NEW EP RELEASE FROM
ONE SUMMER DAY / MY JULIETTE
~OUT MARCH 27 ON DIGITAL FORMATS VIA EAGLE ROCK ENTERTAINMENT~
New York, NY (March 27, 2020)--On March 27, legendary singer-songwriter Justin Hayward will release the digital-only EP One Summer Day / My Juliette. This two-track release will be available via all digital service providers.
Whether performing solo or with The Moody Blues, Justin Hayward’s songwriting is known for its thought-provoking lyrics and inventive melodies. These qualities are fully displayed in the new tracks “One Summer Day” and “My Juliette.”
“One Summer Day” is written in a conversational style, telling the story of unexpected events taking place one day in the summer. According to Justin, the song came about in an organic manner. “[It] just sprang out of my old Martin guitar late one evening...I had been playing the riff for a while just for fun, without realizing it could actually be a song.”
“My Juliette,” which references Andy Williams’ early 60s recording of “Moon River”, was inspired by Justin’s childhood fascination with the theater. His mother played piano for a repertory theater group during a summer in his childhood. He played guitar for the company, and was drawn into the artistry of the stage, from Shakespeare to pantomime. “I was entranced and I still treasure every moment of that theatre life,” Hayward continues. “I had the song for years before I was sure I wanted to actually finish or record it because I enjoyed just playing around with it.”
