Singer, songwriter Vérité unveils Gone today, her first single in two years, NYLON. Co-written and produced by singer-songwriter Madi Diaz and Konrad Snyder, the song reintroduces the musician, capturing the devastating effects of something ending. Carried by haunting crescendos and is powerhouse vocals, the track sees the singer pleading for time to stand still for a little while longer before her world turns upside down.
Vérité said about the song, Gone is about the moment before an inevitable shift. It’s the feeling of sitting still, taking in your surroundings, and burying yourself in a final scene. It’s about accepting an action as simple as getting dressed can delineate an end. It’s about leaving something/someone you’ve known behind and how the massive swell of frenetic potential energy that is all encompassing in that moment becomes a tiny blip in retrospect. It’s about being done and moving on. The sentiment is simple, the reality—overwhelming.
Gone speaks to a larger theme Vérité will be focusing on with her sophomore album: capturing the nuance of being in a relationship that isn’t romanticized or idealized. The single is the first taste of a forthcoming album Vérité has coming down the pipeline.
