Scarlette Fever Returns With Free Download 'Where’s The Fun?'

Thursday, 25 April 2013 Written by Jon Stickler

Acclaimed singer-songwriter Scarlette Fever returns this week with a free download of 'Where’s The Fun?' – the first taster of her brand new material, set for full release later this year.

Concerning the frustrations of life’s more mundane moments, 'Where’s The Fun?' is co-written with her  guitarist Chris Moorhead, and actually based on a chorus he originally wrote six years ago. As Scarlette explains:

“In a way it's one of my most sentimental songs, about a time in our lives when we were both in mundane jobs, going out a lot and having to go to work, hung over. Chris was at Tesco’s Headquarters at the time and when you hear the track you'll know exactly what he thought of that. I knew then and there that I had to help him finish it. Six years later and here we are!”

After almost a year since her 'Great Expectations' EP, out last April, 'Where’s The Fun?' is part of a new collection of songs set for release this summer, showcasing a more mature, full bodied sound. Other highlights include the epic 'Piece Me Back Together', '6ft Woman' (her take on addiction and the lies and manipulation that usually comes with it), and the heart-wrenching ballad 'Sunday Best' co-written with Steve Lironi (Bon Jovi). Speaking about the new material, Scarlette says:

“It’s the result of a combination of things. My writing ability has developed, as has my knowledge in production. I’ve also been collaborating more with my band. So the whole process has been much more organic and spontaneous – and creative.”

For Scarlette, the last ten months have been about solid songwriting, playing live, and working with inspirational musicians, a lot of which has been done in the States. First heading to LA last April to perform at MUSEXPO and theWorldwide Radio Summit, Scarlette returned a few months later to play for US TV Networks, at a sold out Viper Room in Hollywood, whilst her final trip came in December to perform at The Hard Rock Café, Hollywood and to work with Oliver Leiber (The Corrs, Beth Hart). Scarlette is also thrilled to be invited back to perform at this year’s upcoming MUSEXPO and Worldwide Radio Summit, once again taking place in LA next month.

Scarlette describes her time there as intense, confusing, exciting and amazing in equal amounts, and picks collaborating with brothers  Tommy and Davey Faragher as a highlight. Having worked with a who’s who of heavy weights, including Elvis Costello, Al Green and Dusty Springfield, the brothers invited Scarlette into their studio to work for two days straight on vocals, instruments, backing vocals and production on the songs 'PS I Hate You,' and 'Where’s The Fun?' “Their professionalism was astounding,” says Scarlette. “They definitely left their mark.”

Back on her home turf, Scarlette’s been busy in the studio with Julian Emery (Lissie, Newton Faulkner) and playing live at the likes of Smooth Radio’s Liverpool Docks show. Previous collaborations with Julian include the debut single “Crash & Burn” which sailed straight onto the BBC Radio 2 B-list, and reached #2 on the Billboard Breakout Club Chart in the US. With her profile steadily rising, Scarlette went on to score further radio Radio 2 playlists and national press for her single 'Elated,' winning acclaim everywhere from the Daily Mirror to  Popjustice. These releases led to tour supports for Mike & The Mechanics, Roachford, and Caro Emerald.
