HALIENE has shared her first solo single of 2021 “Glass Heart” via Black Hole Recordings. The Dancing Astronaut Supernova follows her staggering collaboration with ILLENIUM and Excision, “In My Mind,” as well as her June and July features with Maratone and AMIDY, “Make It To Tomorrow” and “Sanctuary,” respectively.
“Glass Heart” bridges a compelling dynamic of emotion and transparency as the the Massachusetts-born vocalist gears up for her individual performance for Seven Lions‘ Chronicles III festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre on September 11, as well as EDC Las Vegas in October. The astute vocal-trance artist got vulnerable as she explained the meaning behind the single, stating,
“’Glass Heart’ was inspired by a handwritten note I received from my late mother when I was 12 years old. Sometimes I feel that you should have been born with a tag on your toe that said: handle with care. But at the most difficult times of your life, I’ve seen an unmatched strength shine through when you need it most.”
This song is about me, who I am, how I was made—accepting myself in my fragile state—while handling the greatest losses in my life with a strength tougher than diamonds. You can break me open, but that’s when my strength truly shines. I’m easy to see through at times, but when I fall apart, that’s when my true purpose comes to life.”
I found it very interesting that glass and diamond look so similar yet hold such different capabilities. There’s a fascinating dichotomy between the two substances: one, the most breakable of all, and the other is the strongest on Earth. I celebrate both strength and fragility at once in this song, because sometimes the most formidable strength is born out of the fragility of a broken heart.”
