Romy Announces Debut Album “Mid Air”, Shares New Song “Loveher”
London-based singer-songwriter and The xx member, Romy Madley Croft, aka Romy has announced her debut solo album “Mid Air” will be released on September 8, 2023.
The album comprises 11-track, featuring guest appearances from Fred Again.. and Beverly Glenn-Copeland.
Romy shared on social media, “I'm SO HAPPY that I can finally announce that my album “Mid Air” is being released on 8th September!
The album title is inspired by the fleeting, weightless and euphoric moments I've had on a dance floor, connecting with people and processing emotions, before the beat drops and brings me back to reality.”
She continued, “Mid Air is a collection of songs celebrating love, navigating loss and exploring identity. It's musically inspired by dance music, it's is a love letter to the queer clubs I first went to when I was growing up and people I met there and the music I heard that has made me feel more alive and less alone.”
- From the album, Romy unveiled the third single called “Loveher” on June 7, 2023, following “Enjoy Your Life” and “Strong”.
The track was written and produced by Romy Madley Croft and Fred again...
The accompanying music video was directed by Vic Lentaigne.
Romy said of the song, “'Loveher' is the first song I wrote that made me feel like I was ready to make a solo project, so it feels like a good place to start the album and to share now. Loveher is an attempt to distill some of the intimate, delicate moments of the early days of my relationship. Of shared moments of navigating visibility and celebrating pride in our own individual ways. It felt new but also very honest to sing the words I love her, just a true reflection of who I love.”
She added, “I can also recognise a fragility and growing of trust and friendship between Fred again.. and I in this song. Fred and I met through songwriting for other artists, this was the first song we made together that I felt I had the confidence to say, I think this song is for me. Big love to you always Fred this song will always be a special one between us, so grateful for you.”
