Katy Rose Bennett releases evocative brand new single "Where Does It Hurt?"

The track "deals with shame, vulnerability, empathy, and connection between people and through music."

Renowned folk singer and musician Katy Rose Bennett released her latest work today. The song titled "Where Does It Hurt?", whose inspiration Bennett drew from an interview with civil rights legend Ruby Sales and BrenΓ© Brown's work, is a soulful, melancholy folk piece that foreruns her upcoming sixth solo album.

The track "deals with shame, vulnerability, empathy, and connection between people and through music," said Bennett in a statement. Written in a cabin by the sea back in 2019, "Where Does It Hurt?" also features fellow folk artist Ruthie Lindsay's intricate and captivating string quartet arrangement.

Bennett's illustrious career already spans for more than 20 years. Best known for her sophisticated kind of musical aestheticism, the Birmingham songwriter melds elements of contemporary Americana, pop, and subtle touches of sonata.

Here's what Ruby Sales herself said of the track after Bennet sent it to her:

"I have just listened to 'Where Does It Hurt?', and I must tell you that its beauty and depth of feeling brought tears to my seasoned eyes. It is extraordinary how you took the phrase 'where does it hurt' and drew out of it the obvious and hidden hurt that we experience and repress. In my estimation, the brilliance of the song is that it touches our particular feelings as well as draws out our universal ones which makes it a song that everyone can walk into and locate themselves."
