Jasmine Rae Releases New Single & Music Video ‘Eggs In A Basket’
Three time ARIA nominee Jasmine Rae has today officially released the latest single, ‘Eggs In A Basket,’ – the third single from her latest album, Heartbeat through ABC Music / Universal Music Australia. This quirky and incredibly unique track from the two-time CMC Music Award winner was written by Jasmine and fellow Melbournian songwriter Clive Young. The track received international recognition earlier this year when it was named as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition.
“Eggs in a basket, ducks in A row. Headed for the big time don’t you know…. these were some lyrics that my co-writer Clive thought of and almost didn’t show me when we were throwing ideas around in a session. We laughed at the sillyness of the idea, and I felt an overwhelming urge to just dive into it and write what is the most ‘random’ song I’ve ever recorded,” says Jasmine Rae.
“So we wrote a story about a little boy who started his own backyard business selling eggs to his neighbours, in an attempt to woo the little girl who lived at the top of the street. I love the driving force of the Mandolin throughout the whole track and the back porch vibe it creates.”
Also for the first time, not only does Jasmine Rae star in the song’s new music video, but she also directed it. The video, features ARIA, APRA and Golden Guitar winner Mike Carr.
Along with this new single release, Jasmine Rae has just been announced as one of the main attractions at the upcoming Farm Draft 2016 Community Challenge & Country Music Festival, a one-day event to celebrate the work of our farming community in Wagga Wagga on October 22. She’ll then join a bunch of Australia’s biggest stars for Crusin’ Country #6 in November.
