Michelle Wright will release two new tracks, including the gospel-influenced “Lovin’ This Day” and “Attitude Is Everything,” on Aug. 31 across all digital platforms. These tracks mark Wright’s first new recordings since 2013’s Strong. In 2014, the singer-songwriter took a break from recording to focus on songwriting and performing.
“My music is always an extension of me,” says Wright, “Each new song is a chance to push a little harder, and dig a little deeper.”
For the new tracks, Wright enlisted the help of producer, fellow Canadian and long-time friend Bob Funk to begin the process of sorting through the mountain of songs she had written, co-written and received from other writers. Together, Wright and Funk also delved into the catalogs of another long-time friend Daryl Burgess and his cowriters Joanna Cotten and Angie Russell.
Wright will continue to write, record and release songs on the Navigator Records imprint, but by releasing the two tracks in single form Wright and her team are reaching out directly to music fans.
“Out on the concert trail, we see the changing way that people are consuming music. I will always make CDs, but technology allows us to put new songs in our show right along with the hits and make them immediately available to those that are moved by the music.”
In the early 1990s, Wright broke through on US country radio with the Top 10 hit “Take It Like A Man.” She has earned numerous No. 1 hits on Canadian country radio with hits including “One Time Around,” “Nobody’s Girl,” “One Good Man,” and more.
