COMING SOON: FEBRUARY 7 2021
Camilla Blue has grown up as a foster child and is ambassador of foster care (Holland: Oosterpoort & Levvel). In this intense song she sings about the protection that every foster child is craving for and the uncertainty that it entails. The umbrella is a metaphor for a safe home. During corona many children who already had a hard time may now experience more difficulties. With this song Camilla tries to give support, to give a voice to the children… By telling her own story in an intriguing song and videoclip. An organization in the Netherlands called ”Kinderpostzegelactie” ensures, through a campaign, that this year attention is paid to the well-being of children with a difficult background. The theme of this year is ‘Give a safe home’. For this campaign the Dutch magazine Libelle will publish an interview with Camilla Blue about her experience of growing up in a foster home.
TALK ABOUT IT
Camilla Blue is completely done with Corona and launches Summer Song!
“In my head there is always chaos. I have to keep myself busy to not fall back into old habits. I used the ‘intelligent lockdown’ time by recording my second album ‘Yellow’. In the period until the release I will first bring out almost all songs on single with videoclip. I am done with Corona and have chosen for the uplifting ‘Talk about it’ as a true summer song… but with a little bitter undertone.
Camilla Blue has announced that she will be releasing her new single ‘Loose Sand’ (April 17, 2020) from the upcoming album ‘Yellow’. “Loose Sand is about anxiety of abandonment. It refers to the biblical story ‘Parable of the Grains of Sand’. The more cramped you hold sand in your hand, the faster it will slip out. I wrote the song on the beach in Bordeaux during a band tour after one of my heaviest panic attacks. This has changed my view of the world and myself.”
The second single from the upcoming album ‘Yellow’ ‘Iced Up’ has been released February 7, 2020
