Fazerdaze – the project of singer-songwriter Amelia Murray – has signed to section1, accompanying the announcement with a new single called ‘Come Apart’. It marks her first release in five years, following her 2017 debut record Morningside. Check out the new song below.
“‘Come Apart’ is an angsty surrender to growing apart from people in my life,” Murray explained in a press release. “I wrote this at a time when I wasn’t accepting that some of my closest relationships were just not working. I was contorting myself to fit others, doing everything I could to keep the relationships going instead of allowing them to be what they were; ending, done. I believe this song was a way for my subconscious to shout at me to surrender and to allow things in my life to come to an end.”
After completing her tour in support of Morningside at the end of 2018, Murray struggled to write due to a deep sense of burnout. “I lost a lot of confidence during that time and my sense-of-self really eroded,” she added. “Eventually, I had to surrender to the truth of the toxic situations I was finding myself in, both professionally and personally. No longer being stoic and strong was the best thing I ever did for myself. Giving up on the people and things that weren’t working in my life was this big emotional release. I could finally put down this weight I was carrying. Ever since then, things have been flowing in my life again. I can hear my intuition, write songs and be creative again; I signed a record deal, I moved into my own place. It’s like the floodgates opened for good stuff coming back into my life.”
