The breath of fresh air that is Monique, has unveiled her brand new single ‘The Gift’ and it is surely a gift.
Pleasant to the ears of listeners, British soul singer-songwriter Monique's new record was inspired by the life changing moment when she became pregnant in July 2014 and an ode to her unborn son.
The release of ‘The Gift’ also comes with the announcement of her comeback EP of the same name, and her first record in two years.
Expected to deliver her son on April 28, Monique is not only going to be receiving her very own gift of new life, but also sharing a gift with fans and supporters of her music, as she is set to release her long awaited EP ‘The Gift’ on the same date.
‘The Gift’ is so much more than just a comeback single for Monique, and in her own words, “in this moment I was being gifted with a child. The course of my future had been changed in one night! I later got in touch with my very talented friend Lauren Ray to help me complete the writing of the song, which speaks about the miracle of the present and this new life I am preparing to enjoy”.
“People warned me about getting pregnant and the detrimental effect it could have on my career”, Monique continues about ‘The Gift’, “this made me anxious and reluctant at times to embrace motherhood, despite my desire for a family. Now, that anxiety no longer remains. Instead I am honoured to have this opportunity and am expectant of the joys being a parent will bring despite the challenges”. Listen below, as Monique bares it all, in her new single ‘The Gift’.
