Kristine W returns to the dance floor with Love and Lies, the first part of her three-episode Issues double-album that includes the #1 single “Stars” and her brand new single, “Just a Lie”. Being distributed globally through The Orchard, all eight songs on Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies deal with love in its complexities: the deception from others as well as the lies we tell ourselves. “Just a Lie,” the album’s second single, releases today. The song was originally about death and the loss felt by those left behind, but it morphed into the single it is today after Kristine experienced a painful divorce. “I realize now how similar divorce is to a death,” she explains. “The grieving is intense. It’s mourning the loss of the relationship, the breakup of the family, the betrayal, the time invested; so many things. I was with my husband for a long time and we worked through so many challenges, I initially assumed we’d find our way through his infidelity, but what starts as just a lie sometimes grows into a tornado of betrayal and sometimes it’s best to just let go and let God guide you to your next chapter in life.” Kristine W’s “Just a Lie” is available now on Apple Music (https://music.apple.com/us/album/episode-one-love-and-lies/1480309972) and all digital retailers via Kristine’s own imprint, Fly Again Music Productions. The Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies album will be available February 2020; available for pre-order now.
“Learning there was a third person in our marriage turned out to be only the tip of the iceberg,” Kristine W reflects. “There were layers of deceit including my ex leveraging our family home to purchase a house for his other family.”
“My friends have been rocks for me during this hard time,” she continues. “Also, my kids have been incredibly supportive and so strong. They serve as reminders that while the marriage may have given me the biggest heart break I would deal with in life, it also gave me my two greatest blessings in the world: my beautiful son and daughter.”
“Just a Lie” was produced in Amsterdam by Bob Sandee / Subgroover aka Crossnaders and they manage to give the emotional track a very cool, progressive, funky electro house vibe. “I love the unique sound of the track,” Kristine says. “The Bass line, in particular, is infectious.”
