Country Soul singer-songwriter Tami Neilson has shared the single “Careless Woman,” via Outside Music, along with a music video co-starring New Zealand-based actress Olivia Tennet (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Power Rangers RPM) and Ling Zhang of Parris Goebel’s Royal Family Dance Crew.
‘Careless Woman’ was inspired by a 1938 collection of ‘Dating Tips’ in Parade Magazine, one of which read, ‘Careless Women never appeal to gentlemen. Don’t talk while dancing, for when a man dances, he wants to dance.’ Director Abe Mora was inspired to bring this era to life and built an amazing coin-operated music box for me and my band of Careless Women to perform in, like a human jukebox. As the song plays, the women in the bar are empowered and begin to dance and throw off the oppressive rules of propriety.
“Careless Woman” marks the latest single from Neilson’s fifth studio album, Kingmaker due via Outside Music on Friday, July 15, 2022. Neilson will undertake a wide-ranging world tour, including a showcase performance at the Americana Music Association’s 22nd annual Americanafest, set for September 13-17 in Nashville, TN. Additional North American dates will be announced soon.
Kingmaker also sees Neilson joining forces with Willie Nelson for the Country duet, “Beyond The Stars,” available now. An official music video, directed by Neilson’s brother Todd and featuring exclusive footage filmed earlier this year at Austin, TX’s SXSW Music Festival and Nelson’s world-famous Luck Reunion in Luck, TX, has also been released.
