Ruthanne Releases Her Brave and Encouraging New Single

May 28, 2021

Ever since the release of her 2019 debut album ‘Matters Of The Heart’, Ruthanne has been busy in the studio, writing, recording and producing exciting new music. In October 2020 she released ‘Remember This’, the first track from this new project with AntiFragile Music. Last month, the adoring, passionate single ‘F.L.Y.’ followed and today RuthAnne is delighted to be sharing her latest single ‘Safe Place’.

The track highlights the importance of finding support and space to talk and to heal when we are struggling. It’s about finding strength in vulnerability and learning what works for you. ‘Safe Place’ is RuthAnne’s nod of gratitude to her own safe place, which has helped her come through dark times. The song is also an extension of love and encouragement to listeners who may be going through similar experiences.

“I wrote ‘Safe Place’ when I was getting out of a very dark place. My physical and mental health were at an all-time low due to endometriosis, which is a chronic disease I live with. There were some days I couldn’t get out of bed due to my condition and other days where I had to really put on a front that I was ok, touring, seeing friends, but I wasn’t ok at all. I had been keeping so many thoughts and things I was feeling inside but the minute I started to open up and talking about what I was feeling with my loved ones, I finally felt I was not alone. I felt supported, loved and hearing the thoughts out loud and talking them through really helped me out of the darkness and back into the light. I wrote this to hopefully encourage people to do the same. To open up, to talk and to find their ‘Safe Place’ whoever, wherever and whatever that is.”

RuthAnne’s outstanding career started back when she was just 17-years-old, penning music for huge pop artists, including JoJo’s ‘Too Little Too Late,’ for which RuthAnne achieved the ASCAP Songwriters Best Pop Song award. From then she wrote a string of massive records including Britney Spears’ RIAA platinum-certified ‘Work Bitch,’ One Direction’s ‘Where Do Broken Hearts Go,’ Pentatonix’s ‘Misbehavin’ and Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha’s ‘In The Name Of Love.’ In 2017 she co-wrote 5 songs on Niall Horan’s debut solo album ‘Flicker,’ including US #1 hit ‘Slow Hands,’ for which she received a BMI award. As a songwriter her songs have been streamed over 4 billion times. She also co-wrote Horan’s latest single ‘Nice To Meet Ya’.

RuthAnne’s stunning solo single ‘The Vow’ took her own music to great heights. The track was played during ITV 2’s Love Island 2019 Final – it was Shazamed 15 thousand times within the hour and reached #1 in the main Irish iTunes chart. RuthAnne’s material has now amassed over thirty million streams so far.

Her most recent project has been back home with supergroup, Irish Women In Harmony. In early 2020, RuthAnne brought together almost 40 of Ireland’s greatest female artists to remotely record a cover of ‘Dreams by The Cranberries. All funds raised go to Safe Ireland, working to end domestic violence and coercive control in Ireland. RuthAnne produced the track and came out with a song that captured the heart of the nation and made Irish music history. In its first week, the single hit #1 in the Official Homegrown Chart, the first female act ever to do so. ‘Dreams’ was also #2 in the Irish airplay chart and #1 in the Breaking Tunes chart.

Later that year, RuthAnne began writing and producing the original festive single ‘Together At Christmas’ in support of ISPCC Childline. The song became an instant favourite in households across the country and raised much needed support for children in dangerous situations, heightened by the Covid-19 pandemic.
