Leeds based rising artist Eden Rain displays her vocal talent in a new single ‘Bed (For The Year)’. The track is taken from the singer’s debut EP ‘Gutter Vision’, which is set for release in May. Rain’s intricate songs are built around her soaring vocals and clever lyricsm. ‘Bed (For The Year)’ is a preview of what’s to come from the singer’s debut EP, and if it’s any indication, then the EP is sure to be a success.
About 10 years ago, when I was in high school, I was given a book called ‘The Woman Who Went To Bed For A Year’. It was written by Sue Townsend and it sat on my bookshelf for a really long time and I didn’t actually read it, I just always stared at the cover of the book from my bed. When I was sad, (classic) for an extended period of time (depressed), I found that I couldn’t stay away from my bed. I read the book then because I was like ‘ugh, wish I could be in bed for a year’, and it’s about a married woman who’s twin children move away from home and she goes to bed for a year and doesn’t leave. And so that’s what the book is and what the song is based on, in a nutshell. I return to the book (and the bed) when life gets hard and I wanted to write an ode to that.
