Sister Ray shares new single ‘Good News’

Sister Ray, the project of Edmonton-born songwriter, Ella Coyes (they/she) is sharing their new single, ‘Good News’. The new track comes as the final advance single to be lifted from Sister Ray’s forthcoming debut album, Communion which is set for release on May 13 via Royal Mountain Records (Alvvays, Wild Pink, U.S. Girls).

‘Good News’ thematically marks the darkest song on Communion despite being the lightest in sound. Speaking about the track, Coyes explains: “This song is about my frustration watching me, members of my family and the people around me experiencing issues that have affected us intergenerationally – and continue to do so – and see many suffer in silence. It’s written like a series of vignettes about a few moments that have really stood out in my memory. At first, it didn’t click with me that this song sounded so light because it felt heavy to me, but I feel now that a big part of this song is the freedom that I feel in the actual act of airing out those things that I would have willfully ignored or hidden from.”
