Roots duo The Imaginaries have released new single “You Already Know”, a song they initially wrote for each other and performed for the first time on their wedding day almost ten years ago. The song is also featured on recently aired Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movie “Redemption In Cherry Springs” starring Rochelle Aytes, Keith Robinson, and Frankie Faison.
“You Already Know” was a song that Maggie McClure and Shane Henry felt didn’t quite fit into their newer Americana efforts, taking a more Soul-based direction, but it was still one that they wanted to share with the world. music they were making given its more soulful vibe. When they went to Muscle Shoals, Alabama to make their debut album at Portside Sound, they officially recorded the song with drummer Rob Humphreys (Leonard Cohen, Jason Mraz), guitarist Kelvin Holly (Jason Isbell, Gregg Allman, Neil Young), and bassist Shonna Tucker (John Paul White, The Secret Sisters). The single was mixed by Ryan Lipman (Marie Digby, Travis Howard, Cary Brothers) and mastered by Grammy-Award winner David Glasser.
Shane Henry explains:
“I had written most of this song already when I played it for Maggie leading up to our wedding and she helped edit and improve some of the lyrics while making the second verse hers. At the time we felt like we didn’t know much besides the fact that we were meant to be together. That’s where this song originated from, relying on each other and our faith, and knowing that we’ll be there for one another no matter what.”
The Imaginaries also recently wrapped filming A Cowgirl’s Song, a country music driven feature film and fourth installment in the Cowgirls ‘N Angels series, starring Cheryl Ladd (Charlie’s Angels), Savannah Lee May (Julie And The Phantoms, The Secret Lives Of Cheerleaders) and Darci Lynne Farmer (America’s Got Talent season 12 winner), as well as The Imaginaries, who are co-producing, co-starring in, music supervising, scoring, and co-writing the soundtrack to the film.
In the meantime, The Imaginaries are touring throughout the US playing Hotel Café In LA on September 30, State Fair Of Texas on October 5, Rockwood Music Hall In NY on October 16, and Muscle Shoals Songwriter Festival November 6, among others.
