Delilah releases her new single, "Apologies", from her upcoming album UNSCATHED!
Online PR News – 27-June-2010 – – NEW YORK – Delilah, whose soul- blues- and rock-infused songs put her in contention with some of music’s most well-spoken, out-spoken songstresses, is back from the trenches of New York City’s live music scene with a soon-to-be-released album, UNSCATHED. In line with her earlier work, the album’s first released single, “Apologies,” makes it clear that Delilah is not all that interested in holding a polite conversation – at least with the people who have done her wrong.
Instead, the new song taps the deep-set vein that lures music lovers to flock to hear her perform live: With Delilah, it’s all about the truth, no matter how grave, unsettling or uncomfortable the story may be.
“Apologies” analyzes the inner-head tumult caused by a bad breakup and too many years of self-blame. It tells of a woman’s agonizing search for redemption for the damage she might have caused by asking too many unanswerable questions. Then comes the moment, years later, that she realizes the blame isn’t all hers – and she finds peace and justice with an abrupt ending all her own: “I’m really sorry for the day you were conceived!”
With heavy, almost hard-core bass guitar undertones and a deep, dark melody that weaves seamlessly with Delilah’s no-holds-barred lyrics, “Apologies” memorializes the singer-songwriter’s ever-evolving sound and transformation to a deeper, smoldering – and practically raw – musicality.
“This song is definitely part of my musical evolution – it represents my arrival,” says Delilah, whose past repertoire includes Pop Latin, Hip Hop, R&B and Blues/Soul, as marked on her previous album, DELILAH. “It’s the beginning of my edgier, heavier rock journey.”
Delilah chose the deep and darkly personal “Apologies” as her debut peek into UNSCATHED in part because fans have already taken to it. They can relate to the fact that “yes, we’ve all made mistakes we wish we hadn’t, but so what?” says Delilah. “Do them with gusto and be proud of who you are despite those mistakes. Apologize for your part, but don't apologize for it all because you're not the only one with flaws and imperfections!”
