The Countdown Begins
Only 4 days away until STEADY is OUT! My new EP is slowly coming to life online and it is exciting.
I wanted to let you know that there is one small way you can help be a part of this release- and that is to pre-save the song! It helps me loads, as Spotify, Apple Music and the other platforms can see that people are excited about the song, and it can evenutally help my music get circulated in the future. If you use Spotify, Apple Music, or Deezer, you can pre-save the song HERE. Thank you for supporting me in this way :)
I thought I would also write a little more about the song, just in case you are curious about it.
When was the song written? I wrote the chorus of the song in Summer of 2018 when I was in the States for a production camp. I didn't manage to write the verses and bridge until January 2019, when the whole idea of the song was fleshed out at a writing retreat I did with a friend. This song is probably the only one to date that has taken me so long to complete. But I believed in it, and managed to create a whole song. Little did I know that the song was teaching me a lesson about remaining steady the entire time...
What was the inspiration for the song? I was actually listening to a talk and the speaker was mentioning icebergs. As he was describing them, I thought, "Wow, this is the perfect imagery for the song," and then I sat down and wrote the rest of the lyrics right then.
What was the hardest part of the journey of writing and releasing this song? Gosh, this song has been such a challenge. I worked with two different producers, recorded vocals in multiple locations, got stuck in the mastering process, had to redesign the artwork unexpectedly and on top of that- still be excited! Honestly, I wanted to give up on this song, but that would be a be ironic considering that the song is about remaining steady in achieving your goals!
Why is this the next song to be released? I had a listening party with some friends and we walked through different release orders of all the songs. Their feedback was really valuable, and I just felt like it make sense for STEADY to be the next song. I love the song, I love the music, and I love how the people who have already heard it are excited about it!
I am looking forward to sharing more about the song with you in the coming days :)
