Los Angeles-based Aussie artist Lili Kendall
reveals her enchanting new single, "lonely empress
," the final tease from her upcoming full-length project, love, herself
To execute her vision for "lonely empress
," Lili worked with Grammy-Award winning producer Syience (Beyonce, Jay-Z, John Legend, Mary J. Blige) and guitarist Javaughn Young White. The track opens with an atmospheric pop beat and Lili's signature sultry neo-soul vocals, exploding over the course of the song with climatic production and instrumentation that transports the listener into Lili's empowering, femme-forward dreamworld.
"This song is about choosing self-growth over a relationship," Lili writes. "I wrote this song when I realized the relationship I was in was not allowing me to thrive and become the woman and artist I envision myself to be." The title of the track was inspired by a tarot card reading Lili did for herself while looking for guidance — the card she picked was the empress.
