Montaigne returns with new single 'For Your Love'
Australian singer-songwriter Montaigne has released her new single ‘For Your Love’, her first new music since 2016.
Written by Montaigne with MoZella (Madonna, Miley Cyrus) and Kyle Shearer (Dua Lipa, RAYE, Tove Lo), ‘For Your Love’ is a superb, glitchy slice of pop that switches between a smooth electro beat to an emotive acoustic vibe.
"I was reflecting on my first and so far only boyfriend," Montaigne explains. “It was a short relationship, but it was long enough. The first few lyrics from ‘For Your Love’ hark back to [2016 single] ‘Because I Love You’: 'I have been a snake, I have been a dog.'”
Of the unusual structure of the song, Montaigne says "It's supposed to be a little uncomfortable, the whole song is supposed to emphasize being dehumanized. Retroactively that is how it felt. Especially me as a fiercely independent person. To have gotten sucked into that, I know I'm better than that. The song is a valuable documentation of that moment in my life. It's a cautionary tale. It was a good learning experience.”
To celebrate the single release, Montaigne has also announced a run of national tour dates for April 2019, starting with Sydney’s Factory Theatre on April 11 and finishing up on the Gold Coast on April 28. Dates and ticket info below.
Montaigne is currently finishing of her second album due for release in 2019. It is the follow up to Glorious Heights which saw her win an ARIA Award for Breakthrough Artist in 2016.
