American songwriter Sarah Walk has announced that she will release her second album Another Me on August 28 via One Little Indian. On the impetus for her new album, she says:
“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 expression of this idea is captured beautifully in the song “What Do I Want?”, which is released today. In the crystal-cut track, Walk takes us through her evolving emotions and shifting thoughts, as she realises she needs to take command of her own life. The powerful percussion that undercuts the placidity of “What Do I Want?” acts like her compulsions, bubbling up and giving her belief in herself. As she sends us ascending into the chorus for the final time, she’s still asking “What Do I Want?”, but with the gliding, bright and determined sounds all around let us know she’s coming to believe in herself and her desires, and is excited to see where they will take her.
