With the first half of her debut project Child – with stand outs Sober and Could’ve Been – officially out to great reviews, Rukhsana Merrise shares with us a first taster of what we can expect from the latter half in her intriguing new song “Today“.
“Today” serves as the titular track to the new project and it’s indeed a wonderful way to introduce us to what she has in store. It’s beautifully somber, with subtle guitars and strings serving as the backdrop for Merrise’s exquisite folk-like vocals. Rukhsana’s intriguing word play wrapping itself around a wonderfully bittersweet melody.
With her first release of 2019, it is undoubtedly a strong one. “Today” is a delightfully layered with both sould and contexts. It’s a song that urges us all to seize the precious moments that we enjoy in the present, and poignantly put. She explains: “‘Today’ was written about appreciating the moment that is currently here, as we can’t guarantee what tomorrow brings…”
Today, the second half of Rukhsana Merrise’s debut project, is set to land on May 10 through Communion Group.
