Samia has unveiled two more singles from her new album Honey: ‘Breathing Song’ and the title track. The singer-songwriter’s sophomore LP is out Friday (January 27), and it’s already been previewed by the songs ‘Kill Her Freak Out’, ‘Mad At Me’, ‘Pink Balloon’, and ‘Sea Lions’. Listen to ‘Breathing Song’ and ‘Honey’ below.
“Tried writing ‘Breathing Song’ a thousand times and couldn’t get it right,” Samia said in a press release. “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’,” she added. “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.”
