Liv Austen to release double A side ‘Detour’ and ‘Whole Heart’ on May 17
23 April 2019 news
UK country pop star Liv Austen has revealed that she will be releasing a double A side featuring tracks Detour and Whole Heart, which is set to be released on May 17.
The double A side marks the first release from the Norwegian born artist – who recently supported Sarah Darling on her UK tour – since her debut album ‘A Moment of Your Time’ was released in October 2018. It will be available for physical purchase as a limited edition 7″ vinyl – only available by Austen’s website or at her gigs – as well as being available on all streaming platforms.
Speaking about the two songs – which were placed together to represent a key part of her life – Austen explained that the two tracks are very personal to her with a lot of meaning and that writing the songs gave her a new sense of empowerment.
“Detour and Whole Heart are very special songs to me because they came completely from a place of raw honesty – my mask is totally off in both of them. It’s fascinating to me how vulnerability and strength go hand in hand as much as they do; when I opened up and wrote about something so personal and painful, I felt more empowered than ever.”
Liv Austen will also be appearing at The Long Road Festival this year and will be performing on the Friday (September 6).
