"Gorgeous string arrangements... a lush, groovy track"
 - Brooklyn Vegan
Today, Sara Jackson-Holman premiered "Run," the first single off her upcoming album,  via Brooklyn Vegan. 'Didn't Go To The Party' comes out September 16th on Expunged Records.

A classically-trained pianist, as well as a pop singer-songwriter, Sara Jackson-Holman weaves together her varied musical loves (including Kate Bush, Carole King, Serge Gainsbourg and Erik Satie) into a rich and playful fabric.

"I was really inspired by Serge Gainsborg-esque strings for this song," she told Brooklyn Vegan ..."I wanted 'Run' to feel like it could be in a soundtrack to a warm-hued 70s movie, or just a great song to drive to."

In part, 'Didn’t Go To The Party' explores the arc of romantic relationships. One such relationship of inspiration was with her longtime collaborator in the studio. They worked on the album even after their relationship had ended, and, for certain, the twilight of that romance was entangled with the creative process.

There is a subtle yet important coda to this narrative of solitude and singleness, found on “Run.” At first blush, it may sound lyrically like a traditional pop song. In actuality, it’s a love song for Sara’s female friends, the ones who supported her and inspired her through rocky emotional terrain. When she sings: "if you want a partner in crime, I will be your girl," or more simply, "this love is different," it’s with a distinctly feminine energy in mind.

String arrangements from Jherek Bischoff (Xiu Xiu, Amanda Palmer) bolster the elegant and cinematic quality of Sara’s songwriting.

Pre-orders start this Friday, 7/22 on iTunes. Every pre-order includes a free instant download of the song "Run".
