Georgia Lines – Grow Old Without You: 13th Floor New Song Of The Day

Aotearoa’s award-winning artist Georgia Lines has returned with the vulnerable and emotive new single ‘Grow Old Without You’.

Here’s the blurb with more:

This is the second single to be released off Georgia’s forthcoming debut record THE ROSE OF JERICHO, out June 72024.

Georgia LinesA gorgeous, stripped back upright piano expands into lush harmonies and an emotive string section – Georgia’s voice soaring and then hushed; putting on full display her undeniable skill for emotive storytelling through vocal performance. Lyrically, ‘Grow Old Without You’ is vulnerable and honest, yet brave and courageous; interwoven with the string arrangement to create an immersive, magical soundscape.

“For ‘Grow Old Without You’, I wanted to create a world that felt like I was in Alice in Wonderland,” explains Georgia. “I have always been really inspired by orchestral arrangements and often find myself desperate to create moments sonically that would fit into/be inspired by the scene where Alice is singing with the flowers. There are a few moments on my album that fit into this world too.”

Co-written with Grammy-nominated producer Leroy Clampitt (BROODS, Laufey, Six60) in LA, during Georgia’s first writing trip back in November 2022, ‘Grow Old With You’ was then primarily recorded in Aotearoa with Nic Manders at his studio in Kingsland. The breathtaking string arrangement was then done by Claire Cowan, and recorded by the Black Quartet at Roundhead Studios.

Georgia Lines“In the months leading up to recording the album, I had been listening to and watching a lot of old Disney movies – some of which were the very first Disney animations that existed, such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs released in 1937,” says Georgia. “I found myself so drawn to and enchanted by the orchestral string arrangements that would often hold the opening moments of those films, and I was so inspired to bring that feel into parts of the album; ‘Grow Old Without You’ being one of those moments.”

Today’s release is the second single to come from her upcoming debut album, following the heartfelt ballad ‘The Letter’, which was met with huge support from local media, featuring on Rolling Stone AU/NZ, The Edge, ZM, More fm, The HitsSniffers, Coup de Main, Seven Sharp and more.

Georgia LinesGeorgia’s success is not surprising, given her impressive track record. She was named the AMA Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2022, her EP HUMAN topped the Official Top 20 NZ Album chart, and her lead single ‘Faith held the #1 spot on the NZ Airplay Radioscope chart for four consecutive weeks. Her live performances have also received critical acclaim, and she has opened for international acts and performed at various showcases around the world including SXSW, Big Sound and Los Angeles iconic industry showcase, School Night.

This success was complemented by her electrifying showcase at SXSW, leading to her signing with Wasserman Music. The momentum from this event propelled her Spotify streams to an astounding 8 million. Recently, she completed her first US tour supporting Abraham Alexander and is now about to head off again for a 13-date tour across the US supporting Priya Ragu.

Georgia LinesAside from her musical accomplishments, Georgia also hosts a popular music web series called INTROS which is a series in which Georgia introduces her new favourite female and non-binary artists through a relaxed sit-down kōrero. Each episode focuses on the artist’s chosen song, delving into the story behind the song and the process of writing, before treating viewers to a live performance. 2024 INTROS has just kicked off and the first two episodes are live now featuring Ny OhFrankie, and is being hosted on Rolling Stone AU/NZ for the first time!

With her debut album THE ROSE OF JERICHO set to be released on June 7, 2024, today’s single gives another tantalising glimpse of what’s to come. “‘Grow Old Without You’ is such a beautiful reflection of the world that my album lives in,” says Georgia. “Being the opening track of the record, it sets the scene of the journey of the album to come.”
