Daniel Ellsworth + The Great Lakes Releases New Song “Way You Are” featuring Ruby Amanfu
- Nashville-based alt-rock band Daniel Ellsworth + The Great Lakes teamed up with Ghanaian-born singer-songwriter Ruby Amanfu to release a new song “Way You Are”.
The accompanying music video was directed by the band themselves. The song is the first single since their third studio album “Fashion”, which was released last August.
Frontman Daniel Ellsworth said of the song, "Way You Are (ft. Ruby Amanfu)" is the beginning of a new chapter for us. All the new songs we'll release this year are completely self-recorded (with an assist from Kyle Andrews on this one) and self-produced. With three of us now, we’re shifting how we write, how we record, and feeling more free than we ever have to experiment with what those processes look like. I moved out to Los Angeles from Nashville a couple of months ago for a change of pace and to try and bring some new outside influences into our music. We're trying to be less precious with songs and just put them out into the world as we have them for people to hear. "Way You Are" features our dear friend Ruby Amanfu who kindly lent us her beautiful voice. She is one of my favorite vocalists and people in the whole world - it's a real treat to have her on this recording. "Way You Are" is a song about coping with the pain of unrequited love. It's about being treated badly but still loving the other person as much as you try not to."
