Today we are pleased to join forces with the great Grace Joyner for the premiere of her latest single “Hung The Moon,” off her record Settle In. The track beautifully blends some rather haunting vibe with some very minimalistic, drum driven, poppy melodies.
About the song, Joyner comments “Hung the Moon” is the opening track for the record. It references the difficulties of trying to connect with someone you love. It’s about a big love so that is how I wanted the track to feel – almost otherworldly.
Where Grace Joyner’s EP Young Fools served as an introduction to songwriting and a chance to explore her musical muse while treading her own artistic path, her debut LP, Maybe Sometimes in C revealed what she has found along the way. Joyner weaves a beautiful and delicate balance between reflecting on the trials of young love and showing a remarkable commitment to self-development.
Teaming up for the third time with producer and engineer, Wolfgang Zimmerman (Band of Horses, SUSTO), Grace Joyner looks to further her musical journey with her sophomore album Settle In.
Reflecting on the development of the album, Joyner says: “I took my time with Settle In. This record covers a lot of ground for me. I took bigger risks in my songwriting process and pushed personal boundaries by exploring content around my romantic struggles, my family, and my relationship with the pursuit of music itself. In a lot of ways my love for music feels like a relationship—at times it feels like unrequited love and at times I have found it breaking my heart. But, ultimately, you can’t choose what or who you love, and if you don’t give it a fair shot you might never know what could have been.”
