Grace Cummings – Common Man

Rising Australian star Grace Cummings has released “Common Man,” the second track taken from her upcoming album Ramona (out April 5th via ATO Records). The bluesy, Western-infused track boasts powerful vocals from Grace while grappling with her desire to be more than the common man. The accompanying visualizer is compiled of nostalgia-inducing Western film clips, curating an immaculate retro country vibe.

Of the song, Grace says “This song is about being a colorful bird and never, ever wanting to be a pigeon. Somebody I used to know wrote a song called common man about working nine to five and coming home and having a cup of tea and going to bed and it made me want to have a fucking panic attack. I wish I could tell people it was about riding off into the distance on the back of a white horse with a Cowboy in Austin Texas, but it’s not.”

In addition to the new song, Grace has announced a U.S. tour that kicks off in May with stops in Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Brooklyn and more along with her debut at Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta.
