Elaine releases a new song “Fading Away”
Emerging singer Elaine has released her new single “Fading Away”. She co-wrote it with Gallant, Spencer Stewart and STINT.
Produced by STINTthe dejected ballad hears a vulnerable Elaine recounting the events leading up to a breakup.
“All the times you hurt me but I always stayed / All the things I did for you, oh, baby, why did you let me down? / Put all my faith in us, why did you have to leave me underground? she sings to the heartbreaking tune.
“‘Fading Away’ is a narration of my experience watching someone I loved fall apart and the deterioration of the relationship that followed,” Elaine told R&B.
“Fading Away” is the South African singer’s third release of the year. It follows “Deja Vu” and “Shine”. All three songs will appear on Elaine’s upcoming EP, which will be released on Columbia Records.
“Expect a confession of my raw emotions, of the tragic moments I encountered while navigating love and the healing process,” Elaine says of her upcoming project. “For the most part, I was bluesy while making this project, but I’ve since found a new perspective on it. The color now has a calming and tranquil influence on me and has evoked a rebirth in me and my creativity.
Elaine’s new EP will follow her 2019 EP, Elements. She made history as the first independent artist to reach No. 1 on Apple Music’s Sub-Saharan Africa chart.
On October 19, Elaine will headline the Ground Village R&B concert at SOB’s in New York.
