Hayley Marsten releases her new single and video for Money Can’t Buy Class today. If there’s one lesson to learn from the song’s release it’s this: never be cruel to anyone, because you never know who is a songwriter.
Inspired by a girl who had a lot of nasty things to say about Hayley, like how she could never pull off a designer bag or fancy things, the single is taken from Hayley’s latest EP Lonestar. The previous singles, Until You and Second Fiddle, both cracked the Top 30 in the Australian Country Airplay Charts and Money Can’t Buy Class is a catchy, sassy follow-up that’s sure to impress.
Produced by Matt Fell at Love Hz Studios, the single not only showcases the vocals that took Hayley to the Top 10 in the Toyota Star Maker competition, but also her knack for entertaining storytelling and a self-awareness that’s only growing with age. “You say I can’t pull off what you’ve got, honey,” Hayley sings, “it’s cause I’m everything you’re not.”
After receiving a grant from the Regional Arts Development Fund, Hayley recently returned to her hometown of Gladstone to film the video for Money Can’t Buy Class. She brought the guys from The Filmery, based in NSW, up to Gladstone for the shoot and this video, she says, “is the most involved I’ve ever been in the concept and pre-production so I’m extra proud of this one.”
