Ahead of her first ever UK headlining tour, US country music sensation Sarah Darling will release her brand new single ‘Wasted’. The stunning track has been produced by Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Rascall Flatts) and written by Sarah with country hit songwriters Josh Osborne (Kacey Musgraves, Sam Hunt et al) & Marc Beeson (Blake Shelton, LeAnn Rimes).
‘Wasted’ is a heart-felt, poignant reflection of the devastating affects of addiction and the affects it can take on those around the person. Darling premiered the song during her sold out Christmas 2017 concert at St Pancras Old Church, London, where she explained it was possibly the most personal song she had ever written, saying; “’Wasted’ is a track that is particularly personal to me as it deals with the emotional distress addiction causes for everyone. It’s not just the person abusing but also the people around.”
Sarah Darling wrote ‘Wasted’ 10-years ago in Nashville after a family member called her to speak about the break-down of their marriage, but the song has remained unreleased until now, as Sarah explains; “I always felt like it was special but didn’t know what to do with it. Maybe because the subject is so heavy I stopped playing it, but somehow those special tunes always find their way.”
This single also marks an important step in Darling’s career, as it is the first to song to be released from a late-2017 recording session with producer Mark Bright. Speaking about her new music, Sarah says; “I think the new tunes I’ve recorded take you to a deeper part who I am. My road hasn’t always been an easy one and the new music takes you on that journey of honesty and finding strength. I have a lot to sing about when chasing dreams are like climbing mountains.”
And later this Spring Sarah will return to the recording studio with Mark to add the finishing touches to her new LP which will be released later this year. ‘Wasted’ will be released March 2nd and tickets for the hitmaker’s UK tour are on sale now!
Speaking about her upcoming UK tour, Darling says: “I am so excited to return to the UK for a release party of sorts! My newest single is scheduled to release on March 2nd, and I cannot wait to celebrate with my UK fans.”
