HALIENE, the voice of some of the biggest tracks in dance music — from ‘Saving Light’ to ‘Rush Over Me’ to ‘Ave Maria’ — returns to center stage with her new original production, “Glass Heart”.
HALIENE opens up her soul on the song, revealing a vulnerability that many people face in their closest relationships. The inimitable voice is the main instrument here, deftly and beautifully delivering the song’s message while coated in a gentle electronic music cocoon.
“Glass Heart was inspired by a handwritten note I received from my late mother when I was 12 years old. Sometimes I feel that you should have been born with a tag on your toe that said: handle with care. But at the most difficult times of your life, I’ve seen an unmatched strength shine through when you need it most.”
This song is about me, who I am, how I was made — accepting myself in my fragile state —
while handling the greatest losses in my life with a strength tougher than diamonds.
You can break me open, but that’s when my strength truly shines. I’m easy to see through at times, but when I fall apart, that’s when my true purpose comes to life.
I found it very interesting that glass and diamond look so similar yet hold such different capabilities. There’s a fascinating dichotomy between the two substances: one, the most breakable of all, and the other are the strongest on Earth. I celebrate both strength and fragility at once in this song, because sometimes the most formidable strength is born out of the fragility of a broken heart.”
