Samantha Fish has dropped the video for her new track, Better Be Lonely, the third single from her forthcoming studio album, Faster.
Better Be Lonely treads a line between the sounds of Fish’s previously released pop-rock monster, Twisted Ambition, and the rootsier Crowd Control, blending a bag of classic ‘Stones-style licks and tones with a soulful vocal performance.
“[It's] about putting someone on ice,” says Fish of the track's meaning. “Where you’re telling them: ‘I don’t want you right now, but when I am ready to have you, you better be there.’”
Although Fish wrote and recorded Faster with multi-instrumentalist/producer Martin Kierszenbaum and some stellar studio talent (including drummer Josh Freese), the video is a nice showcase of Fish’s own band, which includes bassist Ron Johnson, drummer Sarah Tomek and keyboardist Matt Wade.
The group will be hitting the road shortly in support of Faster – starting off with a set in Steamboat Springs, Colorado on September 5 and playing across the US until late December. There will also be a UK and Europe stint to follow in the new year.
Faster is set for a September 10 release via Rounder Records. You can preorder the album here (opens in new tab), and check out its cover art and track list below.
