‘Disappear’ is taken from Grace’s forthcoming multimedia concept album PILLBX: whts ur fantasy?, which will culminate this summer in an epic cinematic film, due June 2nd. Each track from the album is being released like an episodic mini-series and you can watch the album trailer here.
Grace’s new single is an incredibly moving pop ballad, understated with atmospheric electronics that paint an ethereal picture. Beautifully paired with soul-stirring lyrics, Grace says of the track: “‘Disappear’ is a song that makes the whole world stop for the 3 minutes and 31 seconds you’re listening to it. So many people struggle with chronic depression, anxiety, and trauma, and unfortunately for many people, sometimes they struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel resulting in the unimaginable. ‘Disappear’ is the most heart-wrenching song I have ever written, but at the same time, it’s the song I am the most proud of. I hope that ‘Disappear’ is able to bring tremendous awareness to suicide prevention, causes, and how we as a society can create a safer world for everyone involved.”
