April 19th, 2019 [Los Angeles, CA] – Singer-songwriter, Kara Connolly, premiered her new bold and cinematic new single Let Me Go this week on Hollywood Life. “Let Me Go” will be on her upcoming LP Life in Rear View, out May 17th.

“Let Me Go” is a coming of age anthem with a powerful message surrounding being true to yourself and forging your own path despite what others may want or think. Kara addresses codependency, pulls away from the paralyzing and gripping expectations of others (as well as her own fearful thoughts), and steps into the autonomy of being herself and confidently making her own decisions despite what anyone else, even those closest to her, may say or think.

“I tend to write about direct personal experience, but “Let Me Go” was actually inspired by a friend whose parents were not accepting of who he is and were resisting allowing him to grow into the person he wanted to be,” Kara explains. “It goes out to anyone who feels the need to break free of a habit, pattern, or person holding them back, anyone in need of a little self-love—flaws and all, and anyone who feels the pull to forge their own path despite adversity. You are allowed to believe what you believe (or not believe what you don’t), to love who you love, to pursue whatever dream it is you want to pursue, and to, most of all, not feel sorry about it.”
