Alt-country singer-songwriter Melody Pool has long been a firm favourite of Timber and Steel – we picked her song “Henry” as our top track of 2013.

Pool’s been pretty quiet of late as she works on her upcoming album Deep Dark Savage Heart, due on the 29th April – but of course with an imminent album release that’s all about to change.

“I feel like I’ve really stood my ground with this record,” explains Melody Pool. “I didn’t ever expect to make an album filled with pop hits. It’s always going to be me playing guitar and singing the truth. I’m really proud of this album. It really shows where I’m at – or where I was at – and how I wanted it to turn out.”

The first taster of Deep Dark Savage Heart is the stunning single and video “Love, She Loves Me” (which we warn you contains a few naughty words). Check out the video here:

Melody Pool will be heading out on tour this May – the full list of dates are here:

Friday 13th May – Shadow Electric, Melbourne, VIC
Wednesday 18th May – Grand Junction Hotel, Maitland, NSW Thursday 19th May – 5 Sawyers, Newcastle, NSW
Friday 20th May – Paddington Uniting Church, Sydney, NSW
Saturday 21st May – Front Gallery, Canberra, ACT
Thursday 26th May – Old Museum, Brisbane, QLD
Sunday 29th May – Trinity Sessions, Adelaide, SA
