Clara LA San Emerges With New Single

Renowned for her classically emotive yet modernist sound, enigmatic composer, producer, and singer Clara La San returns today with a potent new single and video, “Don’t Worry About It”, out now via her imprint CLS Music (AWAL Recordings) — the first release from her label partnership. With swirling, celestial melodies and a sensual, trapped-out beat, the single is emblematic of Clara La San’s resounding talent in writing and arranging songs that sound fresh and feel instantly familiar. Its accompanying video directed by Actual Objects (Dua Lipa, Caroline Polachek, Young Thug) finds the R&B siren traversing a desert expanse at dusk—a striking backdrop that exquisitely reflects the song’s themes of isolation and longing. “Don’t Worry About It” is Clara La San’s first new release since the 2023 re-release of “In This Darkness”, which garnered hundreds of millions of plays across streaming services, earning her solo sound a rightfully due nod. Last week, Clara was revealed as one of only two features on hitmaker Bryson Tiller’s forthcoming self-titled album.

While her music is steeped in a holistic listening of myriad musical strands—from early aughts R&B to contemporary rap instrumentals—Clara La San braids her influences with inspirations from cinema scores and up-to-the-second sound design, also thanks to additional production provided by Yves Rothman (Amaarae, Blondshell, Yves Tumor) and mixing by the iconic Tony Maserati (Mary J Blige, Beyonce, Lady Gaga) to express a singular style of soul and pop. Her palpable style is matched by a rare ability for conceiving top line vocal melodies, layered in blushing harmonies that instantly imprint on the memory and have kept her growing and devoted fanbase, including many other artists and peers, returning for more.

Clara La San deploys her enviably natural feel for extended melody at the service of telling stories borne from lived experience. Her discreet, observant skill at divining sensual poetry from everyday life has only grown more notable since early guest vocal appearances prompted her to front her own mixtape. Good Mourning, co-produced with UK electronic producer Jam City, was released in 2017, since deleted from DSPs – only adding to the mysterious allure weaved across her persona. Subsequent songwriting credits for the likes of Yves Tumor and Bicep have proven her range and unleashed Clara La San’s confidence in a solo sound that speaks to her maturity and dare-to-differ approach to working in the music industry.
