Amanda Lehmann releases new single

"One Last Spin" released yesterday

After the acclaimed solo album Innocence And Illusion (see review here and our interview with here), Amanda Lehmann has released a new single yesterday, called One Last Spin.

Amanda Lehmann One Last SpinAmanda wrote and recorded this single to go with a recently released film about gambling harms also called One Last Spin. She'd learned about the extent of the issue following an interview with Sylvia Fountain, a music radio presenter at Puritans Radio, who has become actively involved with raising awareness herself, and put the Community Interest Company in touch with Amanda. Sylvia had interviewed John Myers who is also in their film, where he relates the devastating impact of the death by gambling suicide of his son, Ryan. John has made the connection to Sylvia, and Amanda has then recorded this track.

Like many people Amanda had never thought about gambling harms. She says, "I was not fully aware of the extent of gambling addiction before, and now I find myself noticing stuff all over the place luring people in, it's very scary."

Her contribution was not planned at all: "We didn't plan to get a top musician to write, record and donate a song which raises awareness about gambling harms. John (Myers) spoke to Sylvia (Fountain) who seeded Amanda's commitment. You can have all the plans in the world but the so often overlooked truth is that good things emerge from just a few good people making connections. It has been about John being John, Sylvia being Sylvia, and Amanda being Amanda. So in a way, the story of the song is the same as that of the film. John, Kelly, Tony, Martin inspired a very skilled film director to give, like Amanda, his time for free. To that extent, they are the film makers".

The track is available on all steaming services and also for download on Amanda's website.
