Samia has revealed two more singles from her upcoming album ‘Honey’ just days before the record’s release, ‘Breathing Song’ and the album’s title track.
The singer-songwriter’s second LP is due out Friday (January 27th) and has already been previewed by the tracks ‘Kill Her Freak Out’, ‘Mad At Me’, ‘Pink Balloon’, and ‘Sea Lions’.
In a press statement, Samia shared the backstory behind ‘Breathing Song’: “I tried writing it a thousand times and couldn’t get it right. I played one of its iterations for Molly Sarlé on Zoom and she said ‘you just told me a really powerful story before you played this, write it again and just tell the story’, so I did. When I finished, we both cried”.
The artist also gave insight into the meaning of ‘Honey’: “It takes place in the same world as ‘Breathing Song’. It’s about always being drunk enough that you don’t have to look around. To me it’s the saddest song I’ve ever written, because it’s mocking my attempt to convince people I was good. Caleb Wright turned it into a campfire song, though, and I love that it can be interpreted as fun too”.
