Claire London Is Back In Black Leather

The Nashville-based singer-songwriter dresses for success with her latest single.

Claire London swaggers onto the scene in Black Leather with her sultry and soulful new single — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The Nashville singer-songwriter’s latest concoction melds soul, blues, rock, and pop, marking a vibrant new phase in her musical journey. Centered around London’s rich, iconic voice, Black Leather weaves through various musical styles, starting with a guitar-picked introduction that sets a compelling tone. The track layers dynamic melodies and a robust drumbeat, enhancing the sultry vocals and minimalist instrumentation. This combination evokes deep feelings of love and self-improvement, inspired by the first time London met her husband:

“Black leather, love letter,
You’re the only one that’s gonna make me better, baby.
A lover like no other,
Everything about you wants to make me be better, baby.”

Produced by Grammy winner Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay), this track is the third single from her forthcoming EP, Stardust, and her first release since 2020. “Black Leather is the sexiest one of the bunch, loosely based on meeting my husband, but is essentially about meeting someone who inspires you to be your best self,” London says.

From a young age, London realized her natural talent for singing and was determined to make music a significant part of her life. At 22, she moved to New York City to chase her musical dreams, performing in girl groups and cover bands, which led her to The Cutting Room Studios, where she first adopted her stage name. After releasing the album Like A Machine and the EP Hit The Switch, she co-founded Female Frequency, a collaborative space for women in the music industry, and relocated to Los Angeles.

After becoming a mother in 2020, Claire started the Mamas in Music podcast in connection with a non-profit entity, and was inspired to make a musical shift. She headed to Nashville, meeting producer Mitch Dane, and embracing a sound that is both raw and genuine, drawing influences from Fleetwood Mac, Civil Wars and Jack White. Stardust reflects her rock and blues origins and showcases her authentic artistic identity. Black Leather spotlights her artistic evolution, revealing a passionate and untamed side that stands distinct from her previous work. The song captures the essence of her journey and the transformative power of inspiration in love and art.
