Jasmine Rae unveils new single 'If I Want To'

 

Two-time ARIA nominated singer/songwriter, Jasmine Rae, has released her first single and video today, ‘If I Want To’, from her upcoming third album of the same title due out on August 2, 2013.

The song was written by Jasmine and Nashville songwriting legend, Bob DiPiero, who has also penned hits for innumerable superstars, including Tim McGraw, Brooks & Dunn, Faith Hill and Etta James.

“It’s a song about taking the power back from someone in a relationship who has hurt you,” says Jasmine. “When a relationship ends, there’s often one person who wants to move on and one who wants to hang on. I’ve been both.”

US producer Luke Wooten, whose credits include Dierks Bentley’s’ Home’ and Kellie Pickler’s ‘100 Proof’, produced the track in Nashville. The song shows a more soulful vocal from Jasmine, combined with her signature country sound and an unmistakable element of blues.  

Jasmine admits it has been a while since she released new music. “I feel the songs on my new album are a reflection of the journey I've been on in the last two years. This album is an honest conversation between the listener and myself.”

“This isn’t just the album I wanted to make,” she continues. “It’s the only album I could have made. I personally needed to do this.”

‘If I Want To’ is available now on iTunes through ABC/Universal Music and the music video, directed by Jefferton James, is available to watch here: 

“Making the video was a really interesting experience,” says Jasmine. “It was such a unique concept - showing the last day of a relationship in reverse, starting with my boyfriend walking out on me, back through us fighting, and ending with us in a past moment when we were still happy and content”.

Jasmine Rae is one of Australia’s most acclaimed, multi-faceted, country artists. Her two studio albums, Look it Up’ and Listen Here’, have both received ARIA nominations and yielded multiple #1 hit singles and videos, including a duet with US star, Joe Nichols. She has toured with international superstars Alan Jackson and Brooks & Dunn, and in 2012, was voted CMC Oz Artist of the Year by tens of thousands of music fans. This year, she was awarded America’s prestigious CMA Global Artist Award.


Jasmine has also been at the forefront of fan-driven social media in Australian country music. She recently joined elite stars, Kasey Chambers, Lee Kernaghan and John Williamson, as one of the only Australian-based country artist with over a million plays on YouTube.
