Nashville, TN. -- Today, multi-talented Nashville-based Capitol CMG recording artist Riley Clemmons has announced her much anticipated sophomore album, Godsend, will officially be released on June 4th. The collection of songs represents a season of change and growth for the 21-year-old, tackling the multitude of feelings and emotions that come from entering a new stage in life. To coincide with this announcement, Riley has launched a custom line of Godsend-themed merchandise, including a collectible CD with exclusive album artwork. Godsend is now available for pre-order here, and merchandise can be found here.
"As I was writing this record, there was never a plan to create anything but honest music, born from hurting, growing, and healing," shares Riley. "I collected these songs much like I collected every experience I found myself in over the last few years. The music that ultimately created the record tells the stories of my highest and lowest thoughts and emotions with the common thread that maybe 'every broken place I've been was a Godsend.' My hope is that anyone who listens can find themselves in these melodies and be reminded that the pain, healing, and joy we experience is so much more common and unifying than we could ever imagine."
In addition to the announcement of Godsend, Riley has released another song from the album, "I'm Not Alone." The poignantly gripping track pairs her raw vocals with a resounding piano which serves as a reminder that all people go through periods of loneliness and are not isolated in that experience. Listen to "I'm Not Alone" here.
