Lisburn singer/songwriter Malin, who is now based in Boston, is set to release his new single.
Entitled ‘Not About You’, the single will be released next month, ahead of Malin’s welcome return home for a series of UK gigs.
Not About You, the first single from his forthcoming debut album, provide a taste of what he’s been up to while recording in the music capital of Nashville, Tennessee.
Not About You, with its driving guitar arrangement, was recorded by engineers Joe Baldridge (Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban) and Richard Dodd (Tom Petty, George Harrison, Green Day, Wilco & Melissa Etheridge) with additional production from UK producer Ian Wallman, who has worked with the likes of Michael Buble, UB40 and Calvin Harris.
The record also features a whole host of seasoned musicians including guitarist Corey Wing (Alice Cooper, Kiss), bass player Adam Beard (Carey Underwood) and Miley Cyrus keyboard player Ryan Listerman.
Malin, whose name is inspired by the shipping forecast region just north of Northern Ireland, went to America a few years back and settled in Boston.
There he hooked up with various musicians and in no time was making a name for himself on the local music scene.
Malin recently opened for American Singer-Songwriter Livingston Taylor (brother of singer-songwriter James Taylor) in Cary Hall, Lexington. The gig was a massive success and gained Malin many new fans Stateside.
Now Malin plans to establish a fan-base back in his home country and this single, Not About You is the first step on that journey, with an EP to follow in spring and an album later in the year.
