Today is the release of the latest single by DC-based singer / songwriter Emily Henry. Emily performs her own personal brand of elegant electro-infused indie pop. Known for her powerful yet sweet vocals and an authentic musical instinct, she has been compared to artists such as Joni Mitchell and Sylvan Esso.
Emily has already received praise from the likes of Earmilk and Atwood among others. It’s clear that this razor-sharp tongued pop star is set for big things.
Emily is set to release her highly anticipated sophomore album. Entitled The New World, the album is an eight-track collection of dynamic pop songs oozing with an atmospheric haze. Finding inspiration in “stories about love and magic and what it means to be a person,” the full-length album is “all about vulnerability and connection, feeling your way in the dark toward something new,” confides the songwriter. The result is a brilliant collection of enrapturing tunes that resonate deeply.
“Reach Out,” is a tribute to one of her favourite pieces of fiction, ‘The Adventure Zone,’ a Dungeons & Dragons podcast created by the McElroy family. Henry shares her unique interpretation in finding solace and community through a kaleidoscopic musical experience.
