Autmn Rains Run2u New Release
Autmn Rains has one of those voices that soothes the soul and gets you in your feels real quick. We can definitely feel the emotion in her latest project release, “Run2u,” and might be obsessed with her freestyle on “Expectations.” She is putting her own spin on the R&B genre and we can’t get enough.
THE HONEY: WHAT IS THE STORY/MESSAGE WITH YOUR PROJECT? WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION?
AUTMN RAINS: “I really wanted to put a project together that took the listener on a journey from beginning to end, so I ask my listeners to hear the EP in order as it has a cohesive flow. I love late night drive type music, so, with this project I really wanted to capture that aesthetic. I am an emotional person and for a long time I was afraid to share this part of myself. So, I wanted to just be myself and share my stories in hope that I could impact somebody else in a meaningful way. I am inspired by artists like Aaliyah, Jhene Aiko and H.E.R. All of their music resonates a lot with me. The visuals were inspired by late 90s and early 2000’s films like “Pulp Fiction” and “Kill Bill.” I really wanted to capture the vintage look. This EP means a lot to me because it marks a point in time where I overcame a lot of my fears not only as an artist but as a person.”
THE HONEY: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LYRIC OF THE SONG? BREAK IT DOWN FOR US!
AUTMN RAINS: “I honestly love each record equally and that’s why I chose them when putting it together. Although, I would have to choose the intro, “Wanted This (Introlude).” Lyrics: ‘Im taking time to do it my way, my way / Cause you ain’t see the picture that I painted for you baby / Tell me how you really feeling lately / Don’t tell me that you’re done I’m trying to talk to you / After everything I’ve done for you / If I have to, I’m replacing you / So don’t you get too comfortable, comfortable.’ These lyrics perfectly describe my situation. I took my time putting this project together and have been working on my craft for a long time. I doubted myself and my abilities for so long so the intro was therapeutic for me being able to let all of that go. It also sums up a lot of the heartbreak I have experienced in my life and the intense emotions I felt, but didn’t know how to express at the time.”
THE HONEY: IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THIS PROJECT?
AUTMN RAINS: “I just want people to connect to the music, relax and heal through me sharing my experiences. It means the world to me when I receive messages from people telling me that I helped them get through the day or just zone out for a few minutes. The world is very intense right now and I want to be able to help people escape reality for a moment.”
