Xenia Rubinos has unveiled a new song called ‘No Me Dejes Caer’. It’s the second in a series of reimagined songs from her latest album Una Rosa, following ‘La Madrugada’. A reworking of ‘Darkest Hour’, the track features vocals from Combo Chimbita’s Carolina Oliveros. Check out a video for it below.
According to a press release, the original song was “written about the loneliness that is often felt while touring – how she’d be going through a rough moment while people in the audience were consoled by her music, and how painful it was to not feel like they do.” Rubinos explained:
I remember it hurt so much because I wanted to feel like them, transformed by the show and I didn’t – I just smiled and thanked everyone, took photos with people after the show. For me, the show continued until the last person left the venue. It was always so important to me that the audience would take away any image of what they had of the show each night and that my “real” self wouldn’t get in the way or break their good feeling or inspiration.
Commenting on the song, Oliveros said that it “speaks very vulnerably about those feelings that emerge in an artist’s path, reflecting the relationship between one’s art and the passionate messages we share from the heart to those willing to listen. It came from a dark moment in search of the light and support from our friends, family, and fans that so lovingly give and receive in that exchange of energy that so uniquely happens while you feel so free playing music.”
