California-based R&B artist Claire Reneé released this new track today, July 28th
Rising R&B artist Claire Reneé is released her new single “Sadder Days” today, July 28th. This sultry, soulful track pulls in elements from the current R&B and pop landscapes, moving away from the jazzy route Claire usually takes in her music. The lyrics behind this track relate to the confusing emotions associated with dating and complex relationships, romantic or platonic. Claire reflects on the writing process for “Sadder Days,” remembering a point in time when she trusted people to a fault – especially when it came to them having power over her emotions.
“I wrote this this song about not understanding how someone could give up so abruptly and easily on a relationship. That feeling of the other person letting go hits so deeply, leaving you feeling, angry, and hurt. I hope listeners resonate with the sentiment of getting through the anger, giving up the need to understand what exactly changed in the relationship and healing enough to wish that person well without closure.”– Claire Reneé, R&B/Soul Artist
“Sadder Days” will be part of Claire Reneé’s upcoming EP, Journal Entries 1-4, which will touch upon some of the same themes. Claire hopes the EP will be relatable for people who journal or track how they are feeling or thinking. Each track on the diary-like EP will act as a journal entry from a significant point in time. The reminiscent nature of this EP is similar to looking back at the past and saying, “What was I thinking,” or “Wow, I’ve really grown.”

Claire Reneé’s recently released nine-track album Wings is inspired by relationships and how we cope with both the beautiful and challenging sides of it, touching on certain experiences that help us navigate these situations. Claire confides, “The human experience encompasses lots of different emotions. There may be some anger, sadness, clarity, visits from spirit guides, and even epiphanies. We lead out by honoring that we want to change or see a change in our lives. That includes doing work on ourselves while reminding ourselves we will always push through and even find our Wings. Getting to the other side brings light and even empathy to the very same ones who hurt you, couldn’t show up for you, or wronged you in the past.” You can stream Claire’s most recent single “Sadder Days”on all platforms July 28. Stay tuned for the release of Claire’s EP, Journal Entries 1-4, launching on September 29.
