For Wyn & the White Light's new single, Wyn Doran looked back on a near death experience the day after Christmas in her 20's that left her hospitalized until her birthday in early January. During a songwriting retreat with Ben Folds, Folds issued a "six lines" challenge, where writers only get six total lyrical lines to form an entire song structure. The resulting song, "Can the World Change," is a sparse and intimate song that shows Doran's raw emotions and focuses on her vocals. Referring to a song as haunting is a bit of a cliche, but "Can the World Change" is one of the more haunting songs we've heard in a long, long time. As powerful and affecting as the songs is, it also feels quite fragile.
You can listen to "Can the World Change" below. Luck is due out this winter. For more on Wyn & the White Light, check out the artist's website.
