WITHOUT YOU
NEW SINGLE – RELEASED FRIDAY 23rd MARCH

Finnish slide guitarist and singer-songwriter Erja Lyytinen is pleased to announce the release of her brand new single Without You on Friday 23rd March – taken from her upcoming album in the fall. The new single was written and composed by Erja and recorded with her brand new band including Kasperi Kallio (keyboards), Tatu Back(bass) and Iiro Laitinen (drums).

 

 

Says Erja Lyytinen about writing the single,” I started writing Without You a few years back, but never found the right moment to finish it. So I bought the song into the rehearsal studio at the beginning of 2018 and the band and I started to work on it. It´s funny how much a song might change alongside one’s playing over the years! The arrangement was completely different at first with some R&B elements but it turned out to be something that I´m keen doing on stage nowadays – it’s loud, rocky and frank!”

“The song is about a person who is searching for the feeling she had with someone who´s no longer available. It is dealing with the phenomenon of how the human mind obsesses about something or someone that is out of a person’s reach.”

WITHOUT YOU – LYRICS

Lyrics & Music: Erja Lyytinen
Arrangement by: Erja Lyytinen, Tatu Back, Kasperi Kallio,
Jaakko Pöyhönen, Iiro Laitinen

Cobblestones under the high heels
Clicking up´n´ down the street
Neon lights an invite to the honey bees
Where lonely drones walk closer to the beat

Someone´s standing on the corner dealing
Just walk by him and push through the door
No-one really cares now how I´m feeling
Still I cheat myself to ease my empty core

Keep searching for someone new
Who would make me feel good
Keep searching for someone new
Who would feel just like you

Cannot be without you
Cannot be without you

So I walk the same street every evening
But still I won´t find what I´m looking for
For the chance of a glance just to see him
and crave the one I can´t have anymore

Keep searching for someone new
Who would feel just like you

Cannot be without you
Cannot be without you
Cannot be without you
Cannot be without you
