New single ‘Goodbye’ is a song that perfectly captures the struggle to express the true weight of a permanent goodbye between two cherished people - what our heart is longing to say, but our words can never fully express. Heart-wrenchingly fraught with bittersweet desperation, it marries the deep gratitude for everything they have given them with the profound grief that comes in a parting of ways.
A follow up to the recent single, Loose Ends, it is a bold endeavour to form language where no words can suffice, and if you have ever sought to express such a goodbye, let this song take the reins and sing it for you.
Fitch says, “I have had several significant goodbyes in my life, but I never felt that I honoured them with enough recognition, as I was always looking ahead to the next stage in my life. I wanted to write a song that paid homage to those people that have had such profound influence and significance, and have given me so much. It’s so important to acknowledge this in a time of so many goodbyes, and so I wanted to write a song that others could relate to, and weave beautifully into their own personal stories.
“It feels significant too to be releasing it at this time, as we leave behind a period of unhurried stillness, not to rush back into busyness but to reflect and grieve what we have lost well, taking forward all we have learnt.”
