She is truly back and she’s been sticking to her time schedule. Ever since Amy Studt dropped her first single of 2019, “I Was Jesus In Your Veins“, she proclaimed that she’ll be releasing a new track once every six weeks, leading up to a full album release. Well, here’s the second single from the collection, which is titled “Let The Music Play”.
Amy Studt hit the UK’s music industry hard in 2003, at just 16. She had three UK top 20 hits with “Just A Little Girl”, “Misfit”, and “Under The Thumb”. Her False Smiles album hit number 18 on the UK Chart. Her fourth single “All I Wanna Do”, a cover version of Sheryl Crow’s hit, spawned a re-release of her debut album. Unfortunately, it only charted at number 21, and she was subsequently dropped from her label. Five years later (2008), she returned with a second album My Paper Made Men which spawned three singles “Furniture”, “Chasing The Light”, and “Nice Boys”. Now, album three has been a long-time coming with plenty of teasers from this British singer-songwriter, we’re excited about this deep dark path she’s taken and cannot wait to hear more new music.
Unlike the previous release, “Let The Music Play” was totally unheard until Clash Music premiered the track on their site. According to Spotify, it has been solely written by Amy Studt, herself.
Listen To Amy Studt’s New Single “Let The Music Play” Here:
This new track is a bit brighter than “I Was Jesus In Your Veins“, whilst being much more stripped back. It has a total jazz feel to it which is the new music route she’s been following lately and her voice is pure perfection with hints of Dodie, Fleurie, and Avril Lavigne – when she sings acoustic ballads. It has some folk vibes flowing through and definitely sounds like a track that was missed off her My Paper Made Men album – gosh that was a beautiful piece of work and we have no doubt the new album will be just as good.
Vocally, Amy Studt is full of control and power, and it’s just mesmerising to listen to this track. The song lyrics are personal, once again, as she sings about going down her own directional music route, and not curbing to what’s popular or what other’s tell her she should sing – she’s done that in the past and it burned her. Now, she’s able to do what she loves in the style that she loves and we’re all loving her music because of it; so, Amy Studt, please continue to let the music play.
“Let The Music Play” is officially available to download and stream right now, via Crocodile Records London. We have another five weeks and three days until she releases her third single from her long-awaited third studio album, and we cannot wait.
