Leah Jane has today released her latest single titled ‘Scarlet Letter’ from her upcoming EP ‘Nottingham Drive’. Redeeming as a song to flush and fume the soul to, ‘Scarlet Letter’ hits the heart with relatable lyrics amidst a subtly emotional tapestry of music to soothe the feeling of the medicine delivered by the lyrics.

Look, we’ve all been there. That moment that becomes a precipice. The time our character gets an upgrade or a downslope. It depends on who we are and it makes us what we are. This is a song for the rest of us. The downtrodden on an upswing. Closure is also an awakening. A new beginning. This is the anthem for that next chapter, and it’s beautiful.

About ‘Scarlet Letter’

With “Scarlet Letter,” Leah Jane opens up about the harrowing journey through the dissolution of a relationship. The song poignantly addresses the shame, rejection, and liberation that come with moving on. Her lyrics, “My shame has washed away, no longer haunted by the lies you fed me, wish we could’ve just stayed friends, what a complex ending,” navigate the listener through the storm of emotions that accompany a breakup.

The song’s expressive vocals convey the depth of hurt, the resentment towards the one who caused the pain, and the bravery it takes to advocate for oneself and establish boundaries. Leah Jane, alongside producers Alex Biro (Selfish Things) and Mike Tompa (Silverstein), crafts a story that resonates with feelings of closure and optimism for what lies ahead. Leah Jane further elaborates on the song’s essence, describing “Scarlet Letter” as a reflection on the isolation and judgment faced after revealing her vulnerabilities.

The track discusses the consequences of being ostracized and labeled, shedding light on themes of slut-shaming and the hypocrisy of certain self-proclaimed feminists. “It’s a song about slut shaming, about the modern fake-feminist, nail-painting fuck-boy,” Leah Jane asserts, highlighting the song’s relevance to contemporary social issues.

Leah Jane, celebrated for her acting prowess with a Best Actress nomination at the “Short Stop Film Fest” and known for her role in House of Deadly Lies (Lifetime), seamlessly blends her theatrical expertise with her musical talent. This fusion creates a deeply immersive listening experience.

Her upcoming debut EP, Nottingham Drive, features the evocative track “Paper Crown,” which explores feeling overlooked and undervalued, offering a wide-ranging emotional narrative, and “Scarlet Letter,” an ode to modern heartbreak. Nottingham Drive is a milestone in her artistic journey, further highlighted by her achievement of the 2019 RBC Emerging Musician/Canadian Walk of Fame Scholarship for her song “Water,” underscoring her evolving identity as a multifaceted artist.
