WATCH: Serena Ryder Debuts 'Waterfall'


Canadian singer-songwriter has released “Waterfall,” a song she says is about the importance of crying.

“I have so many feelings that I have swallowed, and they add up, coming out one way or another – often by bypassing the truth, getting angry, defensive, even masking with partying or bad relationships,” Ryder explained, in a release. “I’ve found that tears are actually the best way to heal, because we actually release healing hormones when we cry.

“I’d love to normalize crying, and this is a song about the many times tears have healed me.”

The track is the second single from Ryder’s forthcoming album The Art of Falling Apart and follows July’s “Candy.”

Her first non-holiday studio album since 2017’s UtopiaThe Art of Falling Apart chronicles the 37-year-old’s struggle with mental health and her journey to wellness. Its 10 tracks were recorded over a period of only 10 days.

“Waterfall” debuted with a video – directed by Ryder with Cameron Roden – featuring Indigenous activist Sarain Fox. Watch it below:
