“All proceeds from @Bandcamp sales of this song today, June 5th, are going directly the the Loveland Therapy Fund,” Torres said in a statement on Twitter.
The Loveland Therapy Fund works towards giving inclusive therapy sessions for black women, providing them with financial assistance to help with making therapy more affordable. The organization also provides comprehensive lists of mental health professionals who can provide competent services to black women and girls.
Torres begins the song with her deep voice softly scaling through the lyrics, a piano quietly joining her in the background. “Too Big for the Glory Hole” soothingly moves through, Torres’ voice carrying a deep feeling in the melancholy tune. She sings how she wants to be loved forever, the slow piano and electronic hum dragging out emotion.
Bandcamp is currently doing a promotion on the first Friday of each month where they waive their revenue share, giving all proceeds to the artist to help during COVID-19. The music service will also be donating 100 percent of their sales on June 19 to the NAACP.
UPDATE (6/15): Torres has shared a new video for her recently-released song “Too Big for the Glory Hole.” The video takes an intimate look at the singer’s life in her home, using stop motion techniques to express the passage of time.
