‘Gravity’, an anthemic pop single that demonstrates the incredible creative growth Yorke has made since releasing her acclaimed debut EP Liberosis in March. Working with an enviable international team—ex Death Cab for Cutie band member Chris Walla, Scandinavian producer Hank Solo (Lil Peep, ALMA) and Japanese Wallpaper — the song is an explosive earworm about a doomed romance, that captures the rising star's inimitable talents of turning romantic turmoil into propulsive pop perfection. A playful riff on intimacy, vulnerability and relinquishing control, ‘Gravity’ charts a love story between an alien and a human who are struggling to exist in each other’s orbit. “Think 'intergalactic Romeo and Juliet' minus the tragedy.” says Yorke. Yorke's philosophy is simple: Immersion and collaboration within the song-writing community is key to creative growth. This ethos and dedication have placed her in sessions with some of the world’s most esteemed producers and writers. ‘Gravity’ was written in such a session. The song was written in a single day, when Japanese Wallpaper and Yorke were experimenting in the studio. The result is a triumphant track that encapsulates the turbulent emotions that arise out of ill-fated love, and a thrilling re-introduction to the immersive, magnetic pop world of Yorke.
