*The Following Press Release Was Issued By TEROUZ*
|My new single, “Burn,” is out now on all streaming platforms. Originally politically charged, “Burn” was born from a place of anger and despair in 2015 when I heard about the Charlie Hebdo incident. The lyric, some things are foul, but no one deserves to burn, popped into my head. |
Heavily influenced by my girlfriend at the time, she blasted me for it, demanding I write about love instead, explaining that people want passion instead. And so I began to envision a couple holding each other in an incinerating flame, changing that initial lyric to some tame the fire, but some fires deserve to burn.
|The cover art is based off a series of illustrations I painted of the burning lovers. |
A haunting call for intimacy, “Burn” exposes my own vulnerability. Empathy dangles from a string for a shot at love, passion builds, and then culminates in cataclysmic proportion. WILDFIRE.
