Australian songstress GRAACE has released her brand new single ‘21st Century Love’, out now via Sony Music Australia. The release of ‘21st Century Love’, follows the tracks’ premiere last night on triple j’s Good Nights with Bridget Hustwaite.
Describing the track GRAACE says “I grew up surrounded by the love stories of my parents and family friends, and I’ve come to realize that my relationship problems are so different from what they had to deal with when they were growing up. Now days it’s rare to meet someone in a real life situation because we have dating apps and instagram and millions of options at our fingertips, so we find ourselves always looking for the next best thing – rather than committing to what we have.”
Written by GRAACE and Colin Munroe, and produced by Ian Franzino and Andrew Haas, ’21st Century Love’ is the natural follow up to ‘Have Fun At Your Party’, which was released earlier this year. GRAACE’s signature vulnerability and apt for intimate storytelling takes listeners on a heartbreaking journey, with her devastating honesty paired well against dynamic electro-pop production.
GRAACE has spent the best part of 2019 touring both locally and internationally – with shows in Europe (including supports for Tom Walker in Germany), London, Los Angeles and New York; plus sold out shows in both Sydney and Melbourne.
GRAACE’s big break came co-writing and featuring on ‘Numb’, the 2017 track from Australian artist and producer Hayden James which quickly became platinum in their homeland. A left-of-centre pop smash, it showcased GRAACE’s silky vocals which also saw GRAACE join Flight Facilities as a touring vocalist on their 2018 “The Return Flight” tour, playing shows across Australia as well as North America, Europe and New Zealand. It was quickly followed by the singer’s debut single ‘Kissing Boys’, an equally catchy bop that fleshes out a piano base with fluttering synth. Then came her debut EP ‘Self Sabotage’, which has received over 20 Million streams globally and features the fantastic lead single, triple j favourite and ARIA accredited GOLD single ‘Last Night’, which has been streamed over ’14 Million times.
