In anticipation of her upcoming tour of England and Wales, Emmy The Great shares brand new track “Rapids”. It’s the first taste of new music from Emma Lee-Moss since her consecutive US tours with Beth Orton and Jens Lekman.
“I realized recently that music has been my longest relationship, and they do say relationships are hard.” Emma says of “Rapids”. “The process of making Second Love was a long process, and it changed me. Everything in my life being clearer now, I see that music has always been at its center, confounding or delighting me depending on its mood. Now that Second Love is finished and out in the world, I am eager to be making things and capitalizing on these new realizations. Rapids is the first result of pulling on this thread.
'I wanted to write something to be released quickly, symbolically for myself, so that I know that the album cycle is over and it's all new from here. The song ended up being about that tustle with music, about a question I am asking myself now- am I going to keep this relationship going or do I let it go? Could I even let it go? It's a love song to music, and so I see it as the right link between Second love and what comes next. Watch this space for more, I guess.”
