Cassidy Mann Returns With New Song “Election Night”
- Canadian singer-songwriter Cassidy Mann returned with a new song “Election Night” on September 9, 2021.
It is her first single since the 2020 EP “A Memory” with Roman Clarke.
The track was co-produced by Cassidy Mann and Roman Clarke.
The lyrics focus on a couple that moved beyond just friends that night but ultimately ended as strangers.
“I was watching people around me change or come into themselves as a direct result of social justice movements,” Cassidy Mann explained of the song in a statement. “It was becoming really clear what mattered to me when it came to morals, values and the kind of people I wanted in my life. I thought it would be really interesting to use that timeline as a sort of framework for a tragic love story. I hadn't heard that period of time talked about in that context and it was fascinating to me so I did my best to write about it.”
- She wrote the song before the U.S. election in 2020. “I started writing 'Election Night' just before the U.S. election in 2020. For better or worse, elections are a good time for self-reflection," She said. “Different political eras affect society as a whole, but in my new single I wanted to dig into how it also affects relationships on a more intimate level. 'It's a paradox, going back in time' speaks to the idea of wanting to experience something again, or change how it happened, but realizing if you did that then the present version of your world would not exist in the same way. You are better because you've learned something and grown. We have to accept things as they happen and just keep trying to take the right next step.”
