The new single is set to feature on Naimee’s forthcoming album The Edges coming out later this year.
Despite Naimee Coleman's rich history in the music industry, the singer has released a limited amount on streaming platforms, so it's incredibly exciting to hear her cover of the well-known and loved Joy Division's 'Love Will Tear Us Apart', which dropped today.
A stripped back approach to the iconic track, the track perfectly showcases Naimee's angelic vocals. The simple instrumentation works magnificently well, highlighting the deeply poignant lyrics of the '80s track.
Speaking about the new release, the singer said: “Sad songs have always been my favourite songs and ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ is such a heart-wrenching, honest and beautiful sad song. I’ve been performing it live over the last year at gigs and have seen how the song resonates with people”.
The new single is set to feature on Naimee’s forthcoming album The Edges coming out later this year. The Edges is a collection of "sometimes gritty, often melancholic, but always deeply personal songs."
Coleman signed with EMI Records in her late teens, recording her debut album at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. For Bring Down The Moon, her sophomore release, the singer worked with Ian Stanley, the keyboardist for Tears For Fears, creating a blend of singer-songwriter pop that propelled her into a whirlwind few years.
The artist toured extensively both as a headliner and opening act for the likes of Van Morrison, David Gray and Suzanne Vega. This earned her numerous award nominations; a sizeable Japanese fanbase to go with her European one; and the opportunity to appear on the fabled British TV show Top Of The Pops as the featured vocalist on Aurora’s Top 5 re-imagining of Duran Duran’s ‘Ordinary World’.
Relocating to Los Angeles in 2004, Naimee embraced the chance to start from scratch in the California music scene. While there, Naimee fell in love, got married, wrote mountains of new music and toured the length and breadth of the country.Returning to her singer-songwriter roots, Naimee wrote both for herself and other artists, with her music featuring in numerous films and TV shows for Disney, Warner Brothers and CBS. She performed as a solo artist and also as a backing vocalist for various musicians, including the Bee Gees' Robin Gibb, whom she toured with as a backing singer in the US and Europe.
After returning to Ireland, adventures in motherhood put her music career into the backseat, but she is now excited to be back writing and recording. Having found her live feet again performing solo shows as well as opening up for Gemma Hayes most recently, Naimee is incredibley excited to tour her upcoming album, The Edges.
