The New Respects Release Single
January 13, 2017 (Nashville, TN) — Nashville’s The New Respects has returned with a new single, “Money,” releasing the track today at all digital music services. 2017 is shaping up to be a breakout year for The New Respects, having recently signed with Credential Recordings and music distributor Caroline.
“’Money’ was written while we were in college, when we didn’t have much,” reflects the band’s bassist Alexis Fitzgerald. “The chorus says ‘life ain’t about money,’ and that’s true; we found happiness at a time when money was tight, and we wanted to share that sentiment with our fans. Our producer, Jeremy Lutito, helped us create a fun chorus and rhythm that would allow our audience to let loose and enjoy life in the moment.”
It was a chance meeting in Nashville that brought The New Respects together with producer/drummer Jeremy Lutito (of rock group Leagues). Lutito took an immediate liking to The New Respects’ soul/rock sound, and produced this single along with the group’s previous two tracks, “Trouble” and “Hey,” which landed on Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50 Chart.
The New Respects is a family affair, made up of three siblings, twins Alexis (bass) and Zandy Fitzgerald (guitar), along with their brother Darius (drums), and cousin Jasmine Mullen (vocals/guitar). The group is heavily influenced by the gospel music they were surrounded by growing up in Nashville, which extends to artists including Aretha Franklin, Alabama Shakes, and John Mayer. Looking ahead, The New Respects will showcase as an official artist at this year’s SXSW in Austin, TX.
