Platinum award-winning songstress Donna Lewis has returned alongside producer, arranger, mixer and engineer David Baron on his latest offering ‘Bad Bad Love’ (feat. Donna Lewis)’, released on 12 July via Here and Now Recordings.
Speaking of the track, Baron explains: “‘Bad Bad Love’ combines the angelic voice of Donna Lewis with a small string orchestra and analogue modular synthesizers. It is the mournful yearning of a mother who has been separated from her child. Achingly beautiful, heartbreaking, and appropriate for our times. The musical form is reminiscent of a canon, a repeating chord sequence of low strings that slowly blossom until taking us right back to the original question.”
The message of the single comes through clearly with the lyric video, with outlines of children appearing against barbed wire. The influences shine through as the video continues with what is clearly border guards with guns facing down small children. The race of both parties is left ambiguous, allowing for both the video and lyrics to be applicable around the world.
