The ethereal and ever-lovely Vera Blue has just released her new single ‘Mended’ and in addition, has announced that she’ll be going on a national album tour, including a stop in Adelaide.
Following the success of ‘Private’, which has over 2 million streams around the world, she’s released this new song which details the aftermath of an intense relationship. While incredibly personal, it’s a song that Blue has been waiting to share with her fans for a long time and like much of her music, it comes from the heart.
“It was about a relationship that I had a few years ago. It had been a little while since we’d ended it and we hadn’t made amends, said we were sorry. It’s funny because you think the song is going to be about resolution, but we haven’t quite made it there yet,” she says.
It’s mind blowing that a 23-year-old can write and sing with such heart and something about it obviously resonates really well with her audience (which now includes a dedicated following in the US after her recent trip there). It may explain why all her previous Australian headline tours have sold out and tickets to the ‘Mended’ tour are expected to go just as fast.
Vera Blue is at The Gov on Friday, August 4 2017 and tickets go on sale next Monday.

MENDED is out today ✨✨✨✨ You can now listen to it and have it 🤗 follow the link in my bio. This song was written last year on my very first trip to the US. I will never forget the day I spent with the fellas Thom, Andy and Jackson creating this special little beast. We wrote it in a couple of hours, recorded a vocal and acoustic organically like we always do and then built the production around that. At first it was a challenge, had Andy happily experimenting for hours, but he always captures the rawness and emotion of the lyrics in the way the song is produced and we'd never heard or felt anything like it. When we got a rough demo late that night we sat in the little studio overlooking the ocean and listened to it. There were tears and goosebumps and that's when we new this song was going to be special. So many beautiful memories then Producing at @thegrovestudios @forbesstreetstudios and @i_am_adamanders together and I thank all of you so much for giving us your inspiring space. Mixed by wonderful @mannymarroquin and added lyrical glimpses written with my buddy and live guitarist @sammytelford . And recently @andymakmusic's and @i_am_adamanders's collaboration really made the production shine. Now, I feel so blessed to be sharing it with you ❤️ 'it's been a little while since we have ended, but we haven't mended. It's getting close' @andymakmusic @jacksonbarclay @sammytelford @i_am_adamanders ⭐️ #mended
