This Monday, Gabby Young And Other Animals release their new single ‘Walk Away’ from their highly acclaimed second album, ‘The Band Called Out For More’.
‘Walk Away’, Gabby’s first song written on piano, builds to a celebratory horn-infused climax: ‘I woke up one morning at 6am,’ she says, ‘and this came out, lyrics and all, in 5 minutes. It was something I really needed to say to my Dad.’ It’s very different from last single ‘In Your Head’ which allowed fans to connect with the upbeat party tempo of the first album ‘We’re All In This Together.’
And don’t miss the heart-wrenching new video, directed by Gabby’s partner and producer, Stephen Ellis. Filmed on location in the depths of Hampstead Heath, the video features Gabby’s actual father, Edward, alongside a captivating performance from Gabby. “I wanted to make a real and emotional video,” says Gabby. “This song is a message for my Dad and I am so pleased that he could be in it. I found the whole experience of shooting and now watching it back very moving.
Gabby’s first album ‘We’re all In This Together’ was released in 2010 receiving positive write-ups by many of the UK’s major newspapers, including The Guardian, The Sunday Times and the London Evening Standard, with The Guardian even naming the band in their “Anti-tips for 2010: the acts who deserve to be heard.’
