Speaking about ‘Emotion’ in a statement, Molly Burch explained: “Working with Jack was a dream. It was a new experience co-writing with someone and he made it really comfortable for me. I knew I wanted to transition into more of a pop sound and production, and I had already been working on new music that reflected that. When it came to this co-write, I wanted to go even more pop than what I was working on. I sent Jack my demos and a playlist of strictly fun dance songs by artists like Dua Lipa, Ciara, and Mark Ronson. We were both down to just push it to that level. For me, the theme of the song is about feeling a spectrum of emotions, embracing that sensitivity, and using it as fuel to create something positive. “Emotion” is a celebration of being alive.”
In addition to ‘Emotion’, Burch has also announced a 7″ featuring a cover of Ariana Grande’s ‘needy’, out January 15 via Captured Tracks. Following her first two albums, 2017’s Please Be Mine and 2018’s First Flower, Burch released a holiday album titled The Molly Burch Christmas Album in 2019.
