Songwriter and multidisciplinary artist Sandy Hsu has today announced her new single ‘I’ve Spent My Whole Life Dreaming’. The new track is off her EP ‘Stranger State’, which is due for release on the 28th November.
“It’s a song about feeling stuck in life, but possessing an intense yearning for something more. Though melancholy, it is ultimately hopeful and optimistic. It’s a song about my ambition to work hard and live a good life, and my dreams to be more diligent, strong, free and to maybe even one day know peace. It was recorded in one take, and has a free- flowing rhythm, with the other instrumentation following the main guitar and vocal line. The lyrics are visual and inspired by nature, detailing the behaviour of animals like spiders and oxen, the open ocean and sky.”Sandy Hsu
The song is ethereal and delicate and features some dreamy harp playing by Siwei Wong. The project was mixed and mastered by experimental pop artisan Becki Whitton (Aphir) and features violin played by Emma Kelly (Happy Axe).
The ‘Stranger State’ EP covers Hsu’s early twenties, and provides insights into Hsu’s vulnerability and honesty that she fearlessly reveals in her music.
