On November 30 Gabby Young & Other Animals release the stunning new single, ‘Fear Of Flying,’ the latest offering from the critically acclaimed album, ‘One Foot In Front of the Other,’ released earlier this year.
‘Fear of Flying is a personal favourite,’ says Gabby. ‘It’s about being so fiercely independent I refused to let people get involved in my career and life, but I am so thankful I got over that and let people in. Those people have made my life so much better. They help me conquer my fears, which I have too many of – including the fear that I might be scared of flying, which is crazy.’
A hands-down classic in the same vein as Gabby’s ‘We’re All In This Together’ – a fan favourite from her 2010 debut album, ‘Fear of Flying’ is one of the album’s more simple songs. However armed with a beautiful melody and Gabby’s delicate vocals, the song slowly builds with the help of some clever percussion into a soaring torch song, becoming perhaps one the finest moments of her career so far.
And don’t miss the accompanying video, simple and beautiful as the song itself, with Gabby adorned in feathers and frills, singing from a giant bird’s nest…
The album ‘One Foot In Front of The Other’ was released earlier this year to critical acclaim. Following two previous albums, both equally lauded, Gabby Young & Other Animals continue to push boundaries winning over press and fans alike, with praise everywhere from The Guardian Financial Times, The Metro, The Independent, to The Sunday Times, Evening Standard and Daily Mirror.
She also continues to wow with her breathtaking live shows, with a huge following across Europe, Gabby’s spent the summer touring continuously, and now finally returns to the UK & Ireland for three shows throughout November:
Fri 21 November – Dundee Jazz Festival
Mon 24 November – National Concert Hall, Dublin, Ireland
Thurs 27 November – Oslo, Hackney, London
