Award-winning British vocalist and songwriter, Rumer will release new single “Hard Times For Lovers” on February 28th, one of the stand out tracks from her much-anticipated album, Nashville Tears(Cooking Vinyl) whichwill debut worldwide on April 24, 2020. Pre-order now from the official store (HERE).
Of the track, Rumer comments: “"Hard Times for Lovers was originally a hit for Judy Collins in 1979. What I really like about this song is how it has a retro 70’s country feel yet the lyrics are still relevant today."
Rumer has long been enamoured with the storytelling of country music. While living in the American South, away from the international spotlight, Rumer’s passion for musical discovery led her to Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer, Hugh Prestwood’s work. His songs were the catalyst for Nashville Tears; fifteen of the songwriter’s finest gems, including several never recorded until now.
Those who revelled in This Girl’s in Love (Bacharach & Hal David) and Boys Don’t Cry (songs by male songwriters of the ‘70s) once again benefit from her exquisite taste on Nashville Tears.
Rumer’s 2010 Seasons of My Soul was one of the top-charting debuts of the 2010’s. Certified platinum (UK & Ireland), it earned her a MOJO Award for Best Breakthrough Act and kicked off a career that has brought praise for Rumer’s own songwriting and “ear” for the songwriting genius of others.
