This will be the third track released from the award-winning singer’s forthcoming album
Irish singer-songwriter RuthAnne is releasing her new single, ‘Liquid,’ this Friday, 10 August.
Over the past year, the songs RuthAnne has written (including Niall Horan’s ‘Slow Hands’ and Martin Garrix’s ‘In The Name Of Love’) have garnered over 1.5 billion streams.
Following debut singles ‘The Vow’ and ‘Take My Place,’ ‘Liquid’ is a bop reminiscent of 90s hip hop/soul music.
While the influence of that era and those genres is audible in the production and vocals of this single, its beat is fresh and its lyrics are poignant enough to give the song a modern relevance.
Melodic guitar riffs mix with rhythmic beats and RuthAnne’s soulful vocals in this musical commentary on social media and negativity.
"'Liquid’ is basically my response to any haters, fake friends and trolls out there,” RuthAnne says, speaking of the upcoming single. “People seem to just talk on a surface level to each other, but then tear each other apart behind their back, or from behind a computer screen. Everyone has become a critic which means that more and more people are feeling the pressure to be perfect…to portray perfection.
“I allowed myself to be real about shit that wasn’t so great in my life and then write this song, calling it out for what it is and not letting any of it get to me anymore.”
The Dublin-born songstress received two BMI rewards in May for her work on ‘Slow Hands’ and ‘In The Name Of Love.’ She also supported Alanis Morissette on her UK and Irish tour and joined Niall Horan on his Flicker World Tour.
