Flint Eastwood Celebrates Pride with “Real Love”
Flint Eastwood’s “Real Love” is out now via Assemble Sound
Detroit-based artist Flint Eastwood is closing out Pride month with the release of her latest track “Real Love.” The new single marks Jax Anderson’s first release since her Broke Royalty EP dropped in 2017, and also finds the rising artist addressing the LGBTQ+ community, her personal orientation, and identity for the first time.
Following a lifetime of disheartening experiences and being forced to repress her own identity, Anderson decided to part professional ways with her childhood church after being asked to write an article about a young woman the church had “saved” from being gay. Sadly, these close-minded attempts continue, with Jax learning her childhood pastor recently received an award for a “workshop” that intentionally targets females ages 11-13 who are questioning their sexuality. This “workshop,” which has garnered heavy waves of backlash and protest, continues in secret and is a new phrase for the discredited gay conversion therapies seen across the globe.
In response, Jax wrote “Real Love,” a celebration of finding all the things her church told her she’d never find as a gay-identifying female.
Fans at Firefly were lucky to catch a first listen of “Real Love” a few weeks ago and now the single is available on all streaming platforms! Catch Flint Eastwood opening for GRiZ at Red Rocks next month or on tour this fall — full dates below.
