Inara George has released “Slow Dance,” the latest single from her upcoming solo album Dearest Everybody, out January 19th. A bittersweet reminiscing of her youth, “Slow Dance” showcases an entrancing rhythm and ethereal vocals, its dreamlike quality providing a tangible snapshot of Inara’s free-spirited formative years. Listen to the song now below.
“When I turned 42 I had a “Slow Dance” party,” says Inara on the inspiration behind the song. “It was a great party… lots of dancing and carousing. The night reminded me of a certain part of myself from my youth. A part that isn’t really as available to me, nor is something that I long to be anymore. But still, the next day left me with a real sense of nostalgia. Growing older can be painful. I had some metaphorical growing pains. But one of the gifts of getting older is that I know that the end of something always leads to another beginning.”
Dearest Everybody will be released digitally via Release Me Records, with vinyl available via Slow Down Sounds.
