BABY ANIMALS FRONT-WOMAN, SUZE DEMARCHI, RELEASES FIRST SINGLE FROM UPCOMING SOLO ALBUM
‘Our House’ by Suze DeMarchi feat. Russell Morris (originally recorded by Crosby Stills Nash & Young) is the first single lifted from SUZE DEMARCHI’S upcoming solo album, HOME, due for release on Friday, 24 July, via Social Family Records.
A song familiar to anyone born in the last half century, ‘Our House’ has been totally rebuilt by Suze DeMarchi, Russell Morris and production maestro, Shane Nicholson. Shaped around the dueting vocals of DeMarchi and Morris, it’s a welcoming and warm song that demands you pour yourself a glass of red and unwind.
“The first thing we had to do was to get rid of the ‘very, very, very fine house,’ lyrics, because I couldn’t sing that,” laughs DeMarchi. “The original just sounded so poppy, we needed to loosen it up a bit.” DeMarchi admits she was “blown away” by Morris’ vocal, which they laid down in Melbourne. “It was just a fantastic experience. He’s a great artist.”
The upcoming release of HOME marks exactly fifteen years since the enigmatic singer’s first solo album and includes a collection of familiar songs about “home”, originally recorded by a diverse set of artists such as Crosby Stills Nash & Young, The Clash, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Sheryl Crow, Adele, Ryan Adams and more. Putting her own unique sound to each song, DeMarchi has teamed up with some other Aussie legends in addition to Russell Morris, including Jimmy Barnes, Diesel, Tex Perkins, Dallas Frasca, and the album’s producer, Shane Nicholson.
HOME by Suze DeMarchi available for pre-order now via JB Hi-Fi, Sanity, and iTunes, with a special Collector’s Edition including a coffee table book and vinyl available exclusively from the SFR Store.
