Kora Naughton is set to release her killer new single, Till We Drop, off her latest album, Nineteen, this coming Tuesday, February 8 – and we have your first look at the music video in this exclusive premiere!
Filmed at Moonshiners Bar in Tamworth with a handful of locals, the music video was filmed, produced and directed by Luke Oldknow at Electric Light Films, Tamworth.
Kora says, “At the time I wrote Till We Drop, I had written most of the tracks for Nineteen, and I just felt like there was something missing from the album. I had all the bases covered except for that drinking song every country artist releases at some point. It ended up feeling like the party anthem you never knew you needed.”
She adds, “It’s about the freedom to just have a good time, make your own choices and consider the consequences (hangovers) later. Everyone knows what that one feels like. I’m incredibly proud of this track and am so excited to finally release it as a single – it feels like a long time coming.”

Kora taught herself to play guitar, write songs and sing after she was forced to give up her passion of cheerleading – a sport she had loved since she was 7 years old. But it wasn’t until she attended her first Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2017 that she discovered that music was what she wanted to do.
She has since opened shows for some of the greats in Australian Country Music including Travis Collins, Amber Lawrence, Tania Kernaghan, Christie Lamb, Catherine Britt and Hayley Jensen, and has performed alongside the likes of Bill Chambers and James Blundell.
Kora released her debut album, Ride or Die the following year with producer and musician, Rod Motbey. Singles included the title track, the lyrically darker Ravenswood Lane and Cease Fire – a song inspired by the Manchester Arena attack in 2017.
Nineteen, her follow up album, was released in 2021. The album combines modern production values combined with traditional elements, along with a dash of swamp and some country blues. Featuring thirteen tracks, eleven of which she penned herself, the album includes the previous singles Speechless, Lap Around The Sun, Lay Down & Die, My Heart To Break, Last This Summer featuring Bryce Sainty, and Devil On Your Shoulder, as well as her two personal favourites – the Caroline Watkins and Jackson Odell penned Smokin’ and Cryin’ along with her take on the Moving Pictures classic, What About Me.
