“Twilight” is a captivating soul tune that’s light on its feet thanks to a bouncy bass, crisp drums, and twinkling keys, not to mention Adeline’s bright and dextrous vocals. But in the lyrics, the French Caribbean singer paints a somber but honest portrait of a fading love, singing, “A distant memory/In this lonely heart of mine/Is trynna pull me back in time/As I watch you fade away.”
Adeline wrote and produced “Twilight” with collaborators Morgan Wiley and Jonathan Singletary. The song arrives with a simple video, self-directed by Adeline, that finds the musician trying to add a bit more levity to her heartbreak as she sings while luxuriating in bed with a glass of wine.
In a statement, Adeline explained: ” ‘Twilight’ is about a relationship that’s ending. It’s that particularly painful moment when you realize that it’s over. You have nothing left to give and there’s nothing left to say. The twilight is the period from dawn to sunrise or sunset to dusk. It’s the moment of realization that there is a transition coming. It’s saying goodbye to something while saying hello to the next.”
“Twilight” will appear on the Intérimes EP alongside two previously released songs, Adeline’s recent single, “Middle,” and its B side, a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Planet Caravan.” Adeline released her self-titled debut album in 2018.
