Donna Lewis Releases New Song “Corridors”
Welsh singer-songwriter Donna Lewis released a new song “Corridors” on November 10, 2023.
The song is the second single off of her upcoming sixth studio album “Rooms With A View”, following “The Messenger” released last month.
This time, she worked with music producer Holmes Ives on the album.
The track was written by Donna Lewis, and Holmes Ives, who also produced it.
Back in 2021, when Donna Lewis went for a routine medical check-up, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Over the next year, she underwent treatment and surgery, during which she made the song.
Lewis confides, "I absolutely hate needles and when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021, I dreaded all the needles that would come with treatment. But then I met Eileen. This song is really a love letter to this amazing, caring, nurse! She was so sweet and gentle and would wrap my arm up with such care before I set off down the corridors to my treatment room. I had many other amazing nurses on my journey, and this is really a shout out to all of them.”
- The new album is expected to be released in February 2024. The record documents Donna's year long journey through breast cancer: “Cancer was the un-invited messenger, the darkdweller who I sought to banish with the love of my family, brilliant doctors and my art”.
She made the album with Holmes Ives, and was all done remotely. Some cryptically capture the trauma and the fear of the diagnosis and treatment while others were observational recollections of more mundane aspects, such as her favourite nurse or the different views from the various treatment rooms. What had been intended to be a four track EP now became an album as how the chapters of the story unfolded made it impossible to convey this momentous journey in anything less.
Donna Lewis said, “The instrumental tracks that Holmes Ives sent me coaxed the lyrics from the pages of my journals and inspired an album of stories, unlocking fears, and the climb to a healthier me -mind, body and spirit”
She added, “It is an offering of hope for anyone going through a dark tunnel. I am forever grateful to share it with you”.
Donna Lewis is to become an ambassador for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, the nation's largest and most impactful breast cancer movement.
