TRACE - Blood and Bones

Following last year's release of her 4-song debut EP, Low, which to date has amassed over 40 million streams on Spotify, as well as her follow-up singles, "Oh My My" and "You Don't Know Me," the latter having hit No. 1 on Hype Machine and earning her comparisons to Lana Del Rey and James Blake, Los Angeles-based Vietnamese-American singer/songwriter TRACE returns with her first offering of 2018 called "Blood and Bones", produced by Jimmy Harry (Oh Land, Kylie Minogue) and mixed by Morning Estrada (Ty Dolla Sign, Aminé).

TRACE penned the song about the "misinterpreted allure" that often accompanies unrequited love (or lust), and wanting someone you feel you understand, when in reality that desire is just "an infatuation."

"There's something so romantic about seeing someone for the first time and feeling like you know them already – or at the least, know everything about them," TRACE explains.
"You start to fall for the person you've already made them out to be in your mind, getting caught up in your own ideas about them. Even better when they’re out of reach or unexpected. It's a romantic fantasy when someone lives up to your imagination about them. 'Blood and Bones' is my way of admitting that underneath the decorative and detailed surface of me, there’s a truth I'll keep from you."

Listen to "Blood and Bones" below.

"Blood and Bones" is available now on iTunes.
