Bedouine Shares Video for New Song ‘It Wasn’t Me’

    Bedouine (aka Azniv Korkejian) has unveiled the new song ‘It Wasn’t Me’, which is taken from her upcoming album WaysidesThe track comes with an accompanying video directed by Allyson Yarrow Pierce. Check it out below.

    “This song represents a special stage to me,” Korkejian said of the new song in a statement. “I was just starting my habit of bedroom demoing. Locking myself in for hours at a time to put away a feeling was the most rewarding thing. If I felt that I captured what I was feeling, I’d send it to whomever it was about, like an elaborate letter. It was thrilling.”

    She continued, “That was 15 years ago and not much has changed. The song itself is about spending an evening with someone, thinking it was this incredibly romantic time, only to find out I was alone in that feeling. It’s a reflection of that bewilderment and the denial that can follow. It feels good to share after so long. It makes me nostalgic for bygone days, which is one of the threads that runs through Waysides.”

    Waysides, Bedouine’s third studio album, is due out October 22 via The Orchard. ‘It Wasn’t Me’ follows last month’s ‘The Wave’, which landed on our Best New Songs list.
