Tina Arena returns with her first new music offering in over five years, and her first ever independent release. “Church” sets the tone for a series of singles to be released by Arena this year and the beginning of a new chapter of her incredible career.
“Church” is a return to Arena’s roots - a powerful song that showcases her unmistakable voice. Emotionally rich, fearless and inspiring, confessional and redeeming, this is the sound of a world-class artist genuinely liberated, musically and creatively, for the first time in years.
The single was recorded last year with some of her closest friends in a tiny church in Sweden, with Duran Duran’s Andy Taylor on guitar and Swedish powerhouse Mattias Lindblom in the producer’s seat. Despite the name, the song is not deep in religious undertones, but more an empowering anthem for Arena’s journey towards her next musical chapter.
