It’s a big day for fans of Aussie songstress Megan Washington, with the announcement of an album, the cover, the tracklisting, a TV show and even a tour.
Firstly the album… It’s called ‘There There’ (cover image above) and the all-important sophomore piece is set for release in the middle of September. It comprises a dozen new recordings, including latest single ‘Limitless’, which all have a personal connection to the singer.
“In my mind, every single one of these songs has a name in brackets afterwards,” Megan says of the new LP. “The people in the songs know who they are. I certainly do. I wrote about living with anxiety, bad sex, being unfaithful, how much I loved the person I was unfaithful to, waking up in hospital, the heart-cracking sadness at the end of a party, being reckless and selfish and losing my best friend. I told the truth, as best I remember.”
The album (tracklist below) is now available for pre-order and will drop at all retailers on Friday September 12.
01. Yellow & Blue
02. My Heart Is A Wheel
05. Begin Again
06. Who Are You
07. Get Happy

09. The Falling
10. Consolation Prize
11. To Or Not To Let Go
12. One For Sorrow
In other news, Megan will feature in a special episode of ‘Australian Story’ this Monday night on the ABC. It documents her recent decision to open up about living life with a “debilitating” stutter and the years of therapy which have helped her to hide it so well. It screens from 8:00pm on Monday July 07 on ABC1.
Then, of course, there’s the small matter of a national tour.
