Roseanne Reid Shares New Single ‘Fly High’
Scottish singer and songwriter Roseanne Reid has shared emotive cut ‘Fly High’, the third single taken from her upcoming EP ‘Horticulture’, set for release on April 10th, via Last Man.
Talking about the song, Roseanne revealed, “‘Fly High’ was written after the sudden loss of a friend. I wanted to tread the line between processing and articulating my own feelings, and remembering him purely for who he was and what he gave to the world. The song could have gone either way – in the end I felt the best way to honour him is to write what came most naturally to me and sing it in the way it came out in the first couple of takes.”
Entirely written and home-recorded during lockdown by Roseanne herself with Graham Coe on cello and mixed by The Who and Manic Street Preacher’s producer Dave Eringa, ‘Fly High’ is the follow up to ‘You Underestimate Me’, which premiered on BBC Scotland’s Another Country with Ricky Ross last December and the recently released ‘Tentsmuir Sky’.
Lockdown and cancelled tours in 2020, saw Roseanne perform series of popular live streams from her garden. Inspired by her interest in horticulture, she enrolled in a degree course whilst also learning music production and recording techniques. These two new skills created the basis for the forthcoming EP ‘Horticulture’, a four-track collection of new songs due for release as a special edition vinyl in April 2021. Last year Roseanne was nominated for Song Of The Year at the UK Americana Awards for ‘Amy’, this year Roseanne played an exclusive live streamed show during the AmericanaFest UK.
Opening for Teddy Thompson in 2022, Roseanne will support his 12 dates tour starting at Glasgow’s Oran Mor on 21st January 2022, touching London’s Earth Theatre on 28th January, before ending at Manchester’s Band On The Wall on 3rd February –more info and tickets here.
