Saleka – Red Eyes


Following her performance on The Kelly Clarkson Show and Bonnaroo in late June, R&B songstress Saleka returns with her enchanting new single, “Red Eyes.”

“‘Red Eyes’ is a true millennial ‘love’ song. It’s a snapshot journal entry about the dissonance of feeling something real while existing in a world obsessed with instant gratification and overstimulation,” Saleka shares. “Knowing it probably won’t last amidst this chaos of temptation and competition, and compromising for one night of something resembling connection. The title is meant to carry multiple connotations. On the surface, the image of “red eyes” alludes to heartbreak and tears, or intoxication and addiction—the usual effects of toxic love. But I also liked the idea of alluding to red-eye flights—the state of being nowhere, physically and temporally in-between places, awaiting a destination. That’s sort of what this period of life feels like to me sometimes.”

Saleka will also open for Giveon on his Give Or Take Tour 2022.
