Singer, songwriter & storyteller Alex The Astronaut shared her latest single “Split the Sky,” available now via Nettwerk. The Australian musician’s timely track is about life coming at you fast and having to get through a tough time by rising to the occasion while, at the same time, asking herself “If I sit here and watch Harry Potter, will I be alright?” (a feeling we all know too well right now…).

Alex notes: “Right now, like billions of people around the world, I feel like I’ve been put in a blender and shaken up. Sometimes I would like to stop all these very scary things from happening and go back to being in primary school and feeling protected from it. ‘Split the Sky’ is a message of hope that I was trying to get myself to understand that, no matter what happens, there will always be that kid waiting–that the seasons will fall around and you’ll be in the sun again at some point. Watching Harry Potter is good for me and helps me to go back to how I felt back then.”
She has also shared the video for the song, which can be seen HERE and features clips from all of her previous videos. “‘Split the Sky’ felt like my early life crisis and so it only made sense to make the video out of videos that I’d made for other moments in my song-filled life,” says Alex. “Lupa J, who edited the video, is a true genius for putting them together in such a beautiful story. This video made me cry, it has so many people I love in it. I hope it makes you cry too but in a happy cathartic good way.”
