The new collaboration ‘Love Song’ between Anna Clendening and John K was co-penned by Sam Fisher, debuted last year as the standout single off Clendening’s label-debut Evolve EP – a stunning body of work. Now re-imagined as a duet, the duo perfectly mesh their silky vocals on “Love Song” while also delivering an intimate performance visualizer directed by Shaef.
Anna Shares, “Love Song’ is hands down one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. It has such a sweet and delicate feel talking about a deeper topic; falling in love. It can be scary at sometimes to be vulnerable, but collaborating with John K has brought such a different light to this song. His verse brings a sense of comfort and peace of mind. I am beyond grateful to have such an amazing musician, and overall human being on this collaboration. John has elevated this song to a whole new level. I couldn’t imagined anyone better to join me on this record.”
Meanwhile her debut EP, 2019’s Waves, generated over 150 million streams in under six months as she joined gnash on the road and headlined her own Waves Tour. Clendening has also lent her voice to high-profile collaborations with Illenium (“Broken Ones”), Lost Kings (“Too Far Gone”), Phantoms (“Say It”) and Matoma (“Let It Go”) before signing to Atlantic Records in 2020.
Sharing openly with fans about her own mental health journey managing anxiety ventually diagnosed as a symptom of borderline personality disorder – she’s continually channeled these challenges through the healing power of music, and her new EP is no exception. Showcasing refreshing candor, Evolve tackles these issues head on as she details the cyclical nature of her past romantic relationships. An evolution relatable to anyone who has tried their hand at love. Or being human, for that matter.
