Arlissa to release new single ‘Into The Light’10 October 2013
BBC Sound of 2013 nominee Arlissa will release her stunning new single ‘Into the Light’ on November 24th (Capitol Records). Driven by tribal beats, a Celtic riff and Arlissa’s soaring vocals, ‘Into the Light’ is an exhilarating return from the Roc Nation management signee. Inspired by the likes of Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush and Crystal Fighters, Arlissa’s sound combines universal struggles of heartache and independence with production that’s more upbeat, escapist and strong. Despite stemming from dark times, ‘Into The Light’ captures that dual excitement of “not knowing what’s going to happen next, and believing that things will turn out as they’re supposed to” (a Zen proverb from her father, “no snowflake falls in the wrong place”, is cited in the song’s lyrics).
The release of ‘Into the Light’ follows its selection by Littlewoods to soundtrack their autumn and winter advertising campaign, which run from late-September through to Christmas. Check out the single below.
