Los Angeles, January 26th – Eleanor Henderson, the newest rising star in the music scene, has unveiled a soul-stirring debut single “Patience.” The artist provides a heartfelt exploration of unrequited love and the rollercoaster of emotions that accompany it. The single is a poignant blend of bittersweet melodies and introspective lyrics, capturing the essence of longing and the willingness to wait for something truly extraordinary.

Inspired by the realization of feelings for a dear friend, “Patience” navigates the complexities of love, bad timing, and the anticipation of what could be. The artist reflects on the experience of being caught in the paradox of emotions—simultaneously painful and wonderful.

The song’s imagery is deeply rooted in the artist’s connection to the piano on which the song was composed—an out-of-tune grand piano with haunting and lovely tones. The lyrics evoke a sense of longing, with vivid imagery of a ghostly presence, amplifying the emotional intensity of the song.

About Patience:

Reflecting on the song title, Henderson humorously notes the irony of being notoriously impatient in life, making the experience of creating “Patience” a significant lesson in learning to wait. 

“I am horribly impatient and I have been my whole life. My mom is always telling me to be patient, this is easily my number one character flaw. So it felt like a Big Lesson From The Universe that this time, I would have to learn to be patient.”

“This was one of those songs that just clicked right off the bat. I brought it to the studio, played it for my producer, and we had such a clear picture of what the song was going to be, so the process of laying down the track and adding layers was so smooth. Everything just worked —it was one of those studio sessions where the song just gives itself to you.

I’d never had a song happen like this–I was trying to play “Chasing Cars,” I played the first two chords, and before I played the last one, my whole brain went, “Play Bb instead!” That new chord progression made me feel insane inside: I wanted to write whatever that song was right now.

Up until that point, I had always written lyrics first, and figured out some guitar chords later. But for this song, I kept playing that chord progression over, and just sang words that felt right. It was almost spooky–I don’t know where that song came from, but I’m glad it came to see me.”
