Romanticism is back with Loren Oden’s debut album My Heart, My Love. On the 14-song set, the Los Angeles-based singer shares a uniquely curated sound with the listener: one with lyrical transparency and vulnerability, reminiscent of classic black soul and progressive R&B. Produced and orchestrated by multi-instrumentalist Adrian Younge, My Heart, My Love will be released on May 1st via Younge’s Linear Labs. “This album is an amalgamation of my life in love: the ups, the downs, the good, the bad and the heartbreak,” notes Oden. “I strive to be transparent in my songwriting and I hope that the listener can hear and feel all the emotions that I’ve poured into this album.” Hear lead single “Is There A Way” here: https://sym.ffm.to/lorenoden_isthereaway.
“Is There A Way” is an optimistic song about love, romance and true happiness with a person that you feel soulmate-status with. “Is There A Way is a simple melody taking the listener on a journey with me in my quest to rekindle love’s first spark,” notes Loren. “It’s that spark that sets everything in motion, and breathes life back into a failing love.” Oden wrote it after reconnecting with an old love that he had a deep connection and a very loving relationship with. This song is his heart pouring out to her trying to find a way back to the love that they once had. Directed by Younge, watch the intimate video for the song here: https://youtu.be/6dLYdmckgco.
