ERJA LYYTINEN NEW SINGLE- “LAST GIRL” TAKEN FROM NEW ALBUM “WAITING FOR THE DAYLIGHT”
RELEASED FRIDAY 7 OCTOBER 2022
Finnish blues rock slide guitarist and singer songwriter Erja Lyytinen is pleased to announce the release of Last Girl, the second single taken from her upcoming ninth studio album Waiting For The Daylight.
Released by Tuohi Records on Friday October 7th, Erja’s new album Waiting For The Daylight features nine original songs, and is available to pre-order from https://erjalyytinen.com/waiting-for-the-daylight.
Last Girl deals with the subject of bullying in schools and the feeling of being left out of a friendship group, says Erja. “This song is for those who feel as if they are outsiders, which is a current topic as the new school year is about to start. A lot is happening in the song, and it is quite intense and energetic, just like the school world is.”
“Continues Erja, “Making the music video for Last Girl felt essential because it’s such an important topic to me. A young girl features in the music video, and at the end, she is playing an electric guitar with me as part of the group and having a good time. The song speaks out on many levels.”
“It was fascinating to create guitar parts for Last Girl. It has some vibes from rock bands like Iron Maiden, but I also wrote twin-part guitar harmonies to the C – part in the style of an Allman Brothers Band. I wanted to create a song with an old classic rock feel but executed with modern sounds and techniques.”
“The intro has pull-offs and some fast licks and flute notes combined which creates the main guitar theme for the whole song. This song has probably one of the most challenging guitar parts I have written so far.”
