Alyssa Bonagura has shared an acoustic version of her single ‘New Wings,’ released back in July.
“This version was important for me to record and release as it’s a reflective reminder that as difficult as it may feel when you’re going through a challenging time, there’s always an end to the pain and struggle,” Alyssa Bonagura continues, “along with millions around the world, I lost a lot and experienced a significant amount of change in 2020 and ‘New Wings’ became a song that reflects the process of emerging from it; healed, whole and ‘ready to soar.’”
The ‘New Wings’ Acoustic video was filmed and edited by Jenny Gill (One Move Media) in Alyssa’s home studio, where she originally wrote ‘New Wings.’ This was also one of Alyssa’s first remote co-writes in 2020; written over Zoom with producer and songwriter, Tawgs Salter.
“I wanted to release this video for everyone who has experienced a challenging eighteen months and who feels like they’re getting back to the core of who they are again. When you strip a song back to the bones of what it is, that’s when you can really hear the lyrics and feel the meaning. My vision with this was to get to the heart of the message. Our hard times are there to remind us that each day is a new opportunity to become the people we want to be, and that’s what this song represents for me. I would also like anyone who’s still struggling to know that there’s always hope and always someone who cares,” Alyssa concludes.
The release of ‘New Wings’ in July marked the first release following Bonagura’s collaboration in The Sisterhood Band, which took her across the world touring two successful Sony Music EP releases, with performances at the iconic Grand Ole Opry, main support for Rod Stewart on his UK & Ireland stadium tour, and a sold-out UK headline tour, along with numerous major festival appearances.
