Brooklyn-based folk singer/songwriter Beth Henderson has released her debut single, “Wild One”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Written and performed by Beth Henderson with production and instrumentation by Julian Giamo, “Wild One” is an acoustic confession of love and surrender during the age of coronavirus, and a pensive exploration of what embracing fear can lead to.
“I wrote ‘Wild One’ sitting on a porch in upstate New York on my 30th birthday, waiting on my COVID lover to return with wood for our fire. We had met during the early stages of quarantine when the stillness of the city gave us all the time in the world to discover each other,” Henderson recalls. “But by mid-June, the whispers of our former lives were starting and our differences were beginning to show. Instead of calling it, then and there on that porch upstate, I asked what is love with no expectation? What does it mean to meet your lover where they stand, differences and all, to surrender control and to face the wild?”
Henderson is expected to release more singles in the coming months, with a debut EP slated for early 2021.
