Acclaimed songstress HALIENE is excited to finally share with the world her debut studio album, Heavenly. With A-list features and collaborations with dance music giants such as Armin Van Buuren, Excision, Seven Lions, and Gareth Emery to – most recently – ILLENIUM (on his GRAMMY-nominated, Billboard winning ‘Falling Embers’ album), she’s one of electronic music’s most entrusted singer-songwriters, now breaking ground as a solo artist herself.
With the collaborations listed above, HALIENE contributed her vocal to a instrumental focused production. In the case of ‘Heavenly’, she’s able to shine more so thanks to the flexibility that comes with her solo work. HALIENE’s vocal has never been better than on the debut album. The instrumental bedding for her vocal is terrific also, uniting a more subtle sound with the electronic nature we’ve come to expect from her collaborations.
In her own words, HALIENE describes the album as being “designed and written to lead the listener deeper inside themselves, and to their true nature. I believe we are not forever bound to this earth, but that some part of us longs for home, for freedom in the celestial realms, and when we reconcile to that truth, everything begins to make sense and align here. I wanted to explore subjects lyrically that cause us all to question and wrestle with our deepest nature in this album like vulnerability, finding strength in fragility, grief, and loss, forgiveness, transformation, unconditional love, intuition, and connections that seem to transcend time and planes of existence. I have a great love for poetry, and every word on this album has a purpose and meaning.”
