Forever, the project of poet and pop-star June Moon, announced Close to the Flame be out February 14th on Cascine and shared the first single, “Make It Happen.” The track comes with a video that Forever self-directed and self-edited.
The new EP is Forever’s second and much of the inspiration for the sonic themes and lyrics came from heartbreak that she expressed by making the EP.
“I was in a relationship that was killing me, and I had to plan an escape to save my life,” she said. “The record is haunted by a ghost. I channeled her one night when I was writing because I was so scared to talk about what happened to me; I didn’t know how to tell my story. She came to me and told me to use her story as a channel for my own pain. This release is dedicated to her.”
