Gretta Ray releases new track ‘America Forever’ (with Maisie Peters & Carol Ades)
Gretta Ray links up with Maisie Peters & Carol Ades on a stripped-down confessional ‘America Forever.’
Gretta Ray today releases her new track ‘America Forever’ (with Maisie Peters & Carol Ades), lifted from her forthcoming album Positive Spin. On the track, Australian native Gretta Ray describes her love of America quite eloquently.
Here’s Gretta discussing the inspiration behind the track:
“I’ve always felt extra creatively driven as soon as I touch down in L.A. – the energy there permits me to fully believe in myself and the art that I make. On my final day in L.A. last March, I rocked up to a session with Carol and complained to her about having to fly home to Australia. I just wanted to stay in America, forever. The two of us spent the day unpacking this further on the couch in her living room, just us and an acoustic guitar. We also drove through Pasadena and continued writing as we looked out over the city, sparkling in the afternoon sunlight. When a certain place brings out the best version of yourself, it’s hard to leave it behind without feeling like you’re abandoning a piece of yourself. The more creatively liberated I am, the more I feel like me.”
‘America Forever’ is out now.
