Katie Gregson-MacLeod Releases New Song “white lies” from New EP “songs written for piano”
Scottish singer-songwriter Katie Gregson-MacLeod released a new song “white lies” along with a music video on December 2, 2022.
The song is featured on her new EP “songs written for piano”, which was released on same day.
It was written by Katie Gregson-MacLeod and Matt Maltese. Produced by DANNY CASIO & Matt Maltese.
Katie Gregson-MacLeod said of the song,
“This is the most recent song on the EP and at the time of writing, I'd been experiencing so many changes to my own life and was the busiest I'd ever been. In that process I guess I was feeling detached from my feelings for this person. So when I went in to write with Matt Maltese, the main question that arose was around whether that feeling was a natural result of slowly growing apart or if I had just been really successful at distracting myself.”
She continued, “I was really chuffed to be writing with Matt, someone I'd looked up to as a writer for a long time, to the point where I didn't even realise how special the song was until Matt sent over the first demo. We'd just met that day but it was such an honest writing process and the song was finished really quickly. It's definitely one of my favourite songs I've written.”
- The New EP comprises 5-track, including the smash hit “complex” along with a live version recorded with a 12-piece string ensemble, in addition to 3 new tracks.
Produced by DANNY CASIO, Greg Kurstin, Josh Scarbrow, Matt Maltese and Steph Marziano.
She said of the EP, “I had the idea for this body of work really early on into the process of 'complex' being released and all the craziness around it. I've always wanted to release a stripped back acoustic EP and when 'complex' – a song released in demo form first with just piano and vocal – resonated with so many people I felt it was a perfect opportunity to release a body of work that fell within that world sonically and thematically.”
