Georgia Lines releases new single and video, ‘Call Me By My Name’

Friday 23 July 2021

Tauranga-based vocal powerhouse, Georgia Lines, today releases her new single, ‘Call Me By My Name’.

Written at the end of lockdown in 2020, Lines teamed up with acclaimed writer and producer Djeisan Suskov (LEISURE, Benee, Paige.)

The song explores human relationships and the challenges we all feel as humans.

“It’s about the tension that is felt in every relationship where as individuals we want to be seen, understood and valued for who we are,” says Lines. “... But knowing that compromise, sacrifice and a willingness to learn and grow is necessary to love another human.

“I am so incredibly proud of this one,” Lines continues. “Djeisan [Suskov] is such an incredible writer and producer, and it has been such a privilege working together on ‘Call Me By My Name’.

The single is accompanied by a music video, the directorial debut of Georgia Lines herself.

“I loved being a part of the directing process in this video. My inner bossy 12 year old self came to the surface in the director’s chair.

“We filmed the video whilst doing a photoshoot for ‘Call Me By My Name’ and thought it was such a fun concept of splitting screens to create strange and wonderful silhouettes of myself with all the moments that happen behind the camera.”

‘Call Me By My Name’ continues a stellar 2021 for Georgia Lines. The recently released ‘No One Knows’ achieved top 100 radio airplay and saw performances across a range of media outlets in Aotearoa. Lines also embarked on a co-headline tour with LAIIKA and was one of the performers at TUAWAHINE alongside Anika Moa, Annie Crummer, Paige and Tami Neilson.

Georgia Lines is a star on the rise with an exquisite voice that promises even more to come. Lines has just been announced as the special guest for 2021 Silver Scroll nominee, Deva Mahal’s 7-date nationwide tour. Tickets are on sale now.
