UPON WINGS have been heard everywhere – from Slipknot’s Knotfest“New Flesh” playlist to SiriusXM Octane‘s Big ‘Uns Countdown.
Now, Upon Wings and vocalist Anné Autumn Erickson have released an inspiring new single, called “Scars”, featuring beats from Slaves on Dope guitarist Kevin Jardine. In addition to releasing the single, the official music video for “Scars” is out today.
“Scars” is new territory for Anné and Upon Wings, as it features a strong, catchy hip-hop beat in the tradition of greats such as Eminem and Dr. Dre, crafted by Jardine, and inspiring lyrics and melodies from Anné.
Thematically, this song is about being proud of your scars and what you’ve been through,” Anné Autumn Erickson says. “It’s about letting go of negative influences in your life, whether that means people or anything else that is bringing you down. Be proud of your scars.””Musically, this song features a hot hip-hop beat,” she adds. “I felt super inspired to try something new!”
Jardine produced and mixed the beats for “Scars” at his Uplift Studios in Canada. The final song was mixed and mastered by R&B artist and recording engineer WinksDaGod in Michigan.
“Scars” is available now on streaming and download platforms right now. Find it at UponWings.com/Scars.
