UK singer-songwriter Emily Lockett has announced the release of country-pop single Front Porch on 18th September. The track will be available digitally, although a physical EP featuring the song is expected later in the year.
Front Porch is an upbeat country-pop/rock song recounting a break-up, and asking whether each party could’ve done more to save the relationship. This song is an island in the sea of break up songs. It’s neither a revenge anthem nor a ballad of heartbreak, and Lockett’s powerful vocal is both youthful and emotive. The driving guitars move the song along, turning what could be a self-pitying wallow-fest into something intensely, toe-tappingly catchy.
Front Porch was co-produced by Tim Prottey-Jones (Wandering Hearts, The Fatherline) and Matt Bishop (Honey Ryder), who both worked remotely with Lockett through the recent lockdown period.
