Angus Gill And Americana Legend Steve Earle Team Up For A Stellar Duet
Award winning singer-songwriter, Angus Gill, teams up with friend, US music legend, Steve Earle, for a stellar Outlaw Country duet, “The New Old Me”.
Written by Gill and Allan Caswell, the song speaks of transformation. “I’ve had a flair for screwing up, as most of you’d agree/Welcome to the new old me” Earle admits, while Gill credits Earle, “you told me to toughen up and buddy that’s just what I did”.
Earle first met Gill several years ago at his writing retreat in New York, intrigued by a promising (then) 16-year-old Australian singer-songwriter. The two have been friends ever since and Earle introduced Gill to members of Paul Kelly’s band, while on PK’s 2018 Life Is Fine Tour. Gill approached the band a year later to track a new album project and by December 2018, Angus Gill & Seasons of Change “3 Minute Movies” came to fruition.
“It was thanks to Steve that this project was possible, as he introduced me to PK and the band. I had a bunch of songs I had written, which didn’t fit on my traditional Country album (Welcome To My Heart) and after listening to “Life Is Fine”, I had an ‘aha” moment. I got in touch with Dan Kelly and soon the whole band was involved and we had a studio booked to make a record. “The New Old Me” was a song I wrote with my mate, Allan Caswell. I had the title and a feel for the song. I felt it could be an idea I could sing with Steve. Thankfully I sent him the track and he loved it”.
“The New Old Me” is the third single lifted from Angus Gill & Seasons of Change, “3 Minute Movies”, which is out September 25 on Rivershack Records / MGM Distribution.
