Toronto, ON-based vocalist, and songwriter, SATE is back with her new track, “When I Let You Go”, which was previously an unreleased track and only heard live, it’s a nostalgic throwback that fans can truly cherish as their own.
Written about a toxic codependent relationship, “When I Let You Go” is a blistering, balls-to-the-wall anthem. It speaks to trusting your inner voice and intuition to bring you the freedom that you seek for yourself despite the feelings of pain, fear, hurt, and grief after leaving a relationship. Inspired by SATE’s late mother Salome Bey, and the likes of Betty Davis, Big Mama Thornton, Bessie Smith and Tina, the track is all about transformation, evolution, and involution.
Currently working on new material, SATE explains,
“This is a great song to bridge from where I came from with my last album, to the journey that I am currently on. The song speaks to the process of being an artist and moving forward into new eras of self-reflection and self-discovery with each new album. Each time there’s new music to share, there’s an opportunity as an artist to walk bravely on a new journey, stripping away the layers of the past. How do we move forward? We let go and step into the present.”
