Tina Boonstra will follow her recent 7Core Music debut single 'Prodigal' with her next single 'I Think I See You Now' on January 12th, with her EP 'My Concrete Heart (Will Beat Again)' coming out on February 2nd. The offical 'Prodigal' video is out January 1st and the lyric video (below) is already available.
"I'm so excited to finally start sharing tracks from my new EP with you", writes Tina on her blog. "It's been an amazing process to take these lyrics and melodies written in my front room and shape them into the music I can share with you now. It’s been fun and challenging, but it’s been a tough process too. It’s felt like it’s taken ages, and there have been many days where I’d given up on the idea that this would ever happen. But it did! And now I get to tell you about the first song on the EP, Prodigal!
This song actually started off as a kind of accidental detour on the way to writing another song called Concrete Heart. Concrete Heart, is about believing that love, true, real love can soften even the hardest of hearts and warm the coldest of hands. I’m releasing that one in February so you’ll have to wait a few months before you hear it (sorry). I started writing this really upbeat happy song about believing in that kind of love and then realised that I wasn’t really there yet myself. I wasn’t ready to sing about real love, warming hard hearts, because my heart was so hard. I needed space and time to get there and that’s where the first ideas for Prodigal came from."
