Bessie Turner – Donkey

Suffolk alt-pop artist Bessie Turner released her debut single Big Sleep in April 2017. Three years on, her new track Donkey is her eighth. It comes after Bessie overcame health hurdles, being diagnosed with sepsis.

Although the lyrics are rather dark, Donkey is a triumphant-sounding guitar-based tune. “It’s an observational song referring to the loss of a loved one and the chaotic time that went hand in hand with grief”, she comments. “About uncertainty and the fact that we actually have no idea what we’re really doing in life for a lot of it. (…) It’s about late, late nights and trying to lose your head. About desperation and finding peace.”
