This Still Life is the third single from the Irish songwriter’s album Protector.
The single follows two earlier announced releases Emptiness Follows and Way To Say Goodbye. Unlike the previous songs tinged with melancholia, This Still Life sounds more upbeat, hinting at the sense of harmony between the protagonist and her surroundings.
“The song is about the juxtaposition of feeling small in an endless universe while reflecting on the significance of my own birth and existence”, says Frances. “It’s about learning to move slowly through the world, listening to nature, and trusting that I can find my answers within.”
