Allen Ling Releases New Song “Remember”
American-Chinese singer-songwriter Allen Ling released the final track of a trilogy called “Remember” on November 2, 2023.
He started the trilogy in 2020, the first part “Straight Into The Ocean” was released in June 2020, and the second part “A Name In Your Book” was released back in July.
The personal and autobiographical set of tracks, both witnesses and chronicles various phases of Allen Ling’s recovery.
On the track, he teamed up with Dave Lopez, who is a member of San Francisco-based hip-hop/rock band Flipsyde.
Allen Ling describes the song as “a song worth listening to for anyone who remembers a past love.”
- He said of the song, “I was listening to instrumental tracks with Dave Lopez at the Soundwave rehearsal studio. The one produced by Ed Claire stood out for me. I immediately started singing a melody with lyrics at the same time with the instrumental track. It had been 3 plus years since ‘the break up’, but I still had to squeeze that last little bit of tragedy out of me.”
He added, “I believe some of the best works of art and music are born from incredible suffering. I try not to seek out heartbreak, but if you truly live and take chances it will always find you.”
