Beloved UK singer-songwriter Luke Sital-Singh returns fresh off the back of having given his first TED talk, announcing his new EP The Weight of Love available via Dine Alone Records on June 1, 2018. Fans have already heard the mesmerising opening track “Afterneath”, which was released last month. The next taste of the EP is title track “Weight of Love” which is now available to listen to below. Both musically and lyrically, the song provides listeners with a moment to step back and recalibrate from the unrelenting speed of everyday life. This also provided Luke with the inspiration for the track.
“This song was inspired by those moments when I lose perspective on my life and my dreams and I just need to shake myself out of the mundane day to day to refresh and re-energize. For me, that’s by getting to a beach and breathing in the ocean air or climbing high up on a mountain looking down at all the noise below.”
Two other new tracks feature on the EP, the brooding “Mirrorball”, whose opening arpeggios signal a darker, more sinister sound than the rest of the EP, Luke’s inimitable vocal soon soars in, perfectly juxtaposed with the music. The four track collection is brought to a close by the quite simply beautiful “Loving You Well”, which demonstrates Luke’s innate ability to create something deeply emotive and sophisticated with little more than gently picked guitar line and vocal.
About Luke Sital-Singh:
Luke Sital-Singh is an internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter from the UK. In 2012 he released his debut single “Fail For You”, which first introduced to the world his deft ability to craft songs with a mesmerizing piercing emotional quality. The song went on to be featured in numerous TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy. At the end of 2013, Sital-Singh was featured in the BBC’s Sound of 2014 list and signed to Parlophone records, who released his debut record The Fire Inside later that year.
After a couple of years touring the world and opening for artist such as Villagers, The Staves, Martha Wainwright and Kodaline, in 2017 Sital-Singh released his sophomore record Time Is A Riddle, which featured stand out song “Killing Me.” His songs are rich and somber and have the tendency to stop you in your tracks. Of his songwriting, Sital-Singh says: “I like writing about the heavy things. There’s a lot of shallow stuff out there and that’s fine for certain contexts. My fun is diving as deep as I can. Inside myself and, if I can, inside others and writing songs that are as honest as I can make them. Honest to the struggles we all face, the sadness but more importantly, the hope.”
