Jane Willow has said that ‘The Fool‘ started out as a tribute to Parton’s ‘Jolene‘, but quickly took a different path. Dutch born and Dublin dwelling Willow found inspiration in her own life – wanting to rid herself of her anger after a personal life occurrence. There’s some universality in the chorus “‘Cause if it means that much to me / How come it doesn’t mean that much to you / Oh honey I’m the fool, the fool, the fool / That keeps running round for more.” ‘The Fool‘ is the lead single from Jane Willow’s upcoming EP ‘Onward Still‘, and you can hear the determination of that declaration of perseverance in Willow’s vocal, and the driving power of her band.
