Los Angeles based singer-songwriter and multi instrumentalist Taylor Jules just released her new single, "Helicopter", and to celebrate we asked her to tell us about the song. Here is the story:

I am excited and proud to release "Helicopter," which will be my first single in a set of eight releases. "Helicopter" was inspired by the ebb and flow of fleeting romances and the conflicting emotions of living in the moment and experiencing the thrill and joy of being with this person you are fiercely attracted to, against the knowledge that the end of the relationship is imminent. While you are in the relationship, you know its fate is sealed and the person is going to "fly away one day." You can anticipate the heartache, but with this relationship, you feel almost compelled to enjoy it while it lasts. We have all had those situations. I wanted to explore the pull of those relationships where you stay with the person or keep letting them back in your life when they are not good for you or maybe even toxic. Is it the chemistry? Am I too scared to end the relationship? Am I crazy? I don't care if I'm crazy because I just want to be with that person now. Sometimes you just can't help yourself. Many of my songs address relationships that didn't work out, but "Helicopter" approaches a failed relationship from a different perspective. (continue)
