Western Suburbs Weekly - - Music -

PERTH soul singer Shameem has re­leased new sin­gle Un­der One Sun ahead of her sopho­more al­bum, The Sec­ond City, due out Jan­uary 16.

The singer said her lat­est al­bum was about over­com­ing prej­u­dice, bro­ken trust and for­give­ness, thank­ful­ness and grati- tude in the face of dif­fi­cul­ties.

She will cel­e­brate the re­lease of her 15-track al­bum with a na­tional tour be­gin­ning on Satur­day, Jan­uary 17, at Su­bi­aco Arts Cen­tre. Shameem said she was ea­ger to hit the road and would bring a new life and en­ergy to her songs.

“We stretch out the song ar­range­ments and I like to let my band mem­bers im­pro­vise and rein­ter­pret them,” she said.

“I love chat­ting to the au­di­ence, so I tell all the sto­ries about what in­spired me to write the songs and the mean­ing be­hind the lyrics.”
