Fanny Lumsden Announces Second Album 'Real Class Act'

It’s been a successful twelve months for rising country star Fanny Lumsden. Although, to call her a ‘rising star’ seems unfair because she’s managed to travel 80,000 plus kilometres, played to sold out halls all around Australia and won herself a Golden Guitar and CMC Music Award. It seems safe to say that her star has most definitely risen.

This morning (17 July) during Breakfast with Crossy she revealed the details on her upcoming second album. It’s going to be titled Real Class Act and is set for a release on the 22nd September and is available right now for pre-order.

As she did with her debut album Small Town Big Shot, this follow up album is once again entirely crowd funded. In fact, the album was made while the crowd funding was still taking place.

“We crowd funded this back in April and May, and secret we went into the studio at the same time and we made the record!” Fanny revealed. However, those funds raised will go to paying the people that need to be paid who helped contribute to the record, including producer Matt Fell (Shane Nicholson, Morgan Evans, Amber Lawrence) who they worked with on their first album.

Real Class Act will also be the first album released on their very own record label called Red Dirt Road.


“We could have gone down the traditional sign to a label and all of that. We had those opportunities offered to us. (But) everything has been community based (and we come from) the grass roots, so we thought why not add to that side to it anyway.”

At this point they aren’t planning on signing any other artists totheir record label, but they aren’t ruling that out either.

The first single is called ‘Roll On’ and Fanny says that the song “embodies the whole last 18 months, which has just been one massive road trip” she says. “It was the last song I wrote for the record, and we didn’t have any kind of driving song… all of the songs were written while on the road so I feel like we needed one of those.”

She also says that the album will have the Fanny Lumsden sound still, but she feels like “it’s a step forward in terms of songwriting and in terms of songs.”

“We had a lot of fun in the production side of it… we stayed in the studio, we actually stayed there… we kind of pushed in a few different directions. I’m excited.”

The album is available for pre-order now and if you do, you’ll also get an ‘I Love Fanny’ temporary tattoo and you’ll go into the draw to win a house concert at your house.
