Connor Roff Returns With New Song “Sunlight”
Canadian singer-songwriter Connor Roff returned with a new song “Sunlight” on August 1, 2023.
The song is his first music in two years since 2021 single “Soldier”.
The track was written by Connor Roff and produced by James Turner.
The lyric video for the song will be coming on August 9, 2023.
Also, the song will appear on his upcoming debut album.
Connor Roff said of the song, My new song, 'Sunlight,' was inspired by being in a same sex relationship and the healing power of nature. It encapsulates that warm and euphoric feeling that comes with beginning a new relationship, as well as the connection and presence we experience when surrounded by nature.”
He continued, “Being in nature has the power to heal and transform our greatest pains. It is our greatest teacher. Something as simple as noticing and feeling sunlight on your face or body is a beautiful thing, whether during the heart of summer or the depths of winter.”
- He explained about making process, “I originally wrote this song in London, England while sitting outside in the sun on Southbank. I remember scribbling down the lyrics on a napkin and then going home to record a rough demo. I had this idea of building harmonies and repeating one simple refrain.”
He continued, “While part of the London Contemporary Voices choir, we performed an arrangement of this song acapella to a blindfolded audience in a venue called Omeara at London Bridge. Later, my producer James Turner and I recorded the track across international waters during Covid lockdown, him in the UK and I in Vancouver.”
He added, “We asked our good friend Ilā Kamalagharan, director of London Contemporary Voices choir, to add more ethereal parts with their voice, imbuing 'Sunlight' with a beautiful, swirling texture of sound and a middle 8 section which reminds me of whale calls.”
