Amy Shark is back with brand new music, almost exactly two years after the release of her debut album, Love Monster.
Before the tracks release, the singer took to social media to explain the lengthy gap between releases. “I wanted to make sure this next body of work wasn’t just different from the last stuff,” she said. “I wanted it to be better and bigger, and the best that I possibly could do.” Shark continued before adding “The next chapter will define me even more than ‘LOVE MONSTER’ did.”
The Aussie singer has once again collaborated with producer Joel Little on the track Everybody Rise. On the track, Shark sings of unrequited love, and the yearning desperation that accompanies it. The track also comments on the toxicity of “worship culture”. In a press stamenet, Shark describes the song as a “commentary on worship culture, how we create idols on social media while losing track of the humanity right in front of us”. Wanting the track to “sound like all these broken hearts getting together and being like, ‘We all wonder what it’s like to be with you.”
The track was delayed from its original April release due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Shark has also dropped the accompanying music video for the song, directed by Patrick Tohill. Check out the clip below!
