The Auxiliary Releases Debut Song “Overture”
- Back in 2018, American singer-songwriter Russell Howard's solo project The Auxiliary released a cover of Sia's “Chandelier”.
Four years later, he released his long-awaited debut song “Overture” on January 28, 2022.
The track was written by Russell Howard and produced by Lawson White.
Russell Howard shared on social media, “It has been a long time since I have released music and I'll admit to being a little anxious. For those of you that have been with me from the beginning, Overture might seem like a radical change of direction. For me, Overture and The Auxiliary represent a new era of music making where the dogmas of genre and form don't dictate where the art can lead. It's both exciting and slightly terrifying. Let's go there together.”
The song will appear on his upcoming debut EP. He said, “of the music, Overture is perhaps the most purely electronic and by releasing it first, we touch a far wall of the space I’m creating with The Auxiliary. The next one is a profanity laced ukulele protest song, so take it as you will.”
