We have been travelling through space this year with Annabel Gutherz. Back in March, the Montreal-based singer and songwriter released the pop rock track “Retrograde,” where she questions where she is in her life. After releasing a remix of the track with Epic in July, Annabel returned with a cover of Bowie’s “Life on Mars” in September. It is crazy how much we can connect our life on Earth with space and the stars, and on Annabel’s new single “Interstellar,” she compares the feeling of heartbreak to that of floating through the universe.
On “Interstellar,” Annabel pairs her dynamic vocals with theatrical instrumentation to create an out-of-this-world experience. Over the cosmic production, complete with dramatic drums and wailing guitar, Annabel sings about an ex and the unresolved feelings she has over the relationship. She reveals, “You made me a star in your constellation / Left me with goodbye, no explanation / Guess I was wrong to think we would be forever / Now I’m lost somewhere, interstellar.” You can check it out below.
About the track, Annabel shares,
“In a relationship, many times you can feel like a star in your partner’s universe – special, seen, and cherished. In the case that the relationship ends, you fall from their constellation, alone again and lost amongst a sky of wandering stars. ‘Interstellar’ is a song about just that and struggling with the tug-of-war dynamic between emotional dualities in the reverberations of a breakup. I wanted to honor the full scope of emotions and thus leaned into a very theatrical production. If this song resonates with you, I hope you know that you’ll find your way to the right orbit, where you won’t just be someone’s star but their whole world!”
You can listen to “Interstellar” on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
