London-based singer-songwriter Anna B Savage returns with new single Corncrakes. The track is off of her debut album A Common Turn, to be released Jan 29th via City Slang.
Savage has a voice that’s full of character. She’s backed by guitar and harmonies. The chorus is easy to remember.
The music video, directed by Chris Howard (Planet Earth Live, Springwatch, Autumnwatch), is a representation of the happiness, confusion, longing, desire, sadness, and also a stoicism that Savage has experienced in the last few years. Following the release of her recent singles, Chelsea Hotel #3, Dead Pursuits, and A Common Tern, Corncrakes is about Savage exploring and learning to come to terms with her own emotions and learning to live through them.
She says: “At this moment in my life, I was entering a seismic shift. I felt like I was getting clues from the universe, and all I needed to do to ‘work it all out’ was piece them together. These clues came in the form of birds – in this instance a corncrake. I now see the corncrake as a layout for a theme: something tangible, but imperceptible, evident but not necessarily visible.”
All Savage’s words are poetry. It’s personal and honest. Listen to Corncrakes below!
