When you think about it, why are you together? Video 1 in my #AsItWasWritten series

A Troublesome relationship, totally messed up and totally confused. When you think about it, why are you actually together?

I’m not sure what this song says about me as a person, but…anyway! This is the first video in my #AsItWasWritten series in which I’ll be releasing the tracks from my upcoming studio album Villains, which is released on January 29th 2015. These songs have been recorded live and are exactly as they came together in my bedroom, no production, just me and my guitar.

Like ohhh emmm serious geee, my album is complete!!!

News just in… I have FINISHED my album!!! My first full studio album!

I am so excited to tell you that I’ve now officially finished the recording of my first studio album. It now goes into mixing and mastering, so I thought I’d tell you a little bit more about it…

Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing the details of the official launch, but here are some exciting details:

1. I had my recent performance professionally videoed, and as I sung most of the songs off the new record, will be sharing them via my YouTube channel in the lead up to the release date. YAY for new YouTube material!

2. The album is called Villains and features 11 tracks – and is a concept album… yes, you heard me correctly. There is a whole story, and a whole load of creepy surprises throughout, sounds odd? Well… that’s the plan!

3. There will be a sneaky follow-up EP, 5 tracks… however the tracks will in fact be, spoken word poetry. Lots of lyrics actually became poems and didn’t make the musical cut, however… they are things I want to share.

That’s the details for now… but as my highly creative post-it note says… LIKE OH EMMMM SERIOUS GEEE, I’m really excited!

As always, THANK YOU for your continued support. Be sure to subscribe to my channel here.

#OnceUponATime – Sometimes I wonder, where you have been…

This is my live performance of my brand new single, Once Upon A Time – a song all about regretting the chance you didn’t take, or should I say, the person you let slip through your fingers…?! This video was recorded at Google Australia’s Big Tent event. Stay tuned for the studio version video (released exclusively via Google Play), coming to my YouTube channel too!

I’ve had a few requests for the lyrics, so here they are:

Once Upon A Time

Sometimes I wonder, where you have been what you’ve done and what you have said
Sometimes I wonder, who you’ve been seeing and I can’t help wish it was me instead.
and I know I should’ve grown up a long time ago
but I can’t get you out of my head
Thought I was over you a long time ago
now I’m lying just to be your friend

Oh when you call me
I lose myself in those memories
how once upon a time once upon a time I could’ve had you
I was so close, to doing what I knew I shouldn’t do
Once upon a time once upon a time I nearly had you

Sometimes I wonder, where you are now if you ever think about me
Sometimes I wonder, what could’ve happened if I hadn’t let my good side stop me.
And I know I should’ve grown up, a long time ago
but you’re still running round in my mind
I thought I was over this, a long time ago
but I’m still sitting here wishing you were mine

Oh when you call me
I lose myself in those memories
how once upon a time once upon a time I could’ve had you
I was so close, to doing what I knew I shouldn’t do
Once upon a time once upon a time I nearly had you

And I know its no good going over old ground
I can’t help imagine it’s you who’s coming round
I know I’m no good wanting what I can’t have
but its you
you’re the best thing,
that I never had.

And I know I should’ve grown up, a long time ago
but you’re still running round in my mind
I thought I was over this, a long time ago
but I’m still sitting here wishing you were mine

Oh when you call me
I lose myself in those memories
how once upon a time once upon a time I could’ve had you
I was so close, to doing what I knew I shouldn’t do
Once upon a time once upon a time I nearly had you.
I could’ve had you.

The Story Behind Goodbye (to the ones who screwed you over) – My new single!

When I wrote the song Goodbye (to the ones who screwed you over), I knew instantly I wanted it to be the first single from the record – I can’t really explain why exactly, it just seemed to flow so well during the writing process, that it just felt natural.

LizzyspitThe song is about moving on – from a situation, a person, a group of people or relationship that is doing nothing but dragging you down. It’s only when someone you know, or should I say, someone who knows how to see things independently from what you see, helps you see things from an outside perspective, and in turn gives you the strength to put a stop to it, and move forward.

I was inspired to write it after someone very close to me told me about an experience they had one evening where months of feeling trapped and down all came to a head when a near-stranger heard about the situation and just gave a totally different perspective. All of a sudden, things just seemed clearer, like there was an answer, finally. I think finding the strength to make the change is half the battle, and when you do find that strength, the power you feel is incredible – you feel like square one isn’t such a bad place to be any more – it’s actually a new beginning, a new start – and most importantly, something you are actually ready and prepared for.

In the studioI’ve had such a lovely response to the song – I was actually overwhelmed by the lovely praise and comments that came in for it via my social networks, most especially my beloved Google+. Next week I start work on the official video – which is so exciting for me. Up until now I’ve made all my videos myself, with some crafty camera work and iMovie – so to actually have a director, and a proper camera crew is going to be a whole new, and very exciting experience. Needless to say, I can’t wait to share it with you all.

If you’ve not heard the song, head over to http://www.triplejunearthed.com/lizzyspit to download your FREE copy – why not rate and review it while you’re there!

Lots of love,
Lizzy xo
