Mega songwriter DELACEY premieres a vulnerable song alongside a deeply personal short film titled “Everything You Need To Know About Me Today.” The new single is her proper introduction for what fans can expect on her sophomore project later this year.
The short film was directed by her cousin Spencer Leonard and shot in her parents Michigan hometown where Delacey was surrounded by her family.
“As far back as I can remember I’ve been writing. Scripts, poems, lyrics, books, you name it,” Delacey shares straight from her heart. “Flash forward, I put out my debut album at the beginning of a pandemic. I had never felt so lost and distant from writing. Not only from Covid. All the time standing still made me really look at my life. I felt like I had fallen out of love with music. I decided I wasn’t going to put out any music. I couldn’t bring myself to write. Not even for someone else. One very, very emotional detached day I had therapy, sat on my bed and stared at nothing for five hours. Then I talked to my grandpa on the phone for 45 minutes and cried. I felt sorry for myself. I picked up my guitar that I hadn’t touched in many months and sat in my bathtub fully clothed (like I did when I was a little girl) and sang (in so many words) this song. “Everything You Need To Know About Me Today” is not intended as a pop song. It’s 15 verses. I don’t know what it is but this song is healing in a very surreal way. I have been through a lot in my life and have been too scared to face some things that have happened when I was too young. I cried after writing it but I also felt so alive and free. In a way, I felt like I had been waiting my whole life to write and sing these words. I recorded this song under a blanket in my house with the very first guitar I ever owned and a glass of whiskey. I’m singing with my emotions in this moment, and also a little drunk, and recorded it for myself, not for anyone else. This song inspired me to write again and I can’t wait to share my second album with my beautiful fans who stuck with me.”
I caught up with Delacey a couple of years ago for an in-depth interview on her songwriting and singles. Check out the interview below.
