Beth Nielsen Chapman Announces New Single & Yorkshire Dates

Two-time Grammy nominee Beth Nielsen Chapman returns with her bluesy new single Hey Girl, her first new music in over four years, and the first taste of her upcoming 15th album, CrazyTown, out September 23rd on Cooking Vinyl (Pre-order)

With a career spanning nearly 40 years, Beth proves she’s still as vital as ever with the first single from the album – Hey Girl an anthemic reaction to the Me Too movement, a song Beth calls her “celebratory shout out to our sisters making their way in the world.”

Beth Nielsen Chapman: “We were talking about the capacity for survival and overcoming the challenges that are part of being in the world as a female, balancing strength and vulnerability. As the writing of the song progressed, we touched on feeling lost, being taken advantage of, and navigating one’s safety and the experience of not being taken seriously.”

Produced by legendary producer Ray Kennedy (Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle) and co-written with hit songwriter Annie Roboff and the UK’s Jessica Sweetman, Hey Girl blends elements of classic rock, blues and pop to great effect, demanding attention with its addictive chorus and Beth’s effortless vocal. It’s a welcome return for this acclaimed singer songwriter and a bold introduction to the forthcoming new album. 
 
Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2016, Nashville based Beth Nielsen Chapman has released fourteen solo albums and written seven #1 hits and songs recorded by the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Bette Midler, Elton John and Neil Diamond, plus many more.
