Another gorgeous track from Anna Leone gets a video - watch and listen to 'I Never Really'
Once again, Anna Leone, has blown us away - her sumptuous new track 'I Never Really' is one the most beautiful we've heard this year.
Anna Leone today unveils the beautifully shot night-time video for widely anticipated second single, I Never Really, released via indie-label Half Awake in collaboration with AllPoints/Believe.
An instantly classic piano-led track, I Never Really sees Annas unrivalled emotional honesty laid bare once again, her affecting vocal woven over a rich tapestry of building instrumentation that mounts to a profound crescendo. The track was produced by Bryan Wilson, the GRAMMY-nominated producer, engineer and mixer whos worked with the likes of Florence + The Machine, Wolf Alice, Arctic Monkeys, Stormzy and Lianne La Havas.
Anna says, The song deals with the idea of suppressing things you dont want to deal with and wondering if thats right or wrong and how that impacts your life and relationships. This is the most recent song Ive written and the latest one recorded in the studio so it all came together very quickly. I was writing a lot at home and this one stood out as something very sincere. I discovered the riff first and everything sort of fell into place after that, both the lyrics and the melody.
I Never Really follows debut track My Soul I, which quickly racked up over one million streams and critical acclaim across The Fader, ELLE, Mahogany, Clash Magazine, Hilly Dilly and more.
Raised in a hushed suburb of Stockholm, Sweden, Anna spent most of her time immersed in video games and comic books. It wasn't until her early teens that she discovered music as a way of dealing with emotions, and as a result, idled away hours playing cover songs on her mother's acoustic guitar. Eventually she moved on to writing her own lyrics and compositions, finding her voice and recording burgeoning songs on her phone.
Fast forward a few years and Anna Leone's sound has grown into a force to be reckoned with. With references including Bob Dylan, Lana Del Rey, Bon Iver and Laura Marling, she has successfully developed her own magnetizing take on the singer-songwriter genre; one that has set her in place as one of 2018s most promising breakthroughs.
