‘Love Again’ instantly captivates the listener as RuthAnne’s powerful vocal takes center stage.

The track is about RuthAnne convincing another that ‘love’ still exists and if they allow her in, she can help them to love again.
On ‘Love Again’, RuthAnne explains: “I wrote the idea down for this song after I had a few dates with someone who had just gone through a break up. He said to me ‘I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to love again’ and I immediately wrote it down on my phone and underneath I wrote ‘I know that I can make you learn to love again’.
When writing the song I was thinking of all the things in life we do when we lose out, when we fail, when we get our hearts broken. I realised that no matter what happens I always believe in trying again and never giving up on love or my dreams and so I wrote the song thinking about that and how important it is to always keep your heart open and that the love is out there. Go where the love is.”
The track follows on from RuthAnne’s previous singles ‘The Vow’, ‘Take My Place’, ‘Liquid’ and ‘It Is What It Is’ which have a combined 30 million streams.
