Following her previous single Get Wild, Donna Marie brings This World to the table. This World is different from the typical country music subject matter, says Donna. The lyrics highlight many of the problems created by humanity. The song was recorded during lockdown and showcases Donna not only as a fantastic singer-songwriter but as a talented multi-instrumentalist and producer.
This World is heavily guitar-driven, and Donna’s mature, earnest vocal delivery tugs at the heartstrings. It’s not as simple as a criticism of the way we’ve treated our planet. It’s a desperate plea to do better and to make amends. It could be an allegory for a fractured relationship or broken friendship – that’s the power and relatability of Donna’s writing. This song could be easily interpreted to suit almost anything you want it to.
As a member of THE SONGS AND STORIES COLLECTIVE alongside Tennessee Twin and Sarah Yeo, Donna released a cover of Humble and Kind during lockdown. Get Wild was chosen as record of the week by Country Radio UK and Nashville Sessions on Jorvik Radio. It also featured on our Girls’ Night playlist.
