Up and coming singer/songwriter Brandy Clark has revealed another song from her upcoming sophomore album “Big Day in a Small Town”, which is due out Friday, June 10th.
The follow up to the catchy, “Girl Next Door” is a reflective break-up exposition called “Love Can Go To Hell.”
It was her original choice for the first single but after the response the song received on radio to the clever and cheeky “Girl Next Door” she understood why the track made more sense she told Rolling Stone Country…
That was a straight up ballad when I brought it in,” says Clark of the track. “He didn’t change the tempo of it, but he changed the energy of it in a way that makes it feel like a mid-tempo/up-tempo song where people hear it and they’re like ‘Oh my God, that’s amazing, I’ve never heard that.’” But, says Clark, “You have heard it if you know my catalog, you just haven’t heard it like this.”
But she believes if “Girl Next Door” attracts listeners to “Big Day in a Small Town”, it will be songs like “Love Can Go to Hell” (a ballad that reflects the anger and sadness of post–love life) fans will continue to be satisfied by what she is giving them. Produced by Jay Joyce , she gives the song wider range of sound while still keeping the integrity of Brandy’s songwriting.
Clark played the ACM Party for a Cause concert last night in Las Vegas for a “girls night out” and will continue on with the CMT Next Women of Country Tour with Jennifer Nettles.
