Gena Rose Bruce has just released her first new material since her second album, ‘Deep Is the Way’, with the single ‘Lighting Up’. The song is set to be included on an upcoming EP and has been accompanied by a performance video.
Speaking on the track, Bruce said: “For a long time I would just suppress how I was feeling and would give off the fake ‘I don’t care about anything’ vibe. But I came to a point where I was just numb. You stop the pain, you stop the joy. ‘Lighting Up’ is about facing reality and being honest with your feelings and choosing to walk in the light and let love in.”
The recording for ‘Lighting Up’ was done at Iconic Sound Park Studios in Melbourne, a place that holds special meaning for Bruce as it was also where her album ‘Deep Is the Way’ was recorded.
Reflecting on the experience, Bruce mentioned: “I think there is something special about actually being able to see what happens in the studio when a live recording takes place. It’s all about the performance and the energy in the room, and the connection with each musician, and I really feel we captured that with ‘Lighting Up’.
