Looking for a powerful song that will help get you through the day? RENAE has released the lyric video for her new single, “Ripples”, a beautiful song with an uplifting meaning.
In addition to writing her own songs, she has also written and placed songs for artists and groups such as Troye Sivan, Little Mix, and notably 5 Seconds of Summer, for whom she helped write “The Space Between A Rock And A Hard Place” (or Catch 22). Currently working on her second album, RENAE is creating this album from the heart. Real life experiences have a profound effect on these songs, written after going through rough patches and her own healing process.
The song opens with an emotional monologue, paired with swirls of grey. As the song progresses, bursts of colour accompany the beautiful, inspirational track. RENAE sings about the power and influence that one person can make in the world. One person can impact the lives of many others and the world, and create “Ripples”.
We wrote Ripples at a time when a friend of mine was struggling with depression — it was about how messed up he felt the world was and how he felt like he couldn’t do anything about it. I came into the session with the title ‘Ripples’ and started crying to my co-writers about my friend and the song just sort of flowed out from all of us. It was just a piano vocal at the time. Later on I brought it to my husband, Matt, and he created a beautiful, powerful production around it.
10% of the iTunes sales of Ripples will go to The Midnight Mission, an organization helping the homeless community.
