Duffy uploads a moving new track, ‘River In the Sky’. The deeply personal and emotive piano-driven song will only be made available across Duffy’s social media channels, which Duffy captions with the words: “For the better days to come.”
Duffy, who recently shared her harrowing story explaining her disappearance from the public eye, first took the brave step of sharing new music by sending Jo Whiley an “only for radio” track, called ‘Something Beautiful’, in March. The beautifully raw and poignant ‘River In The Sky’ is another step for Duffy, as she becomes a little more confident to “sing again.

In a personal account, on her blog (http://duffywords.com/), Duffy wrote, “I never knew if I would get to the place of being able to do this, I am grateful to get here. Not everyone has the privilege of being able to talk, such as I am doing today,” as she explained in detail the account of a rape and kidnap ordeal that would steal “thousands of days from her life.”
She further explains, “Finally, the realisation that the very thing that hurt me, will become the very thing that heals me. I faced a deeply inhumane experience; only humanity can heal that.” ‘River in the sky’ discusses sorrow and the desire to be unburdened; she sings, “As I walk this life, doubt on my mind, I pray to fly, burden free.”
This is something simply for people to enjoy “for the better days to come”.
