Catherine McGrath will release her debut album Talk of This Town on 27th July 2018 via Warner Bros Records.
The album was recorded in Nashville and London with a number of producers and co-writers including Steve Robson, Jimmy Robbins (Keith Urban), Liz Rose (Taylor Swift), Forest Glen Whitehead (Kelsea Ballerini) and Sam Ellis (Hunter Hayes).
It features Cinderella, Thought It Was Gonna Be Me and Just in Case, all three of which have exceeded a million streams on Spotify. McGrath has also unveiled her latest track Wild, which she co-wrote with Steve Robson, Lindy Robbins (Dua Lipa) and Jeffrey Steele (Rascal Flatts).
Discussing the track McGrath said, “This song is one of my favourites I’ve written. It’s about a guy who I liked but who still wasn’t over his ex. He took me to a Coldplay concert that he was meant to go to with his ex and half the time he was holding my hand, the other half he was texting her. Every time we were together he was only ever halfway there and the day after the concert I went into the studio and ended up writing about the whole thing. It’s really honest and I think that’s what I love most about it.”
Wild marks McGrath’s tenth consecutive New Music Friday UK playlisted track on Spotify.
