Rina Sawayama Premieres New Song “Hurricanes” on BBC Radio 1
Japanese-British singer-songwriter Rina Sawayama premiered a new song “Hurricanes” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the fifth single off of her upcoming sophomore album “Hold the Girl”.
It was written and produced by Rina Sawayama and Adam Crisp.
Rina Sawayama told Clara Amfo about the song, “Honestly. And I think there's like three more singles. We could have probably put out you know, I'm just so confident in the songwriting and I feel like I've really improved as a songwriter and with 'Hurricanes'. It was actually one that I didn't get any help lyrically, for most part. Usually I start the lyrics and the melody with another songwriter, but this one I just started the lyrics and the melody on my own, but, this was a song that I was like, Oh, I can write on my own.”
- She continued, “Hurricane is me in 2020 2021 where I felt like I was constantly putting myself in situations of self sabotage constantly doubting myself, you know, running and running, running into a hurricane. And I think within the album anyway, it's like a moment of kind of reckoning. It's a moment of recognition about what I was doing. It kind of follows off to this string of kind of chaotic and sad and quite dark songs and the album so it's like a nice pop rock relief.”
The new album comprises 13-track and is set to be released on September 16, 2022 via Dirty Hit.
