The Dublin R&B artist Melina Malone is back with some solo music, after recent collaborations with Mango x Mathman (RIP) and Max Zaska.
Following on from 2021’s ‘No Better Place’, Melina’s new song ‘Lovers Sunday’ showcases her honey-dripped voice, on a summery laid-back jam, that is to feature on a forthcoming album.
“Sunday for me has always been a day for love and reciprocity, of healing and rest,” says Melina. “This track embodies all of those feelings for me. It’s sensual, dreamy, woozy. “
“Lovers Sunday tells a story of two twin flames meeting (maybe for the first time, maybe for the 100th) on the Saturday night before, and how they came to be together on Sunday. I wanted to embody the essence of female empowerment, it’s a story of a woman stepping into her power and sensuality, owning that control she has over the other person. Sunday will always be for the lovers ❣️”

The tune drops on DSPs on Friday May 26th.
Melina worked on a debut album over the past year with Irish producers Alex O’Keefe (LYRA, Jafaris, Fia Moon) and Adam Shanahan (Shiv, Bobbi Arlo, Nealo).
To celebrate the release of ‘Lovers Sunday’, Melina Malone is having a single launch gig at The Button Factory’s upstairs Crowbar Terrace. Funky soul/house bops will be provided by DJ Adam Shanahan. Tickets are sold out but keep an eye.
Lovers Sunday was written by Melina Malone, produced by Alex O’Keefe, co-produced by Steven McCann, mixed by Adam Shanahan, and mastered by Richard Dowling
