Watch Lucy Rose Perform Her New Single, “Morai”, for Burberry Acoustic
Singer-songwriter Lucy Rose released her new single, “Moirai”, the fourth track from her upcoming third album, Something’s Changing. You can now watch an intimate performance of the song via the embedded clip above.
The exclusive rendition was performed live for Burberry Acoustic at St James’ Church in the inner London borough of Islington. Rose chose the venue herself, having discovered it when, passing by, she heard people playing music and singing inside.
“When I wrote “Moirai”, I was thinking a lot about fate and destiny and discovered that the Greek God in control of our fates was called Moirai,” says Rose. “I sometimes feel like I live by ‘oh well, it wasn’t meant to be’ but what happens if it was and it’s just plain unfair that it didn’t. I often think about this when it comes to lost love which I’ve heard so many stories of for various reasons, ‘the one’ getting away. But it happens, wrong time, wrong place and I wanted to write a song about that.”
Something’s Changing will be available July 7th through Communion Records. The album was recorded in Brighton UK with producer Tim Bidwell and includes contributions from bassist Ben Daniels and drummer Chris Boot, The Staves, Elena Tonra (Daughter), Marcus Hamblett (Bear’s Den), and Matthew and The Atlas’ Emma Gatrill.
The forthcoming effort will also be accompanied by a documentary film which focuses on her South and Central American tour where the singer played free shows and even stayed with fans. Rose explained, “The documentary is a big part of this record and I think it explains why that trip was important and why it lead to me making the record that I’ve made. The trip gave me confidence to do things like record in just one take and the songs came more easily. Music is actually more than music for most people in the world. Lots of my friends and family won’t have that connection to music like the people I met, but to them it’s more than just having background music when you’re cooking, it’s saved them in some sort of way.”
