Canadian alt pop-inspired singer/songwriter/composer Adaline is back with her brand-new single, “Part of You”.
Produced and co-written by Maximilian Jaeger (Diplo, Big Sean), the track is a bright feel-good offering on the surface, with a dark lyrical theme stemming from the tension of being irrevocably tied to someone. The new offering is also the first track off of her forthcoming EP dear illusion, set to be released October 25th, 2019.
The video touches on themes of body positivity and is one of the most vulnerable pieces of art the songwriter has released to date.
On the video, Adaline had this to say,
“When I was out looking for wardrobe for the video I got a call from the director. She said, ‘you’re always draped and covered in photos/videos, but this song is about being exposed. I think you should dance around in your underwear’. She was right, I’m generally quite conservative in what I wear so my initial reaction was fear but I immediately said yes.” Adaline continues, “I knew it would challenge me in a way that would be incredibly healing. I’m not the first curvy woman in the world to struggle with body love, especially in my younger years. So, when life gives a platform and an opportunity to face some past trauma you accept. The song called for vulnerability and I wanted to share that artistically in a very honest way.”
Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
