Listen: Molly Payton releases new song 'Handle'.

Molly Payton has just shared the latest track 'Handle' from her upcoming 'Compromise' EP - set for release on November 11th.

On the meaning behind the song, Payton shares: “I wrote ‘Handle’ last year in early winter. We couldn’t afford an airbnb so we were staying at my manager’s mother in law’s house in Greenwich, pet-sitting her Tortoise. I moved to London at 16, and for the first few years I was in such a rush to experience everything that I ended up burning out a bit. Then I experienced a huge loss which upended my life and led to me moving home to New Zealand. I really felt a bit like I was never going to be okay again, and even after moving back to London I struggled for a long time. Two years on, I’m sitting in this garden in Greenwich and the sun comes out and my boyfriend's upstairs, and I just got that ‘wow things are okay now’ kinda feeling. Although initially the song was for him, when I listen to ‘Handle’ now it reminds me of that feeling of peace and relief I felt that day, so really I think the track is now for me more than anyone.”
