Indie-pop artist LORENNA releases song about bipolar disorder & PTSD.
LORENNA has released a song about both mental illness and love. She talks openly about having Bipolar 1 in her lyrics and interviews and opened up to us about her songwriting process and inspiration. The ability to go deep in her lyrics showcases how brilliant she is as a songwriter and marks her artistry as truly authentic. “Wasn’t Made For Love” is the type of song that can truly help someone. Her honest lyrical approach is something that many struggling with mental illness could relate to and perhaps find comfort in. The music is soothing and her vocal delivery matches the vibe to create a perfect track that is sonically pleasing.
“I wrote this song because of how I was feeling at the time. I have Bipolar 2 and I have family members with Schizophrenia and Bipolar 1. I have experienced a lot of trauma growing up and I realized how deeply it affected my love life.” – LORENNA
LORENNA’s visually stunning music video for “‘Wasn’t Made For Love” features statistics and information about PTSD [post traumatic stress disorder]. Using art to educate and make the public more socially aware is a heroic thing to do. Enjoy the video via YouTube:
“My favorite thing to do is to listen to pop music and analyze the lyrics, and I noticed a lot of popular songs are about this universal feeling of being love. The subject matter is about being in relationships: about either losing someone or falling head over heels for another person. I felt my trauma only left me feeling disconnected from potential partners for years, so I wrote a song called, “Wasn’t Made for Love,” to release on Valentine’s Day to express this disconnect.” – LORENNA
