Floramay Holliday’s new single is full of heart, an emotive song that will leave listeners reflecting on the people they care about. Her words are as beautiful as the melody, earnest lyrics of love performed with honesty. The upbeat ‘Hearts Have Wings’ swells and rises on melodic currents, taking flight on Holliday’s pure vocal and and the propulsive percussion. The sound and production are warm, rich and full, perfect for such a sincere song of love.
Holliday says of the song: “Working on this song reminded me of why I got into music in the first place and why I should keep pushing. I’ve been inspired to write a lot lately, and feel the need to record and share a positive message. This song was inspired by a longing to go home to South Carolina to see my mother during a difficult time, and producer Will Holland and his all-star assembly of musicians truly captured this feeling.”
In the past, Holliday has worked with the likes of Willie Nelson, Ray Benson and Guy Clark and her debut album was recommended for nomination in the 42nd annual GRAMMY Awards. However, this single is Holliday’s first new music in fourteen years. Later in 2023, it will appear on an as-yet untitled new EP, recorded with acclaimed producer Will Holland (Pixies, Dead Can Dance). More news to follow.
