CMT Edge Premieres “Pensive Yet Propulsive” Amelia White Song “Big Blue Sun,” From New Album Old Postcard Out February 18th
In Addition, White Announces 2014 Tour Dates
December 4, 2013 - CMT Edge has premiered the song “Big Blue Sun,” a new track from Amelia White’s forthcoming album Old Postcard, out February 18th on White-Wolf Records. They call it "pensive yet propulsive....White fills out her lonely imagery with chilly harmonies and a weaving, staggering guitar melody." Written with Doug and Telisha Williams of Wild Ponies, “Big Blue Sun” is told from the perspective of a homeless man who dreads the daylight and the masses that flood in with their daily routines of normalcy. White tells CMT “I would hope we can all relate to that wish,” made in the song’s chorus, “to just be back to the innocence of a child, taken care of by the blanketing love of a mother.”
Listen to “Big Blue Sun” here:
White will hit the road next year in support of the new album, full list of tour dates are below.
White, who “trades on elevated melodic sensibilities and intensely contemplative lyrics” (The Tennessean), takes a long look at home, history and family on Old Postcard. There’s a toughness and grit to the record, not just in some of the louder guitars or the world-weariness of lyrics, but also in the way the East Nashville-based singer and songwriter finds hope despite life’s travails and shortcomings. And throughout Old Postcard, the songs fully display White’s ear for truly memorable melodies and hooks.
