Upcoming singer-songwriter sensation Anna Leone today unveils her debut single My Soul I, released via indie-label Half Awakein collaboration with AllPoints/Believe.
An incredible taste of the singer-songwriters bracing vulnerability and catchy, entrancing melodies, My Soul I is a real, raw tale of love, loss and the unabashed yearning that comes with it.
Anna worked with Bryan Wilson on the track (GRAMMY-nominated producer, engineer and mixer, whos worked with the likes of Florence + The Machine, Wolf Alice, Arctic Monkeys, Stormzy, Lianne La Havas), and says I wrote 'My Soul I' while I was going through a tough time and it helped me deal with some of it.

Anna was born and raised in a hushed suburb of Stockholm, Sweden, where she spent most of her time immersed in video games and comic books.
