Jackie Castro Shares New Song “Hourglass”
- Colombian-American alt-pop singer-songwriter Jackie Castro has shared a new song “Hourglass”.
The song paid tribute to her grandmother. The accompanying music video was directed by Tyler Barksdale.
“I wrote Hourglass the day after I got the call that my grandmother would be passing away in a matter of days after an 8-year battle with dementia,” she said of the song. “What I realized I was grieving the most in that moment was the loss of time. I wanted to get back all of those years that my grandma was still here but unable to communicate with me. There was so much more I wanted to know about her, but time was running out and I couldn’t get it back.”
She continued, “Memory loss brings about a different kind of pain and this song is me honestly addressing all the questions and fears I had as my time with her came to a close. I hope this song helps people feel understood, comforted, and like they’re not alone in their pain. I hope it helps them process their own feelings the way this song has helped me process and come to peace with mine.”
The track will appear on her upcoming debut album, which is expected to be released in later this year or early 2020.
