Anna Sofia Releases Her New Single “Surround Me”
Certain songs have to unique ability to make listeners close their eyes and let the song take over them. Singer-songwriter Anna Sofia has curated this type of track with her new single “Surround Me”.
From the first seconds of the song, the slow piano melody mixed with Sofia’s angelic voice snatches the listener’s attention. Once the background violin comes in, the song’s heavenly aura becomes more noticeable.
Sofia speaks about the loss of a loved one. However, instead of grieving the person, she speaks about the spiritual world that she believes her loved one went to. She questions how the loved one represents themselves in her reality. Sofia wants the late beloved to continue to show itself to help her heal from the loss.
“Are you dancing in the air around me? Are you playing with my hair while I sleep? Whatever they say it doesn’t matter, leave your trace like rings of Saturn surround me surround me.”

This song has helped me cope with some of the deaths I have experienced.”
