Amy Shark “Adore” [LIVE ACL 2017]
Amy Shark joined ACL Radio back in 2017 at Threadgill’s for our Live Morning Broadcast during ACL Fest. She performed “Adore,” which is featured in her 2018 debut album Love Monster. Last year, the artist joined forces on a track with The Chainsmokers called “The Reaper.”
2020 came with new music from the singer-songwriter. Shark released a single called “Everybody Rise.” She wrote on Instagram, “Thank you for being so patient. The last few years were insane, I am so honored to have you all and feel very lucky every day that you listen to my music.” Aside from some new tunes, the artist is planning on releasing a documentary with Mick Fanning on sharks. Shark grew up with a fear for sharks, which is why she gave herself that stage name. The documentary displays the musician facing that fear; it will premiere in September on National Geographic Australia and This Film Studio.
