Inara George has released a song “Release Me”. This follows the artist’s release of “Young Adult” and the announcement of a upcoming album Dearest Everybody.
According to the press release, the artist explains the song saying,”I wrote this song as a gift to my mother on her 70th birthday. I’d assumed that the song was too personal to put on my record. It’s a sort of love song to my father from my mother. But when I played it for my producer, Mike Andrews, he said we definitely had to record it. I’m very happy we did. I’m not sure I’ve ever shared such a personal song with the world. There’s something very liberating about it.”
The song has a slow soft piano based rhythm with the light tapping of the drums. The song is sung from the mother’s perspective and has a heartbroken calm spoken vocal as it talks about the grief she feels after her husband’s death. The song can be listened to below.
