Info zu Don't Tell Me That It's Over

Amy Macdonald veröffentlicht die neue EP “Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over”. Die neue Sammlung von Fan-Favorites wird mit der heutigen Veröffentlichung des Titeltracks vorgestellt. Die EP wurde mit Blick auf die Energie ihrer Live-Auftritte neu interpretiert. “Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over” wird im Vorfeld eines großen Tourneesommers veröffentlicht. Neben den 3,3 Millionen Menschen, vor denen Amy bisher in ihrer Karriere aufgetreten ist, kommt ein großes Publikum hinzu.

Der Titelsong “Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over” zeigt, wie sehr Amys Stimme seit der Veröffentlichung der Originalversion im Jahr 2010 gereift ist. Die weniger aufwändige, aber weitaus rauere Produktion verleiht den treibenden Pop-Rock-Melodien eine neue, kraftvolle Wucht. Dieses neue Update von “Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over” findet die perfekte Balance zwischen eindringlichen Melodien und angriffslustigem Biss. Als erste Veröffentlichung von “A Curious Thing” galt die Single ursprünglich als eine rockigere Weiterentwicklung ihrer Folk-Wurzeln.

Amy sagt: “Nachdem ich diese Songs jahrelang live gespielt habe, haben meine Band und ich beschlossen, die Musik ein wenig neu zu interpretieren, ihnen neues Leben einzuhauchen und sie musikalisch mit einigen Titeln meines letzten Albums in Einklang zu bringen. Das Ergebnis ist ein wirklich aufregender und moderner Vibe, und als wir die Songs mit auf Tour nahmen und vor Publikum spielten, kamen sie großartig an, sodass wir beschlossen, sie auf eine Platte zu bringen und mit der Welt zu teilen – daher diese EP!”

Die Karriere der schottischen Singer/Songwriterin Amy Macdonald zählt zu den erfolgreichsten Karrieren einer europäischen Solo-Musikerin im neuen Jahrtausend, mit sechs Millionen verkauften Alben und insgesamt weit mehr als zehn Millionen abgesetzten Tonträgern, mit vier Longplayern, die alle weltweit in die Top 5 der Charts einstiegen, mit mehr als 200 Millionen Spotify-Streams und weltweiten Konzerten vor insgesamt mehr als 3,3 Millionen Zuschauern. Und „Schuld“ an dieser sagenhaften Karriere trägt letztlich ein bestimmter Song der britischen Band Travis mit den Titel „Turn“: Als Amy Macdonald jenen zum ersten Mal bei einem Konzert im Jahr 2000 hörte, entschied die damals gerade 12-Jährige, sich das Gitarrenspielen selbst beizubringen; ursprünglich nur, um diesen Song auch selbst intonieren zu können.

Amy Macdonald

Amy Macdonald
lives a life that's ordinary in every way but one. The 28 year old has sold over 9 million records, conquered Europe and won countless awards. Yet when she arrives at a restaurant in Glasgow to discuss her glorious new album, Life In A Beautiful Light, no one bats an eyelid. Which is precisely how she likes it. 2014 has seen Amy play at the opening of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow with Rod Stewart, play at the Ryder Cup opening ceremony and win Scottish Fashion Icon 2014, as well as headlining sold out shows across Europe. Macdonald has been famous since the age of 18, when she burst in to the charts with a debut album, This Is The Life, that bore the hallmarks of her homeland. Rootsy folk-rock might describe it, or just gutsy pop played on real instruments. There were no tricks or trying to keep up with trends. Live, Macdonald didn't need dancers, props or expensive light shows. Her image was as honest as her songs, in which real tales of real lives became stomping singalongs. Nine years on, Macdonald insists that little has changed. She looks sleeker and dresses smarter, she has bought her own home and the band with which she toured non-stop until the end of 2013 feels like a second family. But when it comes to her job as a songwriter, Macdonald remains a simple storyteller, albeit one with an ear for a magnificent melody and a striking way with words. One song for Life In A Beautiful Light is the heady, air-punching anthem "In The End," which closes the album. It was written at the tail end of Macdonald's last tour, when she found herself questioning whether being a musician was a worthwhile occupation. "It's very rare that I write about myself," she laughs. "But that song is me pondering what I'm doing with my life. My sister's a doctor, she helps people every day. Do I help people? I thought about it and realised that making music is a contribution. I get so many letters from fans saying they feel better when they listen to my songs. So I'm not as bad as I thought!" The other was the sprightly, strings-soaked "Human Spirit," which Macdonald wrote about the Chilean miners' nail-biting rescue. "How could you not be inspired by that story?" she says. "I felt compelled to write about it. I've always been a narrative songwriter, inspired by actual events. Every human emotion was etched on the faces of those miners' families. I went through most of them myself." Macdonald's great gift is not only to capture those emotions in song, but to describe real events in a way that relates to the lives of her fans, be they in Britain or abroad, where her honesty and earthiness has won her armies of fans and seen her sell out stadiums. Life In A Beautiful Light does precisely what the title suggests -- it's a life-affirming set of songs steeped in optimism. Hope seeps from the majestic, shimmering "Across The Nile," a song inspired by Egyptians celebrating the recent downfall of President Mubarak. Joy drives the raucous, rollicking "4th Of July," on which Macdonald recalls a childhood trip to New York with her family on Independence Day. "I was watching the 10th anniversary of 9/11 on the news," recalls Macdonald. "I'm a very emotional person, I could cry at anything. But what I remember about my first visit to New York was watching the fireworks and feeling incredibly happy. So much bad has happened to the city since, but it's still an amazing place. I wanted to write an upbeat song to celebrate New York." A lifelong Rangers fan, Macdonald was twice inspired by football. "The Green And The Blue," which features football crowd chants, is an optimistic ode to the rivalry between Celtic and Rangers. "Football is a big part of my life, of anyone's who lives in this city," says Macdonald. "I have friends who support both teams, all of whom get on. I wanted to say that there is a positive side to the rivalry, not just the bad that folk always focus on." Pride is a classic Macdonald track that 50,000 Scottish football fans will claim as their own. It could be an anthem for the Olympics, but in fact it was penned about the singer performing at Hampden Park. "I've been asked loads of times to sing for the Scotland team," says Macdonald. "I did the whole campaign for the European qualifiers. It's an amazing feeling, so emotional, but I never get nervous. There are 50,000 people singing and you are leading them, literally covered in goose bumps. It's an honour." Heart breaking ballad "Left That Body Long Ago" deals with the devastating disease Alzheimers, from which Macdonald's gran suffered before her death a decade ago. "When my nan was still alive, my mum would always say, 'Don't worry, it's not your nan anymore, she's left that body.' That made it easier for me to deal with. So many of my friends now have relatives with the disease. I wrote the song for them, because it might help. One of them burst in to tears when they heard it. They knew exactly what it was about." Revealing the stories behind the songs is typical of Macdonald. She doesn't want to be oblique, to appear mysterious. She'll happily admit that album opener "Slow It Down" is about nothing more meaningful than her being a petrol head. "I've done track days at Silverstone and at Mercedes Benz World in Surrey," she says. "I adore fast cars. I'm addicted to 'Top Gear.' I've been asked numerous times if I'd like to work towards getting a racing license." The 27-year-old is as full of life as her songs, or perhaps her songs simply reflect her own happiness. She has never felt better about being a singer, and never sung better. Her fans will notice her range on this record -- there are songs, such as bluesy, strings and brass-backed belter "The Game," that she couldn't have attempted in her teens. "I've definitely grown in to my voice," she agrees. "My range has gone crazy, probably from all the touring and singing every night. My voice is much more powerful and I can control it a lot more. I never get sore throats. I can sing higher songs and hit lower notes. "'The Game' is a song I wouldn't have tried to sing when I started out. It's a different style of song for me, but everyone who heard it insisted I include it." Life in a beautiful light was recorded in Surrey with Macdonald's long time producer Pete Wilkinson. There are no-co-writes. Earlier this year, the album was mixed by Bob Clearmountain, who worked on Macdonald's debut. "It's always good to have a man who mixes Bruce Springsteen," says Macdonald, a Springsteen devotee, who now also counts Noah & The Whale and Lana Del Rey among her iPod favourites. "Bob was such a fan that he sent me over all this equipment -- brilliant mics, software and stuff. But I'm such a technophobe, I have no idea how to use them. "I like the simple life. I like songs you can sing along to, songs that say something. Oh, and racing cars. And running in the sunshine, listening to great music. Although living in Glasgow, I'm usually running in the rain."
