GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING ARTIST LEANN RIMES RELEASES NEW SONG “AWAKENING”

TAKEN FROM NEW ALBUM GOD’S WORK
Out September 16th on EverLe Records via Thirty Tigers/ The Orchard

GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress, and author LeAnn Rimes has released a new track, “awakening,” off her upcoming album, god’s work (EverLe Records via Thirty Tigers/ The Orchard, Sept. 16). The deeply personal track, written and produced by LeAnn and longtime collaborator Darrell Brown, is available to stream and download through the link HERE.
 
Beginning with the soft undertones of a piano, “awakening” takes listeners on a journey of being able to drop your walls and feel mentally, physically, and spiritually awakened. One of Rimes’ favourite songs on the record, “awakening” is based on her own experience learning to navigate her ongoing depression and anxiety and getting to a place where she can be vulnerable and open up with the world through her music and her platforms.

“When I was writing this track, I was smack dab in the middle of my own awakening,” Rimes said. “I was going through this overwhelming volume of emotions, and I was really able to channel those feelings of the pain and ecstasy of the awakening and let them shine through this song. I hope when others hear this track it helps shed some light on the experience of life and the expansion and contraction of the human experience, the way it does for me.”
 
“awakening” is the sixth song to be released off Rimes’ upcoming album, god’s work, out September 16th. The full track listing for the album includes a mix of ethereal, rhythmic, and grounded songs that take each listener on their own unique journey, exploring the duality of life and recognising the light and the dark in new ways. For god’s work, Rimes intentionally chose to go with an all-lowercase album title and track listing, explaining “If we’re arguing about why the ‘g’ is or isn’t capitalised, we’re missing the whole point. It’s so important for us to focus on the messages, rather than the nuances.
 
Rimes is currently in the midst of her tour, the story…so far, in support of god’s work and her ongoing 25th anniversary as a recording artist.
