Listen to the Co. Wicklow artist's stunning single below.
As the acclaimed TV adaptation of Sally Rooney's Normal People hits RTÉ One tonight, be sure to listen out for Irish singer-songwriter Anna Mieke in the closing credits of the first episode.
‘Warped Window’, the third track on her 2019 debut album, Idle Mind, draws the series premiere, which has already been met with rave reviews from international critics, to an emotional close.
Earlier this month, Anna shared a new live video for 'Warped Window', directed by Myles O'Reilly (Arbutus Yarns).
"When I first wrote this song 'Warped Window', the ‘you’ throughout the song actually referred to myself," she says of the single. "It was originally written to a future version of me as an impossibly ancient woman, who I’d imagined slowly fading and merging with her surroundings. A bit of a dark image perhaps, but perhaps there's something poetic in that. So there’s a theme of age and decay but also, perseverance. Of course, a listener of the song can decide who the ‘you’ in this song might be for them.”
Take a look at the video for 'Warped Window' below:
The TV adaptation of Sally Rooney's Normal People starts at 10.15pm tonight, Tuesday April 28 on RTÉ One.
