Marking a new era for the talented Australian singer, today Starley releases her vibrant new single ‘Lovers + Strangers’ on Central Station Records. The captivating record (produced by Swedish duo NOTD and mixed by Tom Norris, famous for his work on Zedd ‘The Middle’ & Katy Perry’s ‘Never Really Over’) addresses the disconnect that can be felt as a long-standing relationship comes to a natural end, whilst sonically, Starley’s rich melodies shine through on what is a grand return to the upbeat electro-pop summer vibes for which she’s become known and adored.
“It’s funny how as a kid, you picture the most perfect world for yourself as a grown up. Thinking you’ll do all the right things when you fall in love. Then life happens and all the uncertainty that comes with it. And then one person who knows you better than anyone else, your lover and best friend, suddenly isn’t any longer; you wanna reach out to say hey, but you can’t because that would break the rules… You both have separate lives to lead. I guess we’re supposed to be strangers now…” – Starley
Continuing to write from the heart, Starley has gone on to release ‘Love Is Love’ – a powerful song championing acceptance and equality, ‘Touch Me’, ‘Signs’, ‘Been Meaning To Tell You’, and a collaboration with Showtek, MOTi and Wyclef Jean on the reggaeton inspired ‘Down Easy’.
Starley’s ‘Lovers + Strangers’ is out now on Central Station Records, in conjunction with Universal Music.
