'The Light'

Rosie Alena found herself in a dark place.

As personal doubts set in, she began to look at music in a fresh light, searching for something different.

The South London songwriter stumbled across The Art Of Happiness, a seminal tome by the Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler.

Page after page seemed to resonate with her, and illuminated her work in a completely new way.

New single 'The Light' documents this process, tracing Rosie Alena's movement from a situation of self-doubt to broader awareness.

There's a beatific glow to the song, one that blasts away the "personal darkness" that had beset her.

Rosie explains: "For me, the song acts as an affirmation: envisioning a more hopeful, happier and grounded self; seeing the light outside our windows both literally and metaphorically..."

A gorgeous listen,'The Light' moves from blunt spoken word to jazz elements, pushed ahead by Rosie Alena's enormously expressive vocal.
