Diana DeMuth has shared her fourth single, “Into My Arms,” today, along with a video featuring Wesley Schultz from The Lumineers. Her debut album Misadventure is due out via Thirty Tigers this Fall, and this new single follows DeMuth’s previously shared singles, “Hotel Song,” “Rose of Nantucket” and “Steady Rolling” — a cover of Two Gallants’ hit.
Produced by Simone Felice & David Baron, the soaring, new single and video was debuted by Relix, who says it’s a “cinematic video to accompany the deceptively lighthearted tune.” Demuth, in an interview with Relix, explains the song is an “ode to what it feels like to free yourself.”
DeMuth delves deeper into the message and inspiration of the song, saying, “Into My Arms is about breaking away from what holds you back (small town talk, toxic relationships, dead-end jobs) and how liberating that feels. It’s the kind of song you stomp your foot and sing at the top of your lungs to. Whenever I sing it I’m always reminded of summers when I was young and driving around late at night with the windows down. There’s a joy to it that I love and it’s message speaks to the album as a whole. I hope people feel that joy and release when they listen.”
The new single comes complete with a cinematic music video that depicts a heist — sheep masks and all. DeMuth is joined by Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers, who she was set to tour with before this years’ concert cancelations. The video is directed by Nicholas Sutton Bell and produced by Neighborhood Watch — both of whom did the entire video series for The Lumineers’ new album. Describing the video, he says, “We wanted to tell a narrative seen and unseen with this video. A woman on the run, headed to places unknown. What is in the box? Only the players know. Super proud of this video, it was a joy to explore the unknown on our creative journey together.”
Simone Felice produced the DeMuth’s forthcoming, debut album, Misadventure, due out in 2020, along with David Baron. Felice was also named one of Billboard’s Top 10 rock producers right now. Felice has also worked with The Lumineers, who DeMuth has announced tour dates with, as well as with Jade Bird, Vance Joy, Bat For Lashes, Noah Kahan, Phoebe Bridgers, Felice Brothers, Conor Oberst, and Matt Maeson.
With a few surprises coming, and stadiums that will soon be filled with DeMuth’s voice, melodies and story, 2020 will surely see her name stamped on new fan’s hearts. Stay tuned tuned for more releases and announces for Diana DeMuth.
