Today we’re happy to bring you the exclusive premiere of “This Silence.” The latest single and video from Nashville-based artist Hannah Fairlight, whose latest album “Muscle & Skin”, is set to be released on June 12th, 2020.
Fairlight has had a DIY approach with many aspects for her latest project, especially with the release of this latest video. Hannah has taken up the role of director, editor, and also did the filming which was shot in isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.
The haunting track is featured as the opener for “Muscle & Skin”. You can also get access to the first two singles by pre-ordering the album via Itunes and Spotify.
The songs on the album date back years to recent months, exploring a span of Hannah’s more personal catalogue. She spoke a bit about the content by saying:
I wanted to reveal my true self and confront some of the struggles I’ve faced. No box to fit into, no commercial outlets to impress. I wanted to be completely honest. I got sick of dressing things up, trying to ‘be something’. I wanted to let out the real, raw songwriter underneath
The album which is the third studio release from Fairlight was recorded and produced along with Austin Hoke and mixed by Grammy-nominated Brett Ryan Stewart.
Fairlight grew up in rural Iowa playing classical piano and saxophone from eight years old and starting original songs at age twelve. Inspired as a teen by role models that include Patti Smith and Tori Amos, she picked up guitar and cut her teeth performing in New York City at clubs like CBGB and The Bitter End. Fairlight has since lived and performed around the world, released two studio albums after moving to Nashville, “Creatures of Habit” and “Bright Future”.
