Album Release: Amy Shark – Love Monster
Amy Shark has released her highly anticipated debut album Love Monster via Wonderlick Entertainment/ Sony Music Australia.
“Well the time has come! Today I finally get to release my debut album Love Monster into the universe! It’s big, bold and goes deeper than the darkest ocean.” – Amy Shark
Amy’s debut is a beautifully crafted and deeply personal body of work where her strength in songwriting and lyrical empathy shines. Mostly written by Amy Shark and produced by Dann Hume (Courtney Barnett, Lisa Mitchell, Troye Sivan, The Temper Trap), Amy teamed up with a number of industry big names including Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 on ‘Psycho’, Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid, Broods) on ‘Never Coming Back’ and Bleachers front man Jack Antonoff (Taylor Swift, Lorde) on ‘All Loved Up’.
A proud and excited Amy revealed, “Every lyric is real and from my life. If you have ever hurt me, let me down, drove me home, been drunk with me or fallen in love with me – you’ll be on this album.”
Amy’s long and winding path to success has been a lesson in resilience. After years of hard work and determination she is making her mark on the world. Her current single ‘I Said Hi’ has reached platinum sales, 15 million streams globally and 1.5 million video views. In April she took home an APRA award for her 3 x platinum breakout single, ‘Adore’ which has now surpassed 60 million streams globally. Last year she was the winner of 2 x ARIA awards (Best Pop Release and Breakthrough Artist) and her debut EP Night Thinker exploded into the top 10 on iTunes in 15 countries.
In the lead up to release day, Amy has been telling ‘The Love Monster Story’ with a series of short videos: https://bit.ly/2LaLDoQ , documenting the making of the album for Amy Shark fans.
The Queensland singer/songwriter has toured the US five times in the last two years as well as extensive shows throughout Europe. She has played major US TV shows including The Late Late Show with James Corden and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and will be touring extensively across Australia in August/September in what will be her largest Australian headline tour to date before returning to North America from September 21.
