"While He Is Still Asleep"
thea wang returns with the tender acoustic ballad, ‘While He Is Still Asleep’, in preparation for her debut album later this summer. After the success of her first single, ‘Tell Me About it’, the Norwegian singer-songwriter is back with a heartbreaking track about a couple whose love is slowly fading away.
“While He Is Still Asleep is a short glimpse into your neighbours apartment. It’s a melancholic song about heartbreak, love, and the timeless early signs of erosion in/of a relationship. I had just bought a guitar, tried to learn how to play, and out of that this song appeared. I saw this story and couple clearly in my mind, and for some years I thought I had made it all up. Years later, I realise there may be some hidden truths from my own life at that time in it as well.”
With a minimalistic acoustic guitar arrangement for thea's vocals to float gently on top of, the lyrics capture an intense story of a struggling relationship through the singer's ethereal tones. The most intimate track from thea so far, the soft instrumentals and heart-wrenching themes are a showcase of what's to come.
"While He Is Still Asleep" is out March 18th.
