Long Island-based singer-songwriter Sarah Gross releases “Arizona”, the lead single off her debut album, Songs from the Passenger Seat, slated for release later this year. “Arizona” leans further into traditional Americana influences than her previous releases, and taps into the knack for storytelling that consistently brings her audience into her world.
“Arizona” tells the story of a toxic relationship between a partner who is desperate to help, and the other who refuses to accept it.
The single is a heartbreaking introduction to the nostalgic yet fresh sound of the overall album. Accompanied by a wild west-inspired music video slated to release on November 20th, “Arizona” is intended to encapsulate Sarah’s audience with her brutally honest lyricism and the familiar sounds of Americana folk.
“We’re all feeling emotional vulnerability at its fullest and we’ve been forced to make changes in our lives. The song is about learning to let go of things that no longer serve you, something we have all had to do in order to remain sane this year. My priority in music has always been to help and heal others. I hope this song can offer some peace and serenity to those who need it.” -Sarah Gross
