Teaming up with music legend Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park, Fort Minor) for addictive pop number ‘Teary Eyed’, Emma McGann has the world in the palm of her hand. Receiving support from Rolling Stone, Forbes Women, IQ Magazine and Audiofemme to name a few, Emma is a British songwriter best described as a force to be reckoned with. Combining infectious pop melodies with beautifully crafted songwriting, this songwriter refuses to be left in the shadows.
Speaking about the hypnotising new pop anthem, Emma shares, “Teary Eyed is about being blinded by our problems and anxieties and not reaching out when you know deep down you should. When you’re overwhelmed that way it’s hard to work your way through the chaos to understand why you’re feeling the way you are. And this song is about exactly that – wading through it all and realising that you might need to talk it out to a friend instead of holding it inside. I’ve battled those waves and it’s a pretty dark, isolated way to live. So this song is a reminder to myself and others to be conscious of where your heads at and to remember that reaching out IS the way out.”
Written one evening with a guitar in hand to help overcome an intense panic attack, Emma submitted it to Mike Shinoda who produced the track live on his Twitch Livestream early in 2021 via his Shinoda Produce Me initiative. Released via X My Heart Records, “Teary Eyed” is a spacious, relatable pop single that uses jiving rhythms and poetic electric guitar melodies.
