'A Better Me' is an autobiographical track with a delicate folk/pop flavor that tells the story of how the author manages to reclaim her own identity after coming out of an addictive relationship, in fact discovering 'a better me'.
The track, which is at the same time intimate and dynamic, is entirely composed by the singer-songwriter, who also accompanies herself on the guitar together with a team of internationally famous musicians: Neil Black on the strings, Al Savik on the bass and Phil Gould (Level 42) on the drums, also collaborating on the lyrics. This production was overseen by Fabio Balestrieri.
A videoclip by the young director and rising star Arash Irandoust (Sigur Ros) expresses the metaphor of rebirth through his haunting images and animation, as well as the latest in ultra-refined stop-motion techniques.
