Following the release of ‘Family Ties’ with R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe earlier this year, Mykki Blanco is continuing to tease their upcoming new project, sharing new track ‘Your Love Was A Gift’ with Diana Gordon and Sam Buck.
“‘Your Love Was a Gift’ is for me,” mentions Mykki. “If not the most honest, it’s the most beautiful song I’ve ever written. The idea for the song comes from my own wins and losses in the game of love and it’s a story of coming of age as much as coming to terms in adulthood with feeling unloved, yearning to be loved and yearning to be understood.”
“Diana Gordon is a standout songwriter and singer and I’m crafting this song with her as the lead vocal and myself taking the more experimental backseat was a deliberate choice,” Mykki continues. “Diana doesn’t just glimmer on this song, she shines, she owns it she makes the heartfelt lyrics I wrote come alive.”
