renforshort has shared her new single, ‘afterthoughts’.
It’s taken from the soundtrack for upcoming Disney film Clouds, which is based on the memoir Fly a Little Higher: How God Answered a Mom’s Small Prayer in a Big Way, about the life and death of singer-songwriter Zach Sobiech.
“‘afterthoughts’ is a really different song for me,” she says. “It follows a way different narrative than most of my other songs and allowed me to be more vulnerable than I have been in the past. Immediately after I watched ‘Clouds’ for the first time ,I was filled with emotion and all these thoughts were going through my head.”
“It’s a very emotional movie, it touches on love romantically and familial, health, and fulfilling your life and achieving your dreams.”
She continues: “These are all things that I believe the average person thinks or has at least thought about before. I think of these things all the time and expressing them is hard. That’s a big reason why I was so stoked to be a part of this. This song is basically a stream of consciousness and the things that keep me up at night. They’re the things that worry me and make me happy.”
Check it out below. The film itself is out from tomorrow, Friday 16th October.
