One aspect of life we were all robbed of this year, and one where 2020 has demonstrated how much we rely on it, is the sense of being free. And with her newest single, Shallise is giving listeners the greatest lesson and sentiment of finding freedom.
Now I feel free, now I feel me again, like a bird free from a cage, sings the soulful singer, a feeling we can all relate to as lockdown 2.0 draws to a close.
The R&B track, titled “Free“, takes listeners on a 360-degree experience telling the story of finally being unconcealed about your feelings.
Speaking on the track Shallise shared,
“The sense of relief that comes with finally being able to share your feelings with someone. No longer holding what feels like the weight of the world on your shoulders”.
The single, which was written by Shallise, and produced by GLSUoA, showcases the singer’s sweet, nonchalant vocals which automatically resonate with listeners. It is a feeling we have all shared before which is what makes this track ever-more touching.
The track is an introduction to what Shallise has to come for 2021. The singer-songwriter has revealed that she is set to release a 5-track EP titled ‘T.R.I.A.L.S’. The title is an acronym for Temptations, Realisations, Impulse, Anger, Love, Seduction, with the project scheduled to hit streaming platforms in February 2021.
