‘Days Gone By’ drops this Friday!
Days Gone By is the latest country banger by Laura Frank that is bound to have your toes tapping. Produced by ARIA and Golden Guitar winning producer, Jordan Power, and recorded at Bernard Fanning’s studio in the Byron Bay hinterland, the self-penned track is about metamorphosis.
The track opens with the steady chug of electric guitars – like a gentle beast stirring from slumber. By the song’s emphatic chorus, it’s wide awake. Laura's vocal soars effortlessly, unshackled from fear and doubt.
Laura says, “Over the years I put up walls and built castles around myself to protect myself from the disappointment, the failures and the mistakes. In more recent times, I've started to knock those down and forge a new path. Without those experiences or lessons, I wouldn’t be the person I am.”
The music video – which premieres today exclusively on Countrytown – was self-produced with her partner, Nick Morrissey. The stunning clip features panoramic hinterland vistas and Laura in the driver’s seat of a 1950 Chevy.
“From the concept, to design, hair and makeup, set, videography to editing, Nick and I have been doing it with just ourselves,” she says. “It’s the first time I’ve driven a left-hand drive car... it was strange but didn’t take me long to get the hang of it!”
