Janet Devlin’s stunning new single rides the waves made by September 2019’s ‘Confessional’, a track that announced her return to the industry to retake her crown as the queen of quirky folk-pop. Written with song-writing team Alkemi, and producer Jonathan Quarmby (Lewis Capaldi, Tom Walker) in the winter of 2016 when Janet was aged 21, ‘Saint of the Sinners’ is an expression of marching melancholy, revealing a past full of hurt, regret and the damaging and destructive perils of depression.
The song was a labor of love; undergoing numerous lyrical and structural changes before it emerged as the driving yet melodic piece you hear today. “It is one of my favourite tracks on the album, and much like ‘Confessional’, it was never meant to be a single. But to me, it’s the natural next piece of the puzzle which is laying the foundation for the album.”
‘Saint of the Sinners’ is Janet’s second single and the third track from her hotly-anticipated concept album Confessional, which is set for release in Spring 2020.
