Imogen Clark unveils ‘MY OWN WORST ENEMY’, the second single from her forthcoming The Making Of Me EP.

Due for release on August 21 (Potts Entertainment/MGM), The Making Of Me EP is available to pre-order NOW.

Written with Alex Lahey, ‘My Own Worst Enemy’ is an arena-ready up-tempo pop-rock fusion, gritty and raw, showcasing Imogen’s powerful vocal. Lahey, who also lends guitar and synth to the track, is underpinned by music legends Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) on cascading synths and piano, and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Attractions) on drums, both infusing the song with their own unique rock-flavour.

“I’ve been a fan of Alex Lahey’s since her first singles came out”, says Imogen. “We met in Nashville while I was writing and she was on tour, had some drinks at a dive bar and wrote ‘My Own Worst Enemy’ a few months later in Melbourne. We opened up a vein about shared experiences in past relationships and the song just flowed out. I loved writing with Alex, and I love having her DNA in the guitar and synth on the final recording.”

Filmed remotely around the world to accommodate social distancing, the ‘My Own Worst Enemy music video features cameo appearances from some of Australia’s favourite music personalities; Lindsay McDougall (Frenzal Rhomb), Luke Davison (The Preatures), Henry WagonsDavey Lane (You Am I), Georgia Mooney (All Our Exes Live In Texas), Clio RennerDave Jenkins Jr(Not A Boys Name) and more. Clare Bowen (Nashville television series) and US artist Brandon Robert Young, who co-wrote the EP’s lead single ‘Found Me’ with Imogen, and Mike Bloom(Jenny Lewis, Julian Casablancas), who produced the EP, also make appearances.  

Released last month, Imogen Clark’s lead single Found Me’ garnered praise from US and Australian tastemakers. “With powerful vocals and an infectious drumbeat, Clark sets out to cure a broken heart. This breakup anthem will pick you up off the floor, dust you off and have you feeling ready to start seeing the world in color once again”, said US pop culture site Parade, who premiered the track.

Through June, Imogen continues her ticketed LIVE FROM THE BACKYARD virtual tour. Having already completed flawlessly produced sold out acoustic and piano performances to rave reviews, she performs an electric guitar set on Saturday 13 June, culminating in a final performance on Saturday 27 June which will comprise a set-list of fan requests. 

Tickets and details of how to watch the upcoming performances are available now at imogenclark.com.au.
