New Release: Alela Diane – When We Believed

Portland-based songwriter Alela Diane has released her new single ‘When We Believed’. Produced by Tucker Martine, the single is the third track to be released this summer, following ‘Howling Wind’ and ‘Paloma’.

Speaking about the new single, Diane says: “‘When We Believed’ is a song of reflection, of letting go, and reckoning with former selves, and expected outcomes. It is a look back at a time in life when I moved and traveled freely, from the perspective of stillness. In this stillness, I can find the joy of a small child, picking a rosebud and leaving the stem behind.”

Alela Diane is a Portland, Oregon based singer-songwriter who grew up in the winding rivers and golden hillsides of Nevada City, California. As a child, she listened to her parents harmonise bluegrass songs in the kitchen and began writing her own songs when she moved to San Francisco at the age of nineteen. Diane has been releasing albums since her move to the NW in the mid 2000s and has toured extensively throughout Europe and North America.
