Canadian songstress Audra Santa releases her debut UK single ‘Naked’ on 10th July on Copper House via CD Baby. The track has been taken from her forthcoming EP, ‘The Boudoir Project’, a collection of sensual, downtempo electronica that was a personal mode of self-expression she thought she would never share with anyone.
Audra says “Naked was written in secret in my bedroom. A night alone with a bassline and bottle of wine, I expressed myself in a way I never had before. The song is about how tangible sound can be when coupled with desire.”
The Boudoir Project sparked an awakening as Audra was healing from a broken marriage and years of repressing herself. Through the process of writing this record she discovered tantric energy, leading her down a path of self-discovery and meditation. A spontaneous kundalini awakening occurred, supporting her healing process and regaining parts of herself she thought she lost. Interestingly, she also experienced an emergence of new intuitive abilities, and now provides readings for others on a spiritual path.
“There has been an attempt to control female sexuality and expression since time immemorial” Audra says. “The Boudoir Project helped me regain control of my narrative, find my voice, and claim my freedom. Releasing ‘Naked’ is not just a matter of personal catharsis – I am hoping it may encourage others to connect with themselves.”
