Australian pop/dance artist, Starley, has released her new beautiful, and deeply personal single ‘Love is Love’.
After the international success of her debut single, ‘Call on Me’, Starley spent the last year in the studio working on her forthcoming untitled album slated for a summer 2018 release. ‘Love is Love’ is the follow up to her global smash hit ‘Call on Me’ which went 4 x Platinum in Australia, 1xPlatinum in the US (and so on) with more than 1 billion streams globally. There are few artists in the world who can claim to have accomplished as much, in such a short period of time, as Sydney phenomenon Starley.
Starley: “‘Love is Love’ is a very personal song for me. I had written a first draft for it that had a lot less detail. After sharing it with a few friends, it seemed it wasn’t hitting home all the way, and I realized it was because I was leaving out the parts of the story I felt uncomfortable sharing. I decided to re-write it and dig deeper. That felt scary and liberating at the same time. From that process ‘Love is Love’ was born. I’m nervous and excited to share it with the world!”
Starley’s captivating music is written with a combination of integrity and deeply personal lyrics that clearly resonates with her fans, adding to her chart success so far. “The cover for ‘Love is Love’ is not to be about me. Although, this song is my personal story, it’s a song for everyone, so I felt like a heart was the perfect way to go. The plot twist is that the colors I chose are the very colors of the bisexual flag. I feel like there should be a flag that represents love in all forms - interracial, interfaith, gay, straight, bisexual, trans, and so on. Until that exists, I’ve chosen to use the colors of the bisexual flag because they relate to my personal journey.” comments Starley on the inspiration behind her single artwork.
