Ruston Kelly And Samia Collaborate
Ruston Kelly unveils a new version of “The Weakness”, reinterpreted as an atmospheric duet with singer-songwriter, Samia. A chance meeting in Nashville sparked a friendship between the two, and their mutual admiration inspired them to try their hand at collaborating on a new version of Kelly’s The Weakness, which is the title track of his acclaimed, recently released third studio album. Listen to the duo’s new version of The Weakness here.
“Samia brings that special infinity vibe,” said Kelly. “It’s like this familiar yet incredibly unique energy in everything I’ve heard her do. After hearing her sing, I became an instant fan. There wasn’t anyone other than her that I wanted to help me deconstruct ‘The Weakness’ and mold it into something new – something more haunting, and with a whole other emotional perspective. When we were in the studio, I found myself copying her interpretation of my phrasing, which added this cool synergy to us singing the song together.”
Kelly wraps up the first run of headline dates on The Weakness Tour with a special hometown show at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater. Later this month, he will join Noah Kahan for the first of a series of that will include stops in Atlanta, Charleston, New York City, Syracuse, Columbus, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Toronto, and others.
