Singer/songwriter Pauline Murray announces new single 'Shadow In My Mind' from her forthcoming solo album 'Elemental'

Pauline Murray, singer, songwriter and performer with iconic first-wave punks Penetration and 80s pop ensemble the Invisible Girls releases her third solo album Elemental on 25th September.

Listeners got their first taste of the classic synth-led pop sounds of Elemental with the release of the ‘Secrets’ single back in June, and today Pauline follows that up with the upbeat and melodically addictive new single ‘Shadow In My Mind’.

Shadow In My Mind’ was written on acoustic guitar and has only ever been performed as part of my acoustic set (supporting the Mission, Ronnie Spector, Doctors of Madness and toured solo in Australia in 2014). The song is about the dialogue we constantly have with ourselves both positive and negative and how we can be our own best friend or our own worst enemy.”

The recording of the song began in France in October 2016 with acoustic guitar and keyboards and was completed at Polestar Studios in Newcastle Upon Tyne with additional musicians – Steve Hopkins (keyboards), Paul Thompson (drums), and Robert Blamire (bass) who is also the producer.

Pauline will be touring with the Psychedelic Furs in April/May with a full band, performing songs from her acclaimed album Pauline Murray and the Invisible Girls as well as a selection of songs from her new album Elemental.

Elemental is released 25th September 2020 via Polestar Records.
