Connie Constance has shared details of her new album ‘Miss Power’.
The songwriter revels in independence, melding pop tropes together with musicality rooted in some indie greats. Recalling everyone from Florence + The Machine through to Paul Weller – she previously covered ‘English Rose’, y’know – her new album pushes Connie Constance into yet more spheres.
Out on November 4th, new album ‘Miss Power’ follows a recent tour alongside Nova Twins, with Connie becoming inspired by their energy.
New song ‘Till The World’s Awake’ leads the way, a terrific blast of synth-pop that keeps the sonics raw, and the lyrics direct. An urgent, contagious return, it deals with community and identity in a subtle but striking way.
Connie Constance explains…
The beast, the party, the anthem. Day one of this saturated over stimulating world and everything feels possible. For the most part this song for me was just the indie dance single of my dreams, since writing it it has taken on a whole other meaning. It’s truly a letter to the universe, to what some people may call God, others Allah, and so on. It’s a song that says thank you for looking out for me, Thank you for the chance of making my dreams a reality, and Thank you for the beautiful people that you have kept around me.
When I think of the minority communities that I live and love within in the UK. It feels like an empowering message that no matter how much the world we live in tries to distract us from our power, make us feel small or as if we don’t fit in… it cannot take away from us the work we have done and who we are when we are together building our own opportunities amongst one another and shaping our own realities. “I know that we’ve got enough love to give away, and they cannot replace all the moves we’ve made, and all the nights we’ve stayed up till the worlds awake”. We have to work extra hard to be understood, but we will be, and until the worlds awake we have each other and no one can take that from us.”
Tune in now.
