It’s the second track to be released from her forthcoming EP Here I Am, out 27 April 2018.
Describing the song, Faye said: “‘Giving In’ tells a story of someone who feels they have been trying really hard in their relationship, but that actually maybe it’s just a case of the fact they aren’t right for each other, and I wanted to portray in the video the realisation of that moment and giving yourself permission to actually give in to what just isn’t ‘meant to be’.”
The release will be marked with a one-off EP launch show at London’s The Bedford venue on 1st May, before Emily heads out on the ‘Write Like A Girl’ tour (announced this week) with Beth Keeping & Vic Allen. The up-and-coming female artists will share the stage in a writer’s round-style performance, taking it in turns to play a selection of songs from their latest releases. Each date will also feature a guest act from the local area. The three singer-songwriters met last year when they were writing in Nashville; inspired by the craft of the town’s songwriters around them – and disheartened by the gender imbalance on the US country scene – Keeping, Faye and Allen decided to host a music tour to put female songwriters back on centre stage.
