Louise Distras is streaming her brand new single, “Outside Of You.” The track is set for release via Street Revolution Records on the 26th of May.
The song is a taster of what is to come from Distras’ as yet untitled second album and the singer-songwriter says the new collection will “take my songs to a new level with harder hitting lyrics and harder hitting concepts.”
“I’m standing up for the disenfranchised kids who get picked on at school, the kids outside the box whose world has been changed by the power of music,” the Wakefield born artist continues.
“Growing up as a young working class woman in a post-Thatcher era, these songs and poems reflect that environment. The gatekeepers of the music industry have tried to call these protest songs, which is a label that I don’t understand because I’m just passing on my experience as a human being growing up in these apocalyptic conditions of unemployment and apathy.”
Check out the song via the stream below.
