Following the release of her acclaimed new album Second Love earlier in the year and in advance of a UK tour, Emmy the Great has shared a new single, ‘Rapids.’ It’s the first slice of new music since releasing Second Love and going on consecutive tours with both Beth Orton and Jens Lekman.
Lee-Moss says: “I realized recently that music has been my longest relationship, and they do say relationships are hard […] I wanted to write something to be released quickly, symbolically for myself, so that I know that the album cycle is over and it’s all new from here. The song ended up being about that tustle with music, about a question I am asking myself now- am I going to keep this relationship going or do I let it go? Could I even let it go? It’s a love song to music, and so I see it as the right link between Second Love and what comes next. Watch this space for more, I guess.” Listen below.
