Ricki-Lee Returns With New Single ‘On My Own’ – Out Now!
Former Façon Magazine cover star and Multi-talented artist RICKI-LEE is back with new music, releasing today her anticipated new single “On My Own” ending the longest musical break in her discography – almost three years since her last single release. In addition, delighting fans is the announcement that her fifth studio album will be scheduled for release later this year!
With the first taste of this exciting new era Ricki-Lee heartfully shares about the new single, “On My Own is the song of my life. If this is the last song I ever put out I can hang my hat up and say ‘OK, I’m happy’. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted to say in a song.” Ricki-Lee is not known for making wild claims over her near 20-year career. She has a strict quality control policy that means if there’s no new music, that’s because she’s not ready for anyone to hear it.
Ricki-Lee continues, “What I love about this song is that it’s a bit left-field, it’s not what people are expecting from me. My favourite lyric in the whole song is ‘I found sparks in the darkest places so watch me start a fire in the rain’. No matter what I’ve been through, even in the most difficult and challenging times when everything was against me, and people doubted me or said I couldn’t….I did. I figured it out, I found a way, I made it happen and I did what nobody expected. That goes for everything in my life. That line represents my entire personality.”
The last song recorded for the upcoming album, “On My Own” was written and produced by Ricki-Lee along with Australian hitmakers DNA (Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci). The trio have now been secretly working on new music together for over a year. “I feel like I’ve found my pop music writing family,” Ricki-Lee says. DNA said they were impressed by Ricki-Lee refusing to settle for anything that didn’t hit her in the heart or gut. “These studio sessions have really reminded us that she’s one of Australia’s best artists and singers by far. She just gets the craft and always aims so high,” Anthony said. “Ricki-Lee has one of the best voices of our generation and I can’t wait for the world to hear what we’ve created together,” David added.
This year will continue Ricki-Lee’s legacy as one of Australia’s greatest vocalists, the multi-platinum selling & ARIA nominated singer/songwriter has achieved multiple Multi-Platinum and Gold selling singles including “Hell No”, “Sunshine”, “Can’t Touch It”, “Raining Diamonds”, “Do It Like That”, “Burn It Down”, “Crazy” and “Come & Get In Trouble With Me”. Ricki-Lee has sold over One Million records globally with 4x #1’s on the ARIA Dance Chart & UK Club Charts, 15x ARIA Top 20 singles, 3x ARIA Top 10 Albums, a Top 10 single on Japan’s Billboard Hot 100 Chart, 6x Gold, 5x Platinum and 4x Double Platinum certifications.
