"It's a song I've written for my teenage self..."

Scottish songwriter Siobhan Wilson has shared her wonderful new song 'April'.

The song is drawn from incoming album 'The Departure', and it carries a message of empowerment.

"It's a song I've written for my teenage self,” she comments, a call to “smash up the ideal way of existing, and promote the idea to create your own existence”.

Gentle on the surface but lyrically savage, 'April' twists and turns, with Siobhan singing: "Be a mother if you want, find another if you want..."

“It’s my way of trying to send a direct message out to do whatever the hell you want with you body, your time, and make your own decisions about your life,” she continues.

“’Be a mother if you want, find another if you want’, it’s really a reassurance to women who have had these questions, will confront the question of parenthood or are having these same thoughts as part of their life. 'April' looks to give a delicate and friendly voice to millions of people who think – no, a woman is in control of her own body.”

Tune in now.

'The Departure' will be released on May 10th.
