SONG PICK: Emily Jane White – Washed Away (Video)
The Californian singer/songwriter Emily Jane White is about to release her sixth album “Immanent Fire” about the destruction of the environment. There is no reason to be cheerful about this, but the single “Washed Away” has still something uplifting to it, like the appreciation of beauty on a walk trough an untouched patch of nature.
Emily says about the song:
‘Washed Away’ is about how we are severed from our natural world, how pervasive communication through technology dominates so much of our lives. This song speaks to the creative importance of spending time in nature and how it must be seen and valued.
It’s a relationship. I feel this disconnect is directly linked to the climate crisis and ongoing destruction of the planet.
“Immanent Fire” is out on November 18. Watch the video for Song Pick of the Day “Washed Away” below:
