Georgia Lines returns with heartfelt and stunning new ballad, ‘The Letter’

Aotearoa’s award-winning artist Georgia Lines has today released her first single of 2024, the
emotive and soaring new track ‘The Letter’.

Following the phenomenal success of her previous chart-toppers, Monopoly and ‘Romeo’, which both (on release) debuted as #1 Most Added song on the NZ Radioscope Charts, today’s release puts on full display the versatility and depth of Georgia’s songwriting skills.

A heartfelt and emotive ballad, ‘The Letter’ showcases what Georgia does best; singing and playing piano, taking this release back to the gorgeous singer and songwriter craft of how she began as an artist.

“I am so excited to finally share ‘The Letter’, the first track to be released from my debut album! Making this album has been such an incredible experience… pushing my creativity and musical capacity to the seams and I’m deeply proud of the body of work I’ve created. It’s pretty special finally getting to start sharing what I’ve been working on for the past two years. ‘The Letter’ was written on my first writing trip to Los Angeles at the end of 2022 and for me is one of the most special, honest and deeply personal songs I have ever written.”  GEORGIA LINES

Written during the same trip where Georgia wrote the hit single, ‘Monopoly’, ‘The Letter’ was co-written alongside Ricky Manning (Johnny Orlando, Blake Rose) and Whakaio Taahi (previously of Tonight Alive). 

Mixed by Nic Manders and mastered by Kog Studio (Marlon Williams)‘The Letter’ highlights Georgia’s unparalleled ability to create an intimate connection through her lyrics, with the track offering a tantalising glimpse into the musical brilliance that lies ahead for her debut album – THE ROSE OF JERICHO – set for release on June 7th, 2024.

Also out today is the stunning, one-shot accompanying video for ‘The Letter’.

“Our idea was to craft a beautiful, simple, yet captivating visual representation that gave room
