Song of the Day: Lauren Ray – Man


Lauren Ray releases new single ‘Man’ before album drops
Exciting times for Lauren Ray! The British singer-songwriter will release her full length debut album very soon. We Will Need Courage is out on the 1st of July and she has given her followers something to enjoy in the last two weeks of waiting. She just released the brand new single ‘Man’, premiered over at GigSlutz, which follows after the beautiful and atmospheric ‘Drive’, which was released earlier this year.

‘Man’ is a piano based soulful pop song with a moody vibe. Ray’s warm vocals are contrasted by the clear message of the track. There is man in the life of Lauren and her mother and he better leave them alone. “You really should be gone man, be gone from our lives at least. Let my mother’s mind be eased”, she states in the beginning and at the end of the song. The hook of the chorus consists of the sentences: “What do you expect, man? You are not welcome here, man!” A powerful message packed into an atmospheric mid tempo tune carried out by a soulful voice.
