Linger is the latest single from Canadian singer and song-writer Alanna Clarke. Darker, more dangerous, and more electronic than her debut single Heartstrings, it’s a superb bolt from the blue, built around a top notch chorus that explodes into being with a few simple strong notes that sound like they want to echo round the room forever.

After leaving school early to concentrate on music full-time, an early meeting with Christopher Ward (best known for writing Black Velvet by another Canadian Artist, Alanna Myles) set Clarke on the path to writing new songs and heading out on the road. Heartstrings, Clarke’s debut single, was released in November 2014, and the 23-year old is currently back in the studio working on material for her first full-length release.
