With their second album being released, Lawson have discussed that their single, 'Roads', is being released in the United States as their chance to break into the US market.
The second album can often be the most difficult task for some bands. For Lawson, considering how their debut album went platinum, they certainly felt the pressure with their second. "I think it's pressure in a good way, really", explained Andy Brown, the band's lead vocalist when he spoke to Contact Music recently. This pressure helped push them to record at the prestigious Blackbird Studios in Nashville, leading to a discussion about how their music translates to an American audience.
'Roads' is the first Lawson single released in America
Having fully discussed the feelings of working in Nashville, and how the studio effected their musical output, the Liverpool-based band took to discussing the possibility of working in America more often. "We love American music; some of our favourite bands are American" explained Brown. He continued to reveal how their work in Nashville and Los Angeles had led to them using American producers on both albums, influencing their music with an American vibe.

Hi Andy, how are you doing today?
Good, thank you! I've got a day off so I'm chilling at home, which is a nice change to being out on the road. We've been promoting the brand new single so we've been a little bit busy over the last month or so.
Ah great, so you've been playing gigs too?
We've done some gigs; we did a couple of dates with Take That. Basically, we've just been roaming up and down the country, doing a few bits and bobs.
