Scottish rock four-piece Estrella reveal the first single to be released from their second album. The much anticipated track, aptly named, “Here I Am’’ is set for release 24th November.
The inspiration for the track was drawn from the guys becoming fed up of being told they need to ‘get real jobs’, so in true musician style, they reacted by writing a killer song. Proud of what they do and echoing their own journey, the words ratify the need to follow your own fate.
The track rings true to Estrella’s energetic rock sound and the production is absolutely seamless. The thoughtful lyrics, teamed with powerful guitar riffs is the stuff rock hits are made of.
Some very talented veterans of the rock world have lent their hands to the making of Estrella’s new album and the album has a provenance most rock bands would envy.
“Here I am’’ was recorded at the infamous Rockfield Studios, Wales. The very studios in which Queen recorded hit, “Bohemian Rhapsody”. John T Sinclair, who has worked with rock heavyweights ‘Uriah Heep’, ‘The Cult’ and ‘Ozzy Osbourne band’, co-wrote and co-produced “Here I am”. Production on the second album was overseen by Nick Brine, who has worked with and contributed to the global success of legends, The Darkness, Bruce Springsteen and Oasis.
With this hearty mix of rocking talent coming together on one project, the new album is undeniably bound for greatness. You can hear their new single ‘Here I Am’ on the below:
Estrella have been moving from strength to strength over summer and have made appearances at a wealth of rock festivals. Dave Ritchie from Wildfire Festival (previously Les-Fest) described Estrella as,
“The most exciting and entertaining, live rock band in the country, Estrella give 100% every time, simply unmissable!”.
Hard Rock Hell Festival said, “These boys know how to rock!”.
With fans of the band including Classic Rock Magazine and XFM presenters Tom Russell and noted music tastemaker Jim Gellatly, as well as setting off on a European Tour in November with Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses ex-guitarist) you will be hearing plenty more of Estrella in the coming months
