Song Premiere: Amy LaVere, “Runaway’s Diary”
The Artist: Southern songbird and real-life runaway Amy LaVere
The Song: “Runaway’s Diary,” the title track to her new, Luther Dickinson-produced album, out 5/27 on Archer Records/Thirty Tigers.
Fun Fact: Her new album’s already big in England. Mojo gave the record 4 stars, and Uncut gave it 9 out of 10 stars. That’s approaching Beatles territory.
Songwriter Says: “It’s an offbeat song about defiance. It’s about restlessness that leads to recklessness and a general frustration about people being judgmental about your choices.”
