Heather Woods Broderick Previews Labyrinth With “Crashing Against the Sun”

American musician and composer, Heather Woods Broderick, releases the first single from her forthcoming album Labyrinth, which is set to be released April 7 via Western Vinyl. The track is called “Crashing Against the Sun” and comes with an accompanying music video directed by Jeremy Johnstone.

Broderick says that “Crashing Against the Sun” is about “coming to terms with the realities of today, and moving through the present with a presence of mind and recognition of all the possibilities the future holds. It’s about what we cling to as reassurance or validation in our world, and how these things are often fleeting.”

She also adds that the song “illustrates a curiosity as to how those same sentiments can also have dual existence and present positivity. The subtleties of existence are full of variability. Our experience can often feel redundant, but uniqueness lies in the details. Essentially, time flies, enjoy the ride.”

Co-produced by D. James Goodwin, Broderick’s fifth record, was inspired by the following idea: “Many of us yearn for stillness and peace, as an escape from the movement all around us. Yet movement is perpetual, happening all the time on some level. It’s as wild as the wind, yet eternally predictable in its inevitability. It is linear in part, but infinite in its circuitry. Our lives just punctuate it.”
In addition to “Crashing Against the Sun”, Labyrinth includes “Blood Runs Through Me.”
