‘Heartbreak’ is the second single from Amy Barrett
TALENTED 17-year-old singer and musician Amy Barrett from Dunlavin released her second single called ‘Heartbreak’ on Friday.
The single was recorded by Mark ‘Cappy’ Caplice based in Baltinglass and mixed by Cian Sweeney, also known as ‘1000 Beasts’. The song is available on iTunes, Spotify and other digital stores.
Speaking about her latest release, Amy said: ‘ The new single ‘Heartbreak’ is a song inspired by all the teenage drama many girls go through. You see it all the time, from social media to TV. I played it at a recent gig and it went down very well. Releasing a song early in 2019 is a good start to the New Year and will help with my New Year’s Resolution to write a lot more songs’.
She released her debut single ‘Emilio’ back in April as the song raced up the charts, reaching number two in the Irish iTunes singer/songwriter chart.
‘It’s incredible how songs can reach a global audience these days. I was looking at the ‘Emilio’ stats on Spotify this week. It only has 5,000 streams but has listeners worldwide from Ecuador to Japan to Australia. It’s hard to believe for a song that was only publicised in the local Kildare and Wicklow press,’ said Amy.
