Post Author: Aidan Grant

The Emotive Pop Songwriter Shares the Lead Single from Her New Album

Known for her signature, piano-led ballads – Songwriter and producer Sarah Walk takes the bold move on ‘What do I Want’ to explore a synth-led, pop-centric production. While her sound might have moved on stylistically, her socio-political messaging stays true throughout.

“I wanted to make a point early on with this record that there is a lot that women feel and experience outside of what exists in their romantic relationships”

The first track from her new album, due for release in August this year – showcases her natural, remarkable musical talent. Growing up in Minneapolis, she went on to study at the world-renowned Berklee College of Music (Previous attendees include St Vincent, Aimee Mann, Melissa Ethridge) – The new album promises to be her best work to date. Produced by Leo Abrahams (Regina Spektor, Belle and Sebastian, Paul Simon, Pulp, David Byrne, Brian Eno)  The new single showcases a remarkable talent, who’s just getting started. On her new album she states:

“We take ownership when we don’t need to or feel guilty when we say no to things. We apologise when we haven’t done anything wrong. These are all things I have learned and tried to unlearn” says Sarah. “This is an album about being marginalised, being a woman, learning how to set boundaries without apology and being confident without feeling guilty for it. Learning how to love wholly without expectation.”
