Irish songstress RuthAnne releases her brand new soulful, heart rendering ballad “It Is What It Is“, following singles “Liquid” and “The Vow” – both to come from her debut album set for 2019.
Stripped back and achingly beautiful, RuthAnne delivers a chilling yet potent performance with her voice, assisted solely with a piano. Wonderful penmanship courtesy of such a seasoned writer, alongside the legendary Fraser T Smith, her delicate, smoky vocal builds then retreats to a raw but beautiful place of acceptance.
Speaking about the song RuthAnne said: “The song is a bittersweet acceptance about a relatable relationship issue… you know, the ‘I’ll be the one that changes him’ thing. The truth is, that when someone wants to be in a relationship with you, they WILL be happily with you regardless of timing or circumstance…”
“‘It Is What It Is‘ is about me finally taking the power back and saying to a certain person that I deserve more. I stuck by my words and never went there again.”
Having supported Third Story & Alanis Morissette, she’s set to perform in front of at least 20,000 people when she closes out the year touring with Hozier in December.
