De’Borah Powell and the Benefactors release the visuals for new single ‘Love Can’t Be Controlled’

British singer-songwriter De’Borah Powell is reintroducing herself to her fans with a new collective ‘De’Borah Powell and The Benefactors’ after a 5-year hiatus that allowed her to craft a new song. Her new single ‘Love Can’t Be Controlled’ has been recently unveiled and shows another side of her musical artistry. With this new song, De’Borah Powell highlights her musicianship and vocal talent and gives us a taste of what is to come in the future. ‘Love Can’t Be Controlled’ kicks off with haunting, repetitive haunting lyrics, The cyclical structure becomes a mantra of sorts.

“Love can’t be controlled, it’s out of our hands
Give up your right to understand 
Gotta let go, gotta let go”

The music video that accompanies the new song uses the concept of fire to tackle the subject of non-attachment and letting go. 

 ‘I wrote this song at the end of a prolonged season of unrequited love. At the time I was feeling offended that things hadn’t gone the way I thought they should, and wanted to control and manipulate the outcome. So the lyrics express the fact that whether love is requited or not (or turns out the way you think) hold on to it lightly, don’t operate from a place of control/entitlement but of openness – because that’s what love is in the end – an openness to life, possibility and believing the best of every person or situation.’

Love Can’t Be Controlled is now available on all digital platforms: smarturl.it/love20
