Jan Hellriegel releases new single 'For the love of glory'

Jan Hellriegel has released her new single 'For The Love Of Glory' today. 

This cinematic, cowboy, Middle Eastern inspired pop song explores themes of 'good' and 'bad'.

Says Jan, "You can’t please everyone all the time and sometimes your actions can hurt others even if you think you are doing the right thing. The question is, what is doing the right thing?"

2015 is the 'year of the co-writes' for Hellriegel. She provided the melody and chorus for this track and handed over lyric imagery to collaborator Martin Brown.

Long-time friend and notable NZ musician, Wayne Bell produced the track, layering sweet melodic choral vocals over the chorus, helping to relieve the listener of the damning symbolism of the preceding verses.

Daniel Denholm helped mix the song, embracing Jan's sonic vision of '1000 slaves pulling on the oars of a boat and moaning or grunting sounds'. 

Chris Chetland (Kog Studios) mastered the track to full clarity and sparkle.

'For The Love Of Glory' is now available for purchase and for listening pleasure oniTunes and Bandcamp.
