Song Premiere: Amelia White, “Old Postcard”
We’re excited to premiere “Old Postcard,” the title track off of singer-songwriter Amelia White’s upcoming album. The song delivers more of the clever and wonderfully dense lyrics White has become known for, set to a melody that inspires a touch of nostalgia.
“‘Old Postcard’ came tumbling out of me on multiple trips back and forth between my home in East Nashville, and my folks home in Virginia last year as they went through some hard times with their health,” White tells us. “Cleaning out their house to help them move to assisted living, I was moved by memories of all we’ve been through as a family, and how intimate I’ve become with them as time has passed.
“I brought all that to John Hadley, one of my favorite co-writers in town, and together we formed it. The line ‘dreams that never will come true are still dreams after all’ really hits me in the gut, and sums up the whole of the parts.”
