Alex Lahey has announced her new album.

The follow-up to 2019's 'The Best Of Luck Club' is called 'The Answer Is Always Yes' and will arrive on May 19, marking her debut release on new label Liberation.

Alongside the news, the Australian singer-songwriter has shared the record's lead single, Good Time, a bright, country-pop leaning song that was co-written and produced by Jacknife Lee. Following the previously unveiled cuts, Shit Talkin' and Congratulations, it arrives paired with a video directed by Jon Danovic. Lahey said:

"Living in a world that wasn’t made for you makes you pretty strong and adaptive, and you find the fun in it. It also makes you realise how absurd everything is. With this record, I wanted to get weird because the world is weird, and it’s even weirder when you realise you don’t fit into it all the time."

Of Good Time, she added: “This song was inspired by a night out I had at the pub with my friend soon after Melbourne came out of lengthy lockdowns. We were watching all these strangers around us have this ‘whatever it takes’ attitude towards making the most of the night (aka getting lit). It was a bit of a shock after being cooped up for so long, but also kind of invigorating."

Lahey will embark on a North American tour in the spring. Head here for details.
