Brand New Single Out Dec 31 – Pre-save here
Hot off the heels of her chart climbing single ‘New Wings’, US singer-songwriter Alyssa Bonagura is set to release her next single ‘Last Night In December’ on New Year’s Eve – 31 December 2021.
Co-written with hit songwriters Sam Ellis and Jon Nite, the track is an emotional, heart-wrenching ballad remembering an all-encompassing kind of love, and tells a cinematic story of spending the last evening of the year with that special someone. Alyssa states, “Sometimes memories can turn out to be bittersweet and I love being able to capture a moment in a song because songs are forever, even when some relationships are not.”
The song is one of four that Alyssa co-produced with her friend and former label mate Tom Jordan of the band Seaforth. Taking to Instagram Live and performing acoustically during the pandemic, the song started becoming popular amongst her fans, and Jordan being one of those viewers reached out to Alyssa to collaborate on the production.
Speaking on the single and collaboration, Tom comments, “Alyssa is a true storyteller and one of the most naturally gifted people I have ever known. This song floored me from the first time I heard it. I am honoured to have been able to help her bring her vision to life for this song.”
In addition to the upcoming release, Alyssa is playing several shows in and around Nashville in December – for dates, tickets and more information, visit alyssabonagura.com.
ABOUT ALYSSA BONAGURA:
A songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Alyssa Bonagura has spent the past decade fine-tuning a sound that reaches far beyond her Nashville roots. It’s a sound that blurs the boundaries between genres, mixing the southern storytelling of country music, the free-thinking spirit of rock & roll, and the cinematic sweep of Brit-pop into its own hybrid. For Alyssa — a lifelong road warrior who spent her infancy aboard a tour bus, recorded a duet with Kenny Rogers at 10 years old, received her college diploma from Sir Paul McCartney, and currently balances her critically-acclaimed solo career with an ongoing gig writing songs for Jessie James Decker, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, and others — it’s also a sound that’s every bit as diverse as her own story.
Alyssa’s latest solo project marks her first release post her collaboration in The Sisterhood Band, which took Alyssa across the world touring two successful Sony Music EP releases, with performances at the iconic Grand Ole Opry, main support for Rod Stewart on his UK & Ireland stadium tour, and a sold-out UK headline tour, along with numerous major festival appearances.
