Emerging singer-songwriter and Nashville-native Savannah Conley released her new single, Never Want To Be In Love. Co-written with Andrew Petroff (Sheryl Crow, Devon Gilfillian) and the song’s producer Gabe Simon (Dua Lipa, COIN), Conley offers up a song about heartbreak. Savannah spoke with The Fountain about the new track as well as her influences.

TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Never Want To Be In Love

It has honestly been better than we expected. I wasn’t totally sure the best way to handle releasing new music in the current climate. I wanted to be as sensitive as possible, but it turns out that people still need music, just as much as we always have, if not more. When everything is upside down (some good, some bad) music still makes sense. 

TF: How would you sum it up in one sentence? 

In regards to the song, I would say it’s a song about trying to let go of the fear of love. 

TF: Who do you look to or idolise when it comes to influences with this track?

Ah, I think that one might be even too obvious, ha! I’m the world’s biggest Coldplay fan, love them or hate them. They have always really influenced me, but I think it really comes out in this track. 

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year after this single release?

This is the first single to be released from a six song EP, so we will keep on releasing singles all of this year until it eventually builds up to a full project. Hopefully we’ll be able to tour sooner rather than later, but sadly it’s up to Covid-19 for that one.
