Written with Jessica Sharman (Ward Thomas) and mixed by Ash Howes (Ellie Goulding, The Corrs), The Next Time is about finding the courage to tell someone they’ve used up their second chance with you. It combines catchy pop hooks akin to the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen with Austen’s crystalline vocals, country-inspired musicality and a rich storytelling charm to create something truly addictive.
The turning point for Austen came when, aged seventeen, a singing teacher forced her to confront her stage fright and perform in front of her peers. Since then, she has released two EPs independently and has already received support from the likes of BBC Radio 2’s Paul Sexton. Liv has also performed at London’s acclaimed Country2Country festival and now looks set to seduce listeners across the globe with her twinkling, country-tinged pop.
The Next Time, the new single from Liv Austen, is out now via NUA Entertainment and is available to buy and stream here.
