New York-based singer-songwriter Mae Krell returns today with the release of their new single, “phantom limb.” Alongside the new single, Mae is also announcing a North American tour supporting Ethan Jewell.
“phantom limb” is an achingly beautiful listen. Atop melancholy piano and scintillating production, Mae poetically unfurls a heartbreaking tale of drug addiction and recovery: “you’re still here like a phantom limb / an itch I can’t scratch / because I’ll tear up my skin / I know one is too much / but I’m always tempted / by the simple idea / that this time might be different”
“People often expect me to be ‘healed’ now that I’m sober, not realizing that my disease will continue to trail behind me for the rest of my life,” Mae says. “‘phantom limb’ speaks to my recovery, and what it’s like to choose to carry something difficult with you instead of letting it go untreated.”
