Ziggy Alberts - Letting Go

January 25, 2021

by Luna Keller

Glaciers, coast lines, clean waters and blue sky… the smell of adventure is in the air and the only thing we have to do is let go of our fear and run into lifes open arms. That’s the message and feeling you get while listening to Ziggy Alberts newest song. The Australian singer songwriter just released "Letting Go", the second single of his upcoming project "Searching for Freedom" (to be released on the 19th of March). With its uplifting folky feel the song shines with great melodies and a hook that I really want to sing loudly while driving through another country with the sun shining and good company. It’s going directly onto my Summer Songs playlist, waiting for my next road trip - once those are allowed again. With beautiful guitars and an amazing vocal sound the track reminds me of some of my favorite Ben Howard songs mixed with some of my favorite tracks by the Mighty Oaks. It’s an anthem with a powerful message delivered by an emotional vocal performance from Alberts.

It becomes especially relatable in these times where it feels like we’ve all been holding on to fear and holding back. The song frees us from that weight "you don’t have to feel like this" and reminds us that we are meant to be free and connected, sharing our world with the people we love "we don’t have to do this on our own". "Letting Go" is a celebration of freedom and human connection that invites us to leave our comfort zones and live life at its fullest. It was released alongside a music video made with fans and friends that shows their adventures and how beautiful the world can be. You can watch the video and listen to the song below.

Included in our "Artist Pick" Spotify playlist.
