Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of the first single / video “The Lost and the Lonely” from LITTLE RIVER BAND. The song is taken from the forthcoming album “Cuts Like a Diamond” to be released in Europe on August 24th and in North America on August 27th.
“We put the new single into the live show already. In 33 years I’ve seen a lot of new songs get added to our set“, says long time member and singer/bassist Wayne Nelson. “Lost and the Lonely gets a standing ovation every time! I’ve never seen anything like this kind of response. Twice it has literally stopped the show. It’s emotional and actually kind of embarrassing to not know what to say after that! This new song strikes a chord with whoever hears it…especially our fans“.
The new video was shot by director Devin DeHaven (Night Ranger, Extreme, Richard Marx, Whitesnake, Dokken, Yes etc.) and cleverly portrays the spirit and the lyrical content of this beautiful new song.
The new single is available now for download and streaming in all fine shops such as iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer etc
LITTLE RIVER BAND is considered to be one of Australia’s most significant bands. Worldwide album and CD sales now top 30 million. They also set a record for having Top 10 hits for 6 consecutive years… the first band to achieve that mark. According to BMI, their song “Reminiscing” has garnered rare status with over 5 million airplays on the American radios, and “Lady” is close behind with over 4 million airplays. LITTLE RIVER BAND was rightfully inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame at the 18th Annual ARIA Music Awards of 2004.
