Connecticut-based singer-songwriter Frank Viele shares a heartfelt and vulnerable new track entitled “Claws,” a follow-up to his previously released track “The Trouble With Desire,” both leading up to his forthcoming 2024 LP.

Wrote Viele of his newest single:

“I once read that when we guess how somebody is feeling, we’re wrong 78% of the time. When the person you’re guessing about is somebody you love that has, seemingly out of nowhere, walked away from you, your first reaction will be to blame it on yourself. Then, you’ll look to every aspect of your own being to find the things about yourself that could have possibly pushed this person away. ‘Claws’ is an introspective song that shines a light on that specific moment when you are doing the unhealthy practice of breaking down every aspect of yourself mentally to come face to face with what you believe are your flaws. The story of the song runs deeper as it ties to mental health and the struggles that come with trusting love and self worth. But I’ll save that story for another day.”

Frank Viele’s newest release, “Claws” is out now via all DSPs. Stay tuned for more, coming later this year.
