Because we love Montaigne, we’re giving a little love to her pop-fuelled, newly released single ‘Because I Love You’ on the site this morning.
Released on Friday, ‘Because I Love You’ is an infectious little track, but in amongst all the hopefulness and optimism found in the music bed is a lyrical tale of a love that’s not really what you thought it was.
“It’s a look back at what you’d known to be a healthy and fulfilling relationship whilst experiencing it, but with a little perspective discovered was pretty bad,” Montaigne explains. “I wrote this song and only AFTER writing it did I realise that that’s how I felt the whole time. It’s a classic “love is blind” narrative. I love this song, it’s probably the most fun thing I’ve ever written.”
It’s also arguably the most commercial-sounding song Montaigne’s released so far and therefore stands the greatest chance of hooking the commercial airplay she so desperately deserves.
News about Montaigne’s forthcoming debut album is expected in the weeks ahead.
