Following the success of her first solo-written single ‘You Say', which rocketed to number one on the day of release, Becky Lawrence is set to release new track ‘Maple State’ - which was co-written with Hugh Webber - on Canadian Thanksgiving
Becky Lawrence today announced the release of her new single ‘Maple State’, which will be available to download and stream across all mainstream digital platforms from 12th October 2020 (Canadian Thanksgiving).
The track pays tribute to Becky’s time spent in Calgary (Mohkínstsis), Canada, and acts as an ode to the lakes and mountains she visited while she was there. As a result, Lawrence elected to release ‘Maple State’ on Canadian Thanksgiving to demonstrate their gratitude for the opportunity to experience what the country has to offer.
This is Becky’s second collaboration with songwriter Hugh Webber, who has worked with Platinum songwriters during his time with the Songwriting Academy in London. He has also provided music tracks for advertising projects, ghost-written for European producers on pop songs, and was recently a semi-finalist in the UK Songwriting Competition.
“Canada is the only place in the world, other than the Isle of Man, where I feel at home,” commented Becky. “I have always felt a natural affinity with Canada and was ecstatic to finally have the opportunity to visit and take in the breathtaking, cinematic scenery.” Becky continued, “We’ve chosen to release on Canadian Thanksgiving, because this song is filled with thanks for the experiences I enjoyed, and memories I made when in Canada. Years later, I still vividly remember the emotions I felt during my time there; one thing that has particularly stuck with me is the smell of the pine trees, which is just unreal. For those who don’t know, I am a #GratefulGang leader, and practice the art of the attitude of gratitude every day.” Hugh added, “It was a real pleasure writing this song with Becky. I've not been to Canada but by the end of writing I wanted to go and experience everything in the song myself. I hope it will have the same impression on the listener.” Becky is due to produce the accompanying music video in the weeks following the single launch, with videographer Connor Lewis, though a release date is yet to be agreed. The video will be compiled of personal photos and video footage from the very trip that inspired the song. Attachments area
