Jessica Lynn’s New Single ‘Not Your Woman’ Released August 13th
JESSICA LYNN is delighted to make a double whammy of an announcement, to the delight of her fans who’ve been following her high-quality streaming performances throughout the pandemic and lockdowns and are craving material from the talented, creative country crossover star – not to mention her headline tour The Lone Rider (rescheduled in the UK to May 2022).
Jessica’s livestreams have brought her lively, varied and vibrant music to her fans over the World Wide Web on her Facebook page, and have led to her becoming one of the top-rated livestreaming artists (ranking in Pollstar’s Livestream Top 10).
“Since the pandemic started,” Jessica reflects, “I have been performing piano livestreams every week, where my fans have challenged me to try all different types of music and songs, as well as to approach and rework many of my own songs in totally new ways.”
The experience of reworking her songs and finding new angles and nuances in them turned out to inspire Jessica, on a song-by-song basis, and to put together a special new EP.
“That’s how the ‘Reimagined’ EP was born,” she says, “We felt it was well-suited for the times, and would be an interesting way to present some of my most well-known releases.”
Reimagined will be a 4-song acoustic EP, due out in Autumn. Jessica has chosen to herald the EP by releasing one of the tracks as a single.
“A few months ago, one of my UK fans requested one of my most well-known songs “Not Your Woman” as a ballad, and this reimagined version was literally written on the spot. Everyone in the stream urged me to eventually release it… and here we are. I referred back to that livestream video actually while recording the track to capture my emotion and excitement of the moment and I am so proud of how it came out and also so grateful for this time I have been able to spend at home to be creative and explore opportunities like this. I have never released anything before where I was the only instrumentalist on the track, but I am very excited to share with everyone such an intimate and honest version of myself with this new music.”
The reimagined release reworks the song of infidelity and moving on as an acoustic piano track. The new arrangement wonderfully shows off Jessica’s vocal and emotional range, set to her thoughtful piano playing, which touches on melancholy and sadness but is full of female strength and survival.
It makes for a fascinatingly different take compared to the more brash, up-tempo original version of the song, where you’ll find strumming guitars, a driving beat and a whole lot of sass and grins from Jessica! That’s the alchemy of ‘Reimagined’!
The full release of ‘Reimagined’, including ‘Not Your Woman‘, will be released September 17th via all digital retailers, along with the 4-song mini-concert via VEVO and YouTube.
Great news for fans of this ever-hardworking, fan-pleasing, performance-led star of Country and more!
