A new song, about what life is like when you're in your 20s is the new single from Melanie Dyer.
The Inverell singer-songwriter released the song on Friday.
It is Melanie's first single since Memphis T-Shirt, which dropped at the end of last year, and became her biggest hit, climbing to the top of the country charts.
For her next single she went to a track that was written on that same trip to Nashville in 2018. Called 20s, the song is all about life for someone in that age bracket.
"It was always at the top of the list to record next. I was just trying to find the right time," Melanie said.
That turned out to be this year. With the live music scene on hold, Melanie had returned home to the family farm near Inverell.
Earlier in the year she got to Brisbane to record the song with producer Konstantine Kersting, probably best known for his work with Tones and I and the hit Dance Monkey last year.
"He's a really great producer and it was definitely a different direction. He's never produced a country song ever.
"He just brought life to it and it was just cool to have his kind of flavor on there as well as mine and sit in the room and work out production together. I'm so happy with how it turned out."
Melanie has been playing the song live since she wrote it with Nashville songwriters in 2018, but some changes were made this year before recording.
"Konstantin had ideas for the arrangement and some chord changes," Melanie said.
"So we ended up reworking the song with him as well.
"It's strange how a song can be sitting there, and even though you're out there performing it, when it comes to recording it, the final version can change in the moment to suit the song.
"I think it was definitely great to put him on the song and, and have him change those little things."
While the song is written about life in your 20s, having fun, being adventurous and figuring out life as you go, Melanie said the state of the world at the moment meant many people could relate to the song. Plus it comes in the year 2020!
"Everything's up in the air and nobody really knows what the future holds. So it just kind of fit. We didn't plan it that way, but it definitely fits."
