‘Personal Message’ is the second track to be taken from her forthcoming third studio album, Emotional Eternal, out on April 29 via Domino.
Melody’s Echo Chamber’s ‘Personal Message’ highlights her vocals with strings that radiates warmth and charm.
“I played violin with Gustav Esjtes of Dungen and Josefin Runsteen. Josefin has transcended the string section to another dimension with her warm virtuosity.
I think the music revealed itself so naturally, we didn’t change much from the original material. The story is inspired by a place I lived by the sea in the south of France. When something disenchanting happened, I would take refuge near my house on the peninsula under the pines, a natural sanctuary where I sent wishes to the shore, I was soothed by its beauty. The song has this washed out wooden and salty vibe like a marine bird.”
The new single, recorded alongside Reine Fiske of Swedish rock group Dungen and Fredrik Swahn of indie band The Amazing, is taken from her forthcoming third studio album, Emotional Eternal.
The music video, directed by by the BBC’s David Corfield, captures “the natural sanctuary” that inspired Melody.
“On the surface a forest can seem like a collection of individuals but below ground they are united. A forest is a system that flourishes through sharing.”
Emotional Eternal is due for release on April 29.
