Dani Assis Unveils Captivating New Single: "My Own Embrace (Blue in Green)"

August 10 – Renowned artist Dani Assis is set to enchant the music world once again with the release of their latest single, "My Own Embrace (Blue in Green)". This soul-stirring composition is an emotive portrayal of life in a state of melancholy, capturing the essence of yearning for brighter seasons while being immersed in the depths of sadness.


Guided by the haunting melodies of Miles Davis' original composition "Blue in Green", Dani Assis skillfully crafts a narrative that resonates deeply with listeners. The lyrics paint a vivid picture of the struggle faced by those trapped within the confines of depression, depicting a world where perception is skewed and the desire for happiness is ever-present.

In the opening stanza, Assis beautifully articulates the challenge of perceiving a place meant for solace amid the overwhelming fog of despair. This "symptom of the blue in green" vividly encapsulates the intertwining of sadness and life, symbolized by the colors blue and green respectively.


The second stanza brings forth the image of a bird yearning for freedom yet confined by its own embrace, capturing the essence of the song's title. The melancholic scene evokes a sense of being trapped in one's own emotions, suffocating the hopes and dreams that long for release.

"I wonder if it's me?" – the closing question reverberates, leaving listeners with a contemplative finale. 

Assis intentionally leaves this query open-ended, inviting the audience to explore their own interpretations and reconcile their feelings with the emotional journey presented in the song.


Notably, "My Own Embrace (Blue in Green)" features a collaboration of musical luminaries, including Maestro Ron Carter, Nanny Assis, Pete Levin, and Tolga Bilgin. Their collective artistry adds depth and texture to the composition, enhancing its ability to resonate on a profound level.

Listeners can immerse themselves in the captivating world of "My Own Embrace (Blue in Green)" on various music streaming platforms starting August 25. The single promises to be a poignant addition to Dani Assis' impressive repertoire, delivering a message of empathy and understanding for those navigating the intricate landscape of emotions
