Anna of the North has dropped a brand new track.
Titled ‘Leaning On Myself’, it’s the first taster of new music since debut album ‘Lovers’, and comes ahead of a London show at Village Underground on 25th March.
I’ve been writing a lot of music the past year,” Anna explains. “‘Leaning On Myself” is one of the songs that came out of it, maybe one of my favourite songs. I remember flying home from the States where we wrote it and I started crying. I kind of realized I’d written the soundtrack of my life one year ago. There was a point in where I went through a lot of shit and I wasn’t feeling very well. I had one big break down where I called my mom and just knew I had to change my ways. I had to cut some people out of my life, people I loved but I knew weren’t really good for me. It was tough. But I’m good now. Every time I listen to this song it takes me back to that moment. It’s fucking sad but also powerful. I’m very grateful for where I am today. In the end you only have yourself, you know, and I guess that’s ok.”
