Hear what Vanessa herself has to say about her new single “Heavy Lies The Head” and touring as she chats to STM’s Casper here
This is HEAVY LIES THE HEAD, the breathtaking, emotional and long-awaited new song from iconic Australian singer Vanessa Amorosi.
“Boy you’ve got to be pretty blind
Not to see the signs
You started up a fire
Now you know I’m gonna burn it down
You’ve been underestimating every single part of me.”
Vanessa Amorosi delivers HEAVY LIES THE HEAD with a performance for the ages, her powerhouse voice bursting to be heard once again in a song that’s sure to be talked about.
HEAVY LIES THE HEAD is cutting-edge and controversial by Vanessa’s own admission on where much of today’s music sits in 2019.
I never thought you go back on your promise
You always said you would show me what love is.
You’ll never find a better love .. no ..You’ll never find a better love
It’s clear that Vanessa is singing HEAVY LIES THE HEAD with the honesty of experience formed since her early years as a singer-songwriter when she burst onto the airwaves at the time of the Sydney Olympics.
Baby, living in the world that you created Sleeping in the bed just how you made it Heavy lies the head
Tell me what you did
Baby, You can keep the mess that you created Nobody can get back what they wasted.
It’s been close to a decade since we last heard a new solo track from Vanessa Amorosi and the release of her last album, the platinum- selling Hazardous, which featured Vanessa’s number one smash hit, “This Is Who I Am”.
Heavy Lies the Head is a true rock song and something that Vanessa has been wanting to release her whole career and is confident it will be her most successful yet.
Boy I hope you’re happy now cause this is all you’re gonna get
You thought you’d get away it but now you know I won’t forget
Telling me that I’m beautiful but lie to me so easily
You know your just a coward and the truth will out eventually
Vanessa moved to Los Angeles in 2011 to begin that journey of self-discovery and develop her music career in different ways and immersed herself in all kinds of musical experiences. She became obsessed with exploring the real roots of her first and greatest musical love — gospel. Vanessa is now a familiar face on the local live scene, regularly performing alongside the best musicians in the world.
Vanessa promises a collection of new songs that will be very diverse – rocks tracks, dance tracks and a power ballad which will all be released in coming months Vanessa’s A-list collaborators on her growing song collection include Sweden’s Aleena Gibson (Jason Derulo, Nick Carter) and Trevor Muzzy (Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga), as well as Jon Levine (Drake, Dua Lipa), Jordan Palmer (Andy Grammar, Lights), Louis Schoorl (Tina Arena, 5 Seconds Of Summer), and Levi Lennox (ZAYN, M.I.A.).
It’s incredible to think it’s almost 20 years (and over 2 million sales worldwide) since a teenage Vanessa Amorosi from outer-eastern Melbourne burst onto the Australian charts with her debut number one album The Power, which featured four massive hit singles: “Have A Look”; “Absolutely Everybody”; “Shine”; and “The Power,” and who stole the show at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, seen by an estimated 4 billion people.
Fortunately for everyone, Vanessa is heading back out on the road joining John Farnham, Daryl Braithwaite, Jon Stevens, Thirsty Merc and Dragon on the Red Hot Summer tour across the country through until April, and there will be some special shows with mentor and mate Jon Stevens, and then some solo shows in May.
