TRACY MCNEIL & THE GOODLIFE DELIVER NEW SINGLE STARS

STARS IS THE 1st SINGLE FROM THE UPCOMING ALBUM YOU BE THE LIGHTNING, DUE FOR RELEASE IN 2019.
SINGLE LAUNCH DATES ANNOUNCED FOR SYDNEY, NEWCASTLE & MELBOURNE

Stars is the sparkling new single from Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife – the first from the 5-piece outfit’s upcoming full length album, You Be The Lightning, scheduled for release in 2019. Picking up at full speed from where they left off with Thieves, their 2016 award-winning release, this new material continues to draw from classic rock, pop and alt country influences, whilst simultaneously broadening their sonic palette to produce a shimmering style of Indie Americana.

In May, the band set up shop in Melbourne’s Aviary Recording Studio with engineers Fraser Montgomery and Nick Edin to begin work on the album. Co-produced by Dan Parsons and Tracy McNeil, Stars became a flagship for the shinier, more contemporary pop sound the band were striving for, whilst still retaining the emotional depth and intelligence fans of McNeil’s music have come to love.

After recording lead vocals with engineer Jake Rush at Madeline Studio, Stars was then sent across the Pacific to ‘The Duck’ in East Nashville, where it was mixed by Jordan Lehning (Rodney Crowell, Caitlin Rose, Jordie Lane, Robert Ellis, Henry Wagons and Willie Nelson), who added his own brand of cosmic stardust.

To mark the release of the single Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife have booked a short but sweet run of dates for November:

I watch you through a telescope
To get the details right
But you’re moving too fast
You blur then you’re out of sight
So I check in with the cosmos
To see what they have to say
“If you’re holding onto something that isn’t yours
It’ll only slip away”
They say it’s written in the stars
