Sivu - Overtime Lover

Long time favourite of the blog, Sivu has recently shared his painstakingly emotive new single Overtime Lover. Taken from the forthcoming new album Wild Horse Running out 9th June via Square Leg Records, the track's soft palette and atmospheric instrumentation paints the picture of how much of oneself is given up in a relationship. Speaking more about the track he goes on to say "Overtime Lover is the oldest song from the new record and actually took shape just before I went on tour. I then road tested it extensively whilst on a beautiful tour with Fenne Lily, Paul Thomas Saunders and Siv Jakobsen. Paul was incredibly complimentary of the track and we always flirted with the idea of collaborating on something as I have always loved his production. Fast forward 3 years, I left the track with Paul and he created a magical landscape for the song to sit in which I adored from the moment I heard it.   The song is based around this idea of how much of ourselves we have to give to someone else when you are in relationship - and sometimes you crave just to keep a little bit of yourself just for you. It’s lyrically quite blunt but this was an important process for my head and was imperative I got it out. I had no aspirations lyrically to dress it up, and probably from the whole album this song cuts the deepest."
