It has been over a year since Emi Jeen was last covered on Eat This Music, at that time she released a single titled ‘West of the Blue‘, so what better time than ever to cover her again, with the release of her latest single, ‘Runaway‘, a song that Emi created to serve as a reminder that it is never too late for you to change things in your life, move on, and essentially take a different path.
Speaking on the creation of the single, Emi explains that at time she wasn’t comfortable in her current situation, having so many disappointments fighting the music business for the last 10 years. “I often feel so different when I’m in another country,” she explains, “[I] feel like there’s so many new opportunities that I feel like another person.”
On that trip, Emi began to see a little light out of the blurriness and started writing in the backyard of her Airbnb accommodation. Two years later, back in the studio, this deep pop anthem, which features Emi’s soothing vocals and tightly developed instrument work is the song that came to life.
