The married duo shared on social media, “Miguel cooked up a cracking lamb roast that we felt deserved a song or two. We made up a song about our hosts, which is pretty hilarious (just sayin’), and also sang Memory Lane, which brought a tear to Amanda’s eye.”

Memory Lane is the third single from their forthcoming second album. Driven by melting harmonies and powerhouse vocals, the track has already become a real crowd-pleaser at the duo’s most recent live shows. The timeless mid-tempo single follows in the footsteps of second single Roll On Baby capturing the middle ground between the pop-tinged country McClymont is known for, and the grittier side of country music that Eckersley has made his own.
The uplifting Memory Lane was produced by Robby De Sa, whose talent of capturing the energy of the song in the studio was supported by mixing at The Grove studio by Scott Horscroft.
Eckersley says about the new single, “For years we’ve been asked at shows about how we got together, and it has become a bit of a laugh as we both have our own versions of how it all went down, I think the truth lies somewhere in between both our versions, so after talking about it for so long we decided it was time to put it in a song.”
He adds, “We’ve had a great time taking a walk down memory lane while writing, recording, and playing this single. Every love story starts somewhere, and time has a way of blurring memories, but the past doesn’t really matter when you continue looking forward to making new memories together.”
McClymont continues, “We hope that when you hear this song it brings back great memories of your own love story.”
Accompanying the single is the official video for Memory Lane. Directed and produced by Brad Murnane, the video was filmed at McClymont and Eckersley’s farm.
Eckersley explains, “We filmed the film clip while travel was still uncertain with COVID, so we decided to get the lovely and talented Brad Murnane and Billy Zammit (cinematographer) from Spill Films to come to our farm and we spent the day cruising about having a great laugh while filming, it was almost too easy to call it work haha.”
Coming off the back of their recent sold out ‘Roll On Baby’ tour, McClymont and Eckersley are still riding the wave of their Star Of The Show single reaching #1 on the iTunes Single and Video Chart after McClymont performed it on the 2022 season of I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! and second single, Roll On Baby, peaking at #3 on Country Airplay Chart.
