Anna Of The North returns with new single 'Leaning On Myself'

Having stunned us with her blissful debut album 'Lovers' back in 2017, Anna Of The North has now returned with a brand new single.

The new track 'Leaning On Myself' is her first piece of new material since her first full-length, and sets up the announcement of a show at London’s Village Underground on the 25th March.

Speaking about the new release, the frontwoman said, "I've been writing a lot of music the past year. ‘Leaning On Myself" is one of the songs that came out of it, maybe one of my favourite songs. I remember flying home from the States where we wrote it and I started crying. I kind of realized I’d written the soundtrack of my life one year ago. There was a point where I went through a lot of shit and I wasn’t feeling very well. I had one big break down where I called my mom and just knew I had to change my ways. I had to cut some people out of my life, people I loved but I knew weren’t really good for me. It was tough. But I’m good now. Every time I listen to this song it takes me back to that moment. It’s fucking sad but also powerful. I’m very grateful for where I am today. In the end you only have yourself, you know, and I guess that’s ok."
