Michigan’s newest lo-fi soul artist Dani Darling (aka Soul Galaxy Girl) has shared her haunting new single “Stranger,” ahead of her live New York City debut at the Uptown Soul Loungeshowcase. Premiered exclusively on Singersroom on Wednesday, “Stranger” is now available on all digital platforms. The single is from the angelic singer/songwriter’s forthcoming debut EP Nocturne.
“Stranger’ was initially the start of a jazzy musical I planned to write with a friend. The idea was to create a modern version of a jazz standard like Cole Porter or Gershwin; something Nat King Cole would sing. It started with exploring the concept of growing apart from someone you were once very close to and ‘Stranger’ was the first (and only) song I wrote for that project; it kind of took on a life of its own. It was the result of a live recording in one take.” – Dani Darling
