Amy Shark Carries Weight Of Abandonment In Emotional New Namesake Song  “Amy Shark" Out Today (4.16)

Announces Australian National tour slated for June-July, 2021

Sophomore album ‘Cry Forever’ due April 30th via Wonderlick Recording Company/Sony Music Entertainment Australia/RCA Records

 

Multi ARIA award-winning, singer-songwriter Amy Shark releases her vulnerable and heavy-hearted new song “Amy Shark” today, Friday, April 16th ahead of her ‘Cry Forever’ album due Friday, April 30th

On the new track, Shark draws on the very personal experience of growing up with an absent father and the emotional weight that she carries in her everyday life because of it. She shares this feeling through intimate home videos and scenes from her career in a new video, here: AmyShark.lnk.to/ASV

"The Amy Shark song is a bit of a walk through the highs and lows of the last 15 years of my life,” says Shark. "It was a difficult but necessary song to pen, and I hope it inspires anyone who feels unloved, lonely and sometimes unwanted, to believe that they can achieve anything if they focus.

‘Cry Forever’ is the follow up to Amy Shark’s 2018 #1 ARIA Album Of The Year, LOVE MONSTER and is available to pre-order now via Wonderlick Recording Company/Sony Music Entertainment Australia/RCA Records. Written and recorded between the US, UK, New Zealand and Shark’s home studio on the Gold Coast, her exceptional songwriting is on full display here, co-producing with A-List producers: Dann Hume (ARIA 2018 & 2019 Producer Of The year), M-Phazes (Ruel, Eminem), Joel Little (Lorde, Taylor Swift), Jamie Hartman (Lewis Capaldi, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man), Dan Wilson (Adele, Leon Bridges) and Sammy Witte (Harry Styles, King Princess).

Shark also announced the launch of her ‘Cry Forever’ Australia tour for June and July, hitting major cities like Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and more. 

“It’s been a very hard time for live music, both for artists and fans, with many tours having to postpone or cancel for reasons out of their control,” explains Shark. "This album is very important to me, so making these shows happen is my number one priority. I’m so excited to play my biggest shows to date!”

Tickets are available starting today, Fri., Apr. 16. For tickets and more information visit amyshark.com.
