British newcomer Penelope Darling has revealed her new single, the delectably vulnerable and open Tears Run Red. The deliciously smooth R&B anthem features a delicate soundscape framed by Penelope’s emotionally raw and powerful vocals.
Explaining her writing history: “Every song I’ve ever written has truth, a personal story or about someone I care about. But this song is different. It’s my hardest time, sung in poetry. I’m so proud of what we have created with Tears Run Red.”
In addition to dropping the cinematic track, Tears Run Red, Penelope Darling has also unveiled the haunting elegant music video. Simple in its beauty, but emotive beyond belief, the candid visuals allow for the track itself to take centre stage.
Sharing more about what drives her, Penelope explained: “Writing music is my therapy. Having the ability to create something beautiful, out of a dark situation is like magic. This song is honest and vulnerable like nothing else I’ve ever written. The beauty of songwriting is that you discover all these emotions that you didn’t know you had. You learn so much about yourself, as well as allowing yourself to heal. If you’re someone that heals with music, I hope you find a connection with this song that allows you to do that.”
