LUNGS ARE BURNING – CANADA AND UK TOUR DATES
CHRISTINA MARTIN TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE “LUNGS ARE BURNING” JUNE 6
Summer Tour Dates In Canada In Partnership With
Centre For Addiction And Mental Health (CAMH)
Acclaimed Canadian singer/songwriter Christina Martin will release her latest single, “Lungs Are Burning,” on June 6 available for purchase directly from her website. A fervent anthem for those who are lost and longing, “Lungs Are Burning” is the first taste of Martin’s forthcoming album, the follow up to 2015’s It’ll Be Alright.
“Lungs Are Burning” was triggered by the rising Fentanyl drug crisis killing thousands of Canadians, with Christina’s words set to music co-written with guitarist/producer Dale Murray. As she sings lines such as, “Got to go out and get some, baby,” in her haunting, Stevie Nicks-esque tones, Martin captures the desperation of “chasing the dream” and the horror of living it. The message is also brought home through Murray’s stately production.
Martin says, “The song is an modest attempt to bring light to the heavy topic of addiction, and reflects my own personal sense of loss, longing and a deep void, and the ache I feel from losing my brother and friends to addiction and mental illness.”
To further that message, Martin with is promoting the work of The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) on her summer Canadian tour dates to increase engagement and awareness.
Her 9-date UK tour kicks off on June 24 and includes dates in London, Brighton, Birmingham and Manchester.
