Molly Payton has shared her first new music of 2021. ‘Honey’, which the London-based artist worked on with frequent collaborator Oli Barton-Wood, producer Jimmy Hogarth, and songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich, arrives today alongside an accompanying Taylor Mansfield-directed video. Check it out below.
“‘Honey’ is about that moment in a relationship where things stop working as well as they used to,” Payton explained in a press statement. “This song was me taking responsibility for my part in the decay of it all, acknowledging that I’d been distant and that I’d keep trying to make things work. I think there’s also an undercurrent of frustration with myself for letting my past interfere with my present. Like most songs I write it was mostly just me working through my own mind and emotions, but I guess the message of this song would be to make sure you’re not giving too much of yourself away. Take time to make sure you’re ok so that you can support the people you love.”
Last year, Molly Payton released her EP Porcupine, one of our favorite EPs of 2020. Revisit our Artist Spotlight Q&A with Molly Payton.
