Fia Moon Lets Her Troubles Float Away On New Single ‘Let This Go’

‘Let This Go’, the third of six singles Ireland’s newest alt-pop queen Fia Moon will release as part of her debut mixtape, is a reminder to herself and her listeners that time really is the best healer. Set for release on October 9th, ‘Let This Go’ builds on the stories told in previous singles ‘better days’ and ‘XX’ and continues Fia’s journey towards building back confidence, self-assuredness, empowerment and acceptance.

Describing the concept of the song, Fia says: “It’s about accepting things for what they are and learning to let go of things that don’t make you happy. When you’re so comfortable in a situation, it can be really hard to detach yourself and recognize that you need to walk away and let go of the things that are ultimately holding you down. 

It’s cliche, but it’s true that time is a healer and I guess that’s what I meant when I wrote the lines ‘know in time it’ll be ok’. I actually find the song quite self-soothing and I hope that comes across to other people who hear it.”

‘Let This Go’ was co-written with London producer Neave Applebaum, who recently worked on Joel Corry’s ‘Head & Heart’, which spent six consecutive weeks at No.1 on the UK singles chart. The song uses the original demo vocals recorded last year, as Fia wanted to hold on to the original emotion. However, it has undergone some change since its conception as a ballad, with Alex O’Keefe and Laurie Revell (Just Kiddin) brought in to give it a more energetic, electronic production, with the atmospheric beat enabling Fia’s vocal tone to soar.

It has been a hugely successful year for Fia so far, with prior singles ‘better days’ and ‘XX’ achieving copious radio play (14 million impacts), with the former reaching No.13 on the Official Irish Homegrown Chart as well as a recent Love Island USA TV sync. Meanwhile, both songs have been added to a number of Spotify editorial playlists such as ‘New Music Friday’, ‘A Breath Of Fresh Éire’, ‘Chilled Pop Hits’ & ‘New Pop Revolution’. Deezer also included Fia in one of their largest new music playlists ‘Brand New UK’, which boasts over six million followers.

Impressive streaming stats aside, 2020 has seen Fia collaborate on the successful Irish Women In Harmony charity cover of The Cranberries ‘Dreams’, which went straight to No.1 on the Official Irish Homegrown Chart and at No.15, was the highest new entry in the Official Irish Charts, raising over €220,00 for Safe Ireland. Fia also made her first TV appearance alongside artists Gavin James and Denise Chalia, when she performed as part of RTÉ’s fundraiser for workers in the live music industry ‘Songs From An Empty Room’

Fia has garnered plenty of media acclaim too, with the likes of CLASH, The Irish Times, The Business Post, EARMILK, Nialler9, GUAP, GoldenPlec, Record of the Day and The Official Charts highlighting her undoubted potential. Fresh off her first virtual performance at Ireland Music Week last night, it won’t be long before Fia Moon is at the forefront of a new crop of Irish music ready to take over the world.
