Sarah Elizabeth Haines’ “Water” is Out Now

Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Sarah Elizabeth Haines, released her third single the gentle, ethereal “Water” from her forthcoming LP, Castaway, set for release on February 25, 2022. The song was co-written with Sarah and producer Kevin Salem (Rachel Yamagata) and prominently features the multi-instrumentalist’s viola playing in this beautiful and haunting ballad. The lyric video features shots of water moving backwards and forwards in natural settings including creeks, streams, lakes, ponds, and the ocean perfectly capturing the sentiment that, “no matter what I do, it leads me back to you.”

“’Water’ is about being deeply affected by an experience — being swept under by the tide, meeting the wrong person at the right time, being forced to spend a year in pseudo-confinement — and choosing to move forward despite the knowledge that a part of it will remain with you always, says Sarah. “Just because it’s there doesn’t mean you have to drown in it. And–everything is cyclical. The process may lead you back to the sea, but soon enough you’ll become rain again and you can go anywhere the wind takes you.”
