An enticing prelude to May Erlewine’s new album, “Tiny Beautiful Things,” Erlewine offers the tender new single, “Lion Heart” on April 15, 2022.
Featuring Anthony DaCosta on rubber bridge guitar, Erlewine sings a mighty tribute to her daughter and offers a window into unconditional love. Her lyrics speak to the child within us all, creating a nurturing, inviting rhythm your heart can beat along to.
“You’ve got to use your Lion Heart, let it roar like a river inside.”
This track is just one of many on her new album, “Tiny Beautiful Things,” that will pull at your heartstrings. Named after the book by Cheryl Strayed, which contains a selection of intimate letters between total strangers, the album is a collection of songs focused on the power of connection and the emotional exchanges surrounding love.
Although Strayed and Erlewine use different mediums to voice these exchanges, they both hold one common truth: when we share our lives with others, they become richer, stronger, and more full of purpose. This feels especially valuable given the album was made during one of the most isolating and disconnecting times for many—a global pandemic.
In Erlewine’s own words, “This album is an invitation to connect with the many ways love appears in our lives. If we look around us, it's always there. I feel thankful to get to share these love stories through music and I hope they find a useful place in your heart."
Co-produced with Joe Hettinga, these songs feature incredible musical talent including a strong presence from Theo Katzman (vulfpeck) on background vocals and electric guitar, mixed by Caleb Parker (Scary Pockets), and mastered by Devin Kerr (Goodhertz).
Bookmark the date, April 15, and listen as May Erlewine not only wears her heart on her sleeve but roars loud enough for us all to hear.
“I want to be big enough to leave a whole lot of love behind.”
