Amy MacDonald – ‘Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over’

A new collection of fan favourites which have been reimagined with the energy of her live performances

Amy Macdonald will release the new EP ‘Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over’ on July 8th. A new collection of fan favourites which have been reimagined with the energy of her live performances in mind, the EP is previewed with today’s release of its title track. The EP is released ahead of a major summer of touring, which will see Amy add to the 3.3 million people she has so far performed to throughout her career. Pre-save the EP HERE.

The lead track ‘Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over’ shows how much Amy’s voice has matured since the original version was released in 2010, while the production, less intricate but far more raucous, allows its driving pop-rock melodies to take on a powerful new momentum. Originally considered a rockier progression from her folk roots when released as the first single from ‘A Curious Thing’, this latest update of ‘Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over’ finds the perfect balance between insistent melodies and belligerent bite.  Listen HERE.

Amy says, “Having played these songs live for years on the road, my band and I decided to reimagine the music a little bit, give them a new lease of life, and bring them into line musically with some of the tracks from my latest album. The result is a really exciting and modern vibe, and when we took them on the road and played them in front of an audience they got a great response, so we decided we wanted to put them down on record and share them with the world – hence this EP!”

The EP also features a fresh take on ‘Run’, from Amy’s all-conquering triple-Platinum #1 debut album ‘This Is The Life’.  The new version sees Amy raising the dramatic intensity from the original’s contrasting dynamics. ‘Slow Down’ is perhaps the biggest reinvention of the set, now feeling like a blend between Amy’s love of Springsteen’s heartland rock and the sparkling synth undercurrent of The War on Drugs. ‘Slow It Down’ was first released as the lead single from Amy’s 2012 #2 album ‘Life in A Beautiful Light’.

The three songs that Amy chose for the EP are long-term standout moments from her live show. They’re also firm favourites, having accumulated 75 million streams between them.
