Andrew Swift Shares ‘Cheap Liquor’



Following his win at the Golden Guitar Awards for Male Artist of the Year in January, Andrew Swift continued to ride the wave of success with the release of his third studio album, Lightning Strikes and Neon Nights

The album which debuted #1 ARIA Australian Country Album, #2 ARIA Australian album (behind Peach PRC), #4 ARIA Physical Album and ARIA Top 10 Country. Produced by Matt Fell, the album features the hits ‘Young Lovers’, ‘The Good Old Days’  ‘You and Me And a Bottle Of Whiskey’ and the latest track to drop, ‘Cheap Liquor‘.

The title, Lightning Strikes & Neon Nights, is a great way to summarise this collection of songs. The ‘Lightning Strikes’ are the stories about finding moments of love and romance while the ‘Neon Nights’ are more influenced by a good night out.”

Collaborating with new and familiar faces such as Phil Barton, Travis Collins, Tenille Townes, Gretta Ziller, Taylor Moss, Alys Ffion and his girlfriend Simone Sordello; the album has a more overall contemporary feel to it than past Swift releases.

This was a fun one to write, Gretta Ziller and I have toured a whole lot together over the years but hadn’t written a song together since 2019. Getting by on Cheap Liquor is a concept that you don’t need to have the best things in life in order to have fun and that’s exactly what this song is about. We wanted that swampier sounding country vibe to compliment the working class narrative. I was definitely reflecting on my years of labouring experiences while we wrote this one.

This album follows Andrew’s highly successful album, ‘The Art Of Letting Go’, which debuted #1 on the ARIA Australian Country Album Charts and was the 5th highest selling Australian Country album of 2021.
