Kristine says she originally wrote the song about death and the loss felt by those left behind, but it morphed into the single it is today after she experienced the painful split with her husband.
“I realize now how similar divorce is to a death,” she explains. “The grieving is intense. It’s mourning the loss of the relationship, the breakup of the family, the betrayal, the time invested; so many things. I was with my husband for a long time and we worked through so many challenges, I initially assumed we’d find our way through his infidelity, but what starts as just a lie sometimes grows into a tornado of betrayal and sometimes it’s best to just let go and let God guide you to your next chapter in life.”
She says her friends have been rocks for her during this hard time and acknowledges that the marriage produced two of her greatest blessings in the world: her beautiful son and daughter.
“Life is about love and loss with fabulous triumphs and heart wrenching experiences,” Kristine W attests. “No one is getting through this journey unscathed. We need to be there for each other with a sympathetic ear always remembering what may appear as ‘Just a Lie’ is likely more significant and complicated for the person going through it.”
“Just a Lie” is the first single from Kristine's soon to be released album, Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies, being distributed globally through The Orchard. It was produced in Amsterdam by Bob Sandee/Subgroover aka Crossnaders who give the emotional track a very cool, progressive, funky electro house vibe.
“I love the unique sound of the track,” Kristine says. “The Bass line, in particular, is infectious.”
Kristine W’s “Just a Lie” is available now on all digital retailers via Kristine’s own imprint, Fly Again Music Productions. The Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies album will be available February 2020; available for pre-order now. Visit http://kristinew.com.
