Kelly English’s tranquil and moving new single, “Free,” is available on all major music platforms today, July 17. The song is featured on the musician’s forthcoming sophomore album, “Savannah Theory,” a melancholy, indie-folk record produced and mixed by Gar Ragland.
“The idea of being ‘free’ from a specific person, or place, fits within my vision for the album because it supports the concept of creating a positive state of mind for yourself,” says English. “I wanted the song to be an electric guitar-driven ballad, again taking a lot of inspiration from artists like boygenius and Julien Baker.”
The stirring tune draws emotion from English’s crystal clear vocals, as well as her poignant lyricism. In one verse, the artist writes, “The cross ‘round your neck must be on fire // The muscles you move must get tired // from faking it so hard (yeah) // and taking it so far (yeah).” Watch the video for the full lyrics.
