Le Ren - "If I Had Wings"

Le Ren is the name Lauren Spear performs under. The Montreal based musician is set to release her debut EP later this month. Her new single, "If I Had Wings," is a modern day version of classic folk artists like Marianne Faithful and Joni Mitchell. The song has an undeniable sense of loss and melancholy, for good reason. Two years ago, Spear's ex-boyfriend was killed in a car accident. "If I Had Wings" is about that loss and the sense of feeling responsible for keeping their shared memories alive. The song is perfectly beautiful, and we can't recommend this enough.

You can watch the video for "If I Had Wings" below. Morning & Melancholia, the debut EP from Le Ren, will be out July 31 on Secretly Canadian. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Le Ren, check out the artist's Facebook and Instagram.
