Alex Lahey has announced an expanded edition of her new album The Answer is Always Yes, due for digital release on 6th October 2023 via Liberation Records.
The extended release features three new tracks, including Newsreader which has been released today.
“I remember having the news on at home one night and watching the newsreader broadcast one awful story after another and it got me thinking about the emotional toll it must take on someone to literally be the bearer of bad news to an entire population night after night, day after day,” Lahey comments. “The newsreader that inspired this song, Tamara Oudyn of the ABC 7pm News Report, was the seemingly omnipresent newsreader in my household at the time this song was written. It turned out that there were only a degree or two of separation between Tam and I – next thing you know, Tam popped into the studio and laid down some BVs on this track.”
