The up and coming singer/songwriter, Patrick Droney, shares his brand new single, “Glitter,” taken from his forthcoming EP, State of The Heart, due out October 9 via Warner Records.
The self-produced, piano-driven track “uses glitter as a metaphor for the hopeful optimism that can come with the universal feeling of grief” and is accompanied by an official video.
Droney explains, “Consider for a moment your life as an art project. Grief stands out as one of the messiest strokes of life, like glitter scattered across the floor after a collage. The beautiful and shiny memories of people stick to you, as does the absence of them…when you think someone’s memory is gone, you find a piece of them still shining somewhere in your life. A piece of glitter. I hope this song helps people understand that when grief is put under the right light, it comes with a shimmer of hope and a reminder of the memories that never fade.”
In 2018, Droney had a breakout moment, with the independent release of his debut EP, which earned him over 25 million Spotify streams, including over 10 million Spotify streams for the Grey’s Anatomy-featured track, “High Hope.” He also performed his other track, “Stand and Deliver,” on Late Night with Seth Meyers and landed in the Top 10 on Spotify’s US Viral Top 50 chart.
