Katy J Pearson has announced her debut album, Return, which will be released on Friday November 13th 2020, hand in hand with this truly wonderful news comes a brand new single, Fix Me Up.
Talking about the track Katy said:”Quite an old song now, but it’s still very special to me! It’s very personal and is really about wanting independence in life after messy situations. In times of darkness feeling that pang of loneliness; wanting someone else to be there to help you put all the pieces back together – which I’m sure is something we can all relate too“
The video for the single is directed by Oliver James Robbins and was filmed at the Gordano Valley Riding School.
“This video was such a joy to make, and Cher (the horse) is an absolute queen! It was such a beautiful two days filming; Gordano riding school was so so wonderful. Thanks for letting me live out my cow girl dream!” – Katy J Pearson
WATCH FIX ME UP:
Return symbolises the re-entry of Pearson into music-making after a previous, collaborative project with her brother fell foul of the pressures of a major label record deal and over the course of two-and-a-half years, between her parents’ house in Gloucestershire, her Bristol bedroom, and nearby community arts space The Island, Pearson honed her craft as a solo artist, learning to rely on her creative instincts, and bringing forth an album just as shaped by the South-West of England as the rich musical history of America’s Southern States.
The songs were strengthened and evolved in a live setting — including in support of Olden Yolk and Cass McCombs on their respective UK and European tours — before being taken to the studio of producer Ali Chant (PJ Harvey, M. Ward, Perfume Genius, Gruff Rhys), where they were captured in their final form. The result is a jewel in the dirt by the side of the highway; ten songs which slide effortlessly between lovelorn country, lo-fi folk and glistening, unforgettable pop.
Having completed a European tour alongside Cass McCombs at the end of last year and appeared at both the End of the Road Christmas party and the Line of Best Fit’s ‘Five Day Forecast’, she returns later in the year for a couple of shows at Sound City in Liverpool and Live at Leeds and a run of headline shows in early 2021.
