In her first release since 2019’s “massive and far-reaching” album, Only You Can See It, Emily Reo returns with a new single, “One Eye On The Sky,” available exclusively via Bandcamp today for their NAACP Legal Defense Fund fundraiser. “I wrote ‘One Eye On The Sky’ after a recent visit to Florida, which is where I grew up,” says Reo. “I left about 10 years ago and each time I’ve visited since I feel a stronger pull to move back. I live in a place that I recognize is a terrible fit for me, but the people I love are here and I’ve built a life around them. During my last visit I conclusively made the decision to move back to Florida and prioritize my wellbeing, but since returning home [to New York] that feels less and less possible. This song is ultimately about trying to determine if being lonely in the perfect environment or having companionship in a place that makes me feel unwell would make me happier, and whether or not I’ll ever be able to find the right balance.”
Reo’s critically acclaimed Only You Can See It is available now via Carpark.
