New Country

C#m A F#m B

All these signs through all these years,
have you really thought, they would disappear.
All these hints through all of this,
have you really thought, that you could ignore.

E A D E

Now you finally got the chance to
finally go the way you
always were supposed to.

D A F#m E

New Country, three chords and the truth, let´s go
New Country, cause it never gets old.
New Country, whatever you may find, let´s keep
New Country always alive.

Through all these fears we already passed
and through all these hopes, that will last at last.
Through all this peace, that we lost and found
And through all the love, that may come out of.

Now you finally got the chance to
finally go the way you
always were supposed to.

New Country, three chords and the truth, let´s go
New Country, cause it never gets old.
New Country, whatever you may find, let´s keep
New Country always alive.

WOW what a fantastic song. Your vocal is outstanding and your backing tracks and mix were perfect. IMHO this is as good as anything on country radio today.

To nitpick that only thing that I found distracting was the abrupt ending. Maybe a fad out would be better. YMMV

Fantastic!
Love the melody, the band, the lyrics and of course the vocals.
Such a a pure and clear delivery of the lyrics.
So Good!


Feedback:
I hesitate to suggest you do anything to change this, however.....
I'm listening on headphones and the bass sounds a little overpowering.
Could be just bas heavy phones, I'll give it a listen in the studio later, I'm sure it will sound even better there.

Loved this song. I'm listening on good quality earpads and the bass is perfect for me. Agree with Mario that a fade out might be better at the end ?

Nice arrangement.
The vocal seems a little distant or disembodied.
Did you throw a heavy high pass filter on it as there seems no lower mids or bottom end on the voices?
It's even more so when the heavy drum beat comes in and takes up so much of the bottom end - especially in the chorus, (sounds like the vocals are next door and the drum kit is in the listening room.

I like it. It tells a story and the melody is strong enough to carry the storytelling. Excellent - well done.

Rebecca,

Cool tune! Like the prosody on this—the repetition of both words and notes that give the song a strong structure (e.g., “all” in the first two verses). Really good vocal with some nicely mixed in harmonies. “Three chords and the truth”—great line. Nice internal rhymes in the pre-chorus as well. Definitely in ear worm territory with this. Well done!

All my best,

Deej

Very well recorded, sounds like it's radio ready now. It did take me by surprise on the ending, but that's "New Country"!!

Great song. You remind me of the singer in 10,000 Maniacs. Great lyrics. The melody is catchy. Good one. Good use of BIAB too.

Very nicely done!! Really well written and performed!! From my perspective, I would EQ the vocal to increase the Lo freqs a bit to add a bit more body to the vocal and maybe turn the highs down just a bit. Very good stuff!! Take care. Greg

Hi Rebecca ...

What a wonderful song! I particularly enjoyed the dramatic differences in the drums. Every time they came in with the power parts, it totally refreshed the dynamics of the performance and listen. I do agree with Greg about possibly adding just a little more EQ on the vocal.

And speaking of vocals, the harmony was so nice and your voice is a very pleasant listen. And the unexpected ending was a very nice surprise.

Happy Holidays to you and yours from both of us.

Alan Di

Missed this the first time around!

I recall hearing one of your prior songs, and it's got the same sort of professional feel to it. Solid writing, excellent ear for pop, well-done vocals. smile

I agree with what others have said about the ending - it just sort of... ends. Which feels like a downer, and really goes against the thesis of the song. It leaves me feeling down, instead of powered by "New Country".

Your vocals are excellent, they're a bit "overcooked" - too bright and fatiguing to listen to.

Similarly, there balance between the instruments and the vocals feels off - I feel like I want to turn the volume up to hear the instruments better, but the vocal is plenty loud.

None of which is to imply the song isn't good or I didn't enjoy it - see the second paragraph! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
