Raquel Lily Releases New Song “Heartstrings”
- Birmingham-based R&B singer-songwriter Raquel Lily has shared a new song “Heartstrings”.
The song is taken from her upcoming debut album “I'm Leaving”, following “I’m Leaving”, “fuccboi”, “Mary” and “Ghost”.
She first performed the R&B ballad at her live show in 2018.
“It’s a song I wrote about a mushroom trip I went on, and the introspection that occured on how much love and appreciation I have for someone,” Raquel Lily said of the song. “It was all so damn gushy and cute that I found it to be kind of disgusting and embarrassing. It was also on the heels of exploring concepts of polyamory in a long time relationship, realizing this love wasn’t just something that could go away with some other side fling.”
The debut album contains 8-track, narrating a coming of age story about someone going through their '20s. She explained, “Everyone's been broken from something. You smoke some weed, you fall in love, they turn out to be a fuckboy, you're with someone shitty, you break up, you ghost them, you still love them, you resign, you meet someone new and there’s hope again.”
