Doe Paoro’s new track “Fading Into Black,” co-written by our own Dan Nigro, powerfully showcases Paoro’s expressive singing and imaginative songwriting. It also comes with a timely context that lends it some additional resonance.
Doe Paoro recorded the song on November 8th, the morning after the presidential election. She recalls, “When I got into the vocal booth, I could not sing the original lyrics to this song. I was so overpowered with anger and regret. So I wrote the new lyrics on the spot and we recorded it; it came effortlessly and the song felt fated to arrive on that day. For me it’s about personal regret over collective decisions, and the choices the collective makes that feel like they are made from a place of fear rather than hope.”
