Maia Friedman Releases New Song ‘Sunny Room’

    Maia Friedman has unveiled ‘Sunny Room’, the final single from her upcoming debut LP Under the New Light. Check it out below, alongside a live video for the track.

    “The search for my sunny room – my internal place of peace, comfort and calm – is a daily endeavor, and sometimes feels like a tug-of-war,” Friedman said in a press statement. “This song is a wish that the comforting space within one’s self is bright enough to outshine moments of darkness. As someone who has struggled with depression and anxiety, I know that these sunny rooms can often be difficult to find, and yet I do my best to renew the search time and time again.”

    She continued: “For ‘Sunny Room’, I wanted to create a video that was intimate, raw and still. We drove up to Marlboro, NY the day after an ice storm in early February, and the hills and trees were completely sparkling. You could hear a crystalline sound coming from the icy branches moving with the wind. My dear friend Stephen Spaccarelli was kind enough to let us set up in his studio and his son Mateo helped Philip capture the audio. It was a special and lucky day – very grateful to have been amongst friends in such a beautiful place.”

    Under the New Light will be out on March 11 via Last Gang Records. It includes the previously unveiled singles ‘Where the Rocks Are’ and ‘First to Love’.
