With her eagerly-awaited new album landing in just a few days, Samia has now dropped a pair of new singles lifted from her forthcoming full-length.
The new tracks 'Breathing Song' and 'Honey' follow on from the previously shared 'Pink Balloon' and 'Sea Lions' in previewing her sophomore LP, also called 'Honey', which is out this Friday 27th January via Grand Jury.
Speaking about the new offerings, she said, "Tried writing “Breathing Song” a thousand times and couldn’t get it right. Played one of its iterations for Molly Sarlé on zoom and she was like “you just told me a really powerful story before you played this, write it again and just tell the story,” so I did; I just said what happened, from my perspective. Got to play it for her again when it was finished and we cried. “Honey” 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."
