Australian country singer-songwriter Missy Lancaster today releases her EP MISSY, through Sony Music Australia. This is Missy’s first release through the label, having originally released the six song set independently in January this year, where it debuted at #9 on the ARIA Country Album chart.
The video for first single ‘That’s What I’m Talking About’ is also out now. The infectious country-pop track has already amassed over two months on The Music Network Official Top 20 Country Airplay Chart and was the #1 most played song on the KIX Country Radio network which hits over 40 cities around Australia.
Missy travelled to Nashville in October 2015 to write and record the EP with acclaimed songwriter & producer Lindsay Rimes (credits include Troye Sivan, The McClymonts, LoCash). The end result was a mix of songs co-written by Missy including “Don’t Wanna Say Goodnight” (written with Morgan Evans) and songs from some of Nashville’s top songwriters. “I love writing songs,” says Missy, “And I also love the challenge of taking a song by another writer and making it my own. The songs on Missy really suit where I’m at. I’m twenty-one. I’m having fun and my heart is definitely not broken (laughs). These songs. They showcase my personality.”
Missy’s sense of fun comes across in spades in the music video for ‘That’s What I’m Talking About’ which was shot on location in Sydney and Nashville. The video shows Missy in the studio writing and recording and having fun on location of a photo shoot. The studio is a place where Missy is spending more and more time as she writes for her first full length album release.
Missy has also been spending more and more time on the road, performing close to 100 shows in the last 18 months and with new dates being added to her tour diary all the time. Missy will re-launch the EP at the Tamworth Hats Off to Country Festival and will also make her debut appearances at iconic events including Gympie Muster and Deni Ute Muster in the coming months.
