During the pandemic, Carly sadly lost a close friend of her’s as he took his own life. ‘Now You Fly’ is a tear-jerking ballad showing off Carly’s ability as a singer but also celebrates the life and love of a dear friend.
With the days being dark and cold, the beginning of the year can always be a difficult time for our mental health, making it the perfect time for Carly to help bring awareness and get the conversation rolling. She has also set up a Just giving page for any proceeds and support to go to the children's mental health charity PAPYRUS. You can view that here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/CarlyBurns-NowYouFly
Diving a little into what went on behind the track, Carly divulges, “I have been developing this song for a year and a half, and the whole process has been like therapy to me. Through some insanely intense lows, my music has allowed me to release my grief and find strength. The recording studio day was extremely emotional, and I hope my listeners can hear my heart being poured out because that is exactly what I did.”
