russack has a habit of releasing albums every two years. Lucky for us, 2016 is well underway and album number three is ready to be unveiled. ‘In a New State‘ follows on from ‘You Changed Me‘ (2014) and ‘Sounds Of Our City‘ (2012). The album draws a slight yet significant change in approach with a new producer (John LeeMountains In The Sky, Beaches, The Ocean Party), a proper studio and Emma taking back the guitar reins.
The independence Emma gained during the recording process is reflective in the songs, too. They’re about becoming strong and self-reliant. And resilient. And they’re about memories. Says Emma “Memories of me floating on my back in the ocean at Cottesloe, Perth, and feeling free. Walking through Melbourne CBD and realising how I finally feel at home. Thinking about my future and deciding to save up for a house in Mystery Bay on the South Coast of NSW.”
Prior to the albums release, Emma will support Alex Gow and Dan Kellyon the Australian Dreamers tour across the country this May. First single “My Own Friend” (which premiered on Noisey today) sinks into your skin like a Cat Power song from the early 2000’s and will leave you wanting more.
