Here’s some words from Taylor below:
Is it weird that it’s only hitting me now that Burnt Letters is actually out!?
It’s funny how when you work on something for so long, you have a vision of when the project is finished, but never really know when that last day is coming! Haha but I’m proud to say it’s NOW HERE and Burnt Letters is OUT!
This album is an extension of who I am. It’s extremely personal, and most of all it’s real. Some songs on this album go back way before X Factor such as, ‘Matter of Time’ and of course ‘Host of Angels’.However, there’s others that are very new which I’ve written over the last year, like ‘Already Gone’ and ‘Taking Back’.
I hope this album connects with you the way it does with me. Go tell your friends, your family, and even share this bad boy on your social media 😉 haha it’s now a big part of me and what I hope will be, is a big step forward!
Thanks you guys talk soon!
Taylor Henderson has confirmed the release date of his brand new studio album, BURNT LETTERS, as Friday July 11th, out through Sony Music Entertainment Australia. You can check out a behind the scenes video of the album photo shoot.
In early March, Taylor Henderson released his latest single ‘When You Were Mine’, a beautiful melodic single – co-penned by the young artist – which became an instant hit, racking up a Top 5 position on the ARIA Single Chart and achieving platinum status.
The success of the single set the tone for BURNT LETTERS; an impressive collection of handsome songs that weave together pop and folk styles with an apparent ease. This is further enhanced by song writing that is unashamedly intimate and tender, whilst the melodies are simple and uncomplicated. Taylor’s earnest delivery is buoyant by way of his easy-going charm, and as a result his grounded honesty comes across as distinctively Australian.
Working with an array of producers and co-writers which include Louis Schoorl (Guy Sebastian, 360, Daniel Johns), John Hume from NZ band Evermore (Matt Corby), Alex Hope (Tina Arena), and Lindsay Rimes (The McClymonts), Taylor’s song writing flourished as he relished the collaboration experience.
“There are some songs on the album that were written years ago,” explains Taylor. “Then there are other songs that are fresh and where I’ve tried new things, but at the core of all the songs is me. It all relates to the person I am, and the artist I am. It’s a pure undiluted reflection, and as far as I’m concerned, that’s the only way it should be.”
To celebrate the release of the album, Taylor will be touring around Australia in July and August – head here for more details.
