about

Kelly English’s tranquil and moving new single, “Free,” is available on all major music platforms today, July 17. The song is featured on the musician's forthcoming sophomore album, "Savannah Theory," a melancholy, indie-folk record produced by Gar Ragland. 

 "The idea of being 'free' from a specific person, or place, fits within my vision for the album because it supports the concept of creating a positive state of mind for yourself," says English. "I wanted the song to be an electric guitar-driven ballad, again taking a lot of inspiration from artists like boygenius and Julien Baker."

The stirring tune draws emotion from English’s crystal clear vocals, as well as her poignant lyricism. In one verse, the artist writes, “The cross ‘round your neck must be on fire // The muscles you move must get tired // from faking it so hard (yeah) // and taking it so far (yeah).”

lyrics

“Free”

I got caught up in your web
And now they won’t let me see you again
Have I done the worst I could do,
Or have I just fallen in love with you?

The tree in the yard is my cloud
I climbed it and then I fell out
I broke my wrist, broke my head
Now all I hear are things you said

(chorus)
Telling me
That I could be free
If I wanted to be,
I could be free
If I wanted to be

The cross ‘round your neck must be on fire
The muscles you move must get tired
From faking it so hard, yea
And taking it so far, yea

I am in over my head
Are you happy now?
I am inside of your bed
Are you coming down soon?
Cuz I die without you

(chorus)
Telling me
That I could be free
If I wanted to be,
I could be free
If I wanted to be
