One Direction songwriter-songwriter Fiona Bevan released her first new solo music in three years.
Acclaimed singer-songwriter – who co-wrote boy group’s mega-hit “Little Things” with Ed Sheeran – is back with haunting new breakout single, “Revelations,” from his upcoming EP .
Speaking about the moving track and the inspiration, Fiona said, “I wrote ‘Revelations’ after one of those moments that wake you up in the middle of the night and make you change something drastically in your life. .. It’s a breakup song about successfully breaking the spell of a toxic relationship and going.
“It’s full of the driving energy of that moment of realization, with a really strong guitar riff, inspired by Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’, an urgent rising vocal melody, a chorus like an incantation, inviting for change, and four to four -g toms with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs ‘Maps’ feeling. There is a magical time signature / tempo change, inspired by ‘Some Velvet Morning’, with the song emerging in a psychedelic midsection, full of temple bells of meditation, a storm of whirling violins and a transition to calm and resolution. I wanted this song to be an entire movie in one … visual, cinematic, dramatic. “
“Revelations” is the sequel to 2018’s “Wild Angels Sweet Demons”.
Meanwhile, Fiona was recently invited by Abba’s BJORN ULVAEUS to become an ambassador for her new initiative, Credits Due, which aims to address royalty issues in music.
She said in a statement, “We are delighted to be working with the Music Rights Awareness Foundation to launch Credits Due – an initiative that will move the industry in a better direction by ensuring that creators are paid fairly. As a songwriter and multi-platinum artist, I have personally experienced the pain of missing and slow payments, resulting from lack of proper credit data, after writing huge hits. We have a great opportunity to change that if the industry steps up, uses new technology, and most importantly, engages our songwriters, producers and performers in the task of ensuring that credits are attached to recordings at the time of creation.
