‘The Queen’ marks the finale of four consecutive singles released by Georgie Fisher over the last 18 months. With powerful vocals, the single is an epic ballad telling the story of a woman looking back on her life with a sense of regret. Through this haze of regret, she dreams of an imagined afterlife where she can bask in the success she missed out on in life.
Using her country-soul sound, she offers a raw and honest story infused with emotion. Tracked with a full band, she ends her collection of songs with a bang. She has plans to include the single with the other three releases on a 10-inch vinyl EP that is still to be released.

As the song progresses, she moves you from the mortal realm of what has happened, to the reflection of the main character on what she has done. There is a rawness to the vocals that touch deep in your chest as you feel for the main character of the lyrics.
