Mykki Blanco has enlisted singer-songwriter Diana Gordon and rising country artist Sam Buck for ‘Your Love Was A Gift’, the second single off their forthcoming album. The track, which follows ‘Family Ties’ featuring R.E.M. frontman Micheal Stipe, was produced by Falty DL (Drew Lustman). Give it a listen below.
“‘Your Love Was a Gift’ is for me,” Blanco said in a statement. “If not the most honest, it’s the most beautiful song I’ve ever written. The idea for the song comes from my own wins and losses in the game of love and it’s a story of coming of age as much as coming to terms in adulthood with feeling unloved, yearning to be loved and yearning to be understood.”
Blanco added: “Diana Gordon is a standout songwriter and singer and I’m crafting this song with her as the lead vocal and myself taking the more experimental backseat was a deliberate choice. Diana doesn’t just glimmer on this song, she shines, she owns it she makes the heartfelt lyrics I wrote come alive.”
