Ahead of official release on Friday, November 23, 2018, we've got the exclusive world premiere of her incredible music video for RuthAnne's fantastic new single It Is What It Is! Check it out below for the first time, and find out more about the song and the inspiration surrounding it after the visuals...
Stripped back and delivered with a single vocal and one piano, RuthAnne builds a soulful and emotive ballad that she says "is a bittersweet acceptance about a relatable relationship issue."
"The truth is, that when someone wants to be in a relationship with you, they WILL be happily with you regardless of timing or circumstance," she continues. "It Is What It Is is about me finally taking the power back and saying to a certain person that I deserve more. I stuck by my words and never went there again."
It's a situation plenty of us will be familiar with, and one that we could all do with a few more power anthems to help us get through!
Co-written with Fraser T Smith, who has worked with the likes of Adele, Sam Smith and Stormzy, RuthAnne filmed the video for the track at the London Palladium, working with director Elle Lotherington.
Now gearing up for the release of her debut album in 2019, RuthAnne will close out 2019 with a tour alongside Hozier in December, and the knowledge that she is this year's Irish Tatler Awards Woman of the Year. We couldn't think of a better rising star to grant the accolade!
