New Music: Edie Carey – The Old Me

Edie Carey is an American country folk singer songwriter who I recently discovered for the blog through her track and live performance video The Chain. Now she’s back with a new one. It’s called The Old Me.

By Graeme Smith

Much like The Chain, The Old Me has an intimate and autobiographical feel to it, exploring the feeling of being a new mother. In it, Edie meditates on themes of renewal and rebirth. As such, the acoustic guitar arrangement is suitably bright and hopeful, though it is tempered by its slow and melancholic percussion.

The Old Me is the second single taken from Edie’s forthcoming album The Veil. You can give the single a listen below.
