Aussie songstress Vera Blue has revealed her emotional new track, The Curse. The release arrives alongside an official visual, directed by Tim Madden.

The electro-pop ballad navigates the emotions of falling in love with a friend, and the impact that could leave on the friendship, inspired by the experiences of those close to her. Intimate and vulnerable lyricism flow atop delicate piano chords, building towards electronic production and a live string arrangement.

Speaking of the track, the singer shares: “When I see my friends hurting or going through something, it hurts just as much as it would if it were myself. I am a big empath so raw emotions immediately come to the surface. When writing ‘The Curse’, I’ve found myself inspired by the lives of those I’m close to, yet all these things that I’m writing about, I relate to 100% and have happened to me. It’s almost like it’s happening all over again, but my perspective is on the outside.”

Vera Blue is set to support previous collaborator Flume on his Palaces World Tour later this year, taking to the stage in Adelaide on November 30 and Hobart on December 2. Tickets are on sale now!
