North-East Singer-Songwriter Elaine Palmer drops her brand new single, Just One. The track is taken from her forthcoming third album, The Land and is an anthemic electro-country offering with absorbing instrumentation and rich, heartfelt vocals, reminiscent notes of Stevie Nicks. Also, if you’re a fan of dirt-biking, then check out the video that accompanies it.

Here, the artist herself tells us about what inspired the track…

Just One is the latest single from my upcoming album The Land In Between out on Butterfly Effect. The track was recorded in my music room at home featuring some wonderful musicians, HJM Bradshaw on cello, Olli Heffernan on bass and Alex Cromarty on drums. We recorded as much as we could live to give it that raw honest feel as the backbone of this track. I love recording vocals, it’s my favourite part. I feel I can really play around with my voice and use it to create sounds around the main vocal line.  Patrick Jordan mixed and mastered the full album, really bringing it to life!

 Just One is edgy and electric Americana yet emotive vocally. It explores concepts of individuality, finding your own voice and standing out from the crowd. I wanted to capture this rebellious theme in the video too. We worked with a team of display dirt bike riders, using drone shots of them over head and close up footage of their stunts. We had such fun shooting up on the moors at dawn…..these are the things we do to remind ourselves we are still alive.
