Nicolina shared that the song is about how heartbreak is very real. She says, “It’s a beautiful yet haunting depiction of grief.” She explained that after listening “tons” locations, she decided that none of them spoke to her. Because she loves “feel and move through song”, she was “on the moon” when she found out that remaking “Glitter” was an option for her first big release. Nicolina shared that she knew this would be the song she “fall in love with everything again.”


Fritz Hager – “Hearts Align”

Fritz teamed up with producer King Henry for his single “Hearts Align”. Although Fritz performed many of his original songs on american idol, he didn’t write this one. However, he has a american idol connection as it was co-written by Season 18 runner-up Francisco Martin. The song is about the singer thinking about his significant other and wanting their relationship back when their hearts aligned. In an Instagram post, Fritz was thrilled to announce the release of “Hearts Align,” saying: “It’s an awesome song and I’m so excited to share it with you!”


HunterGirl – “Red Bird”

In an Instagram post, HunterGirl shared that she cried in the writing room when she wrote this song. She says she wrote “Red Bird” because when she was little, her family always told her that when people see cardinals, they are signs from heaven that family members are looking after them. In an interview with musical chaosHunterGirl shared how the night her first episode of american idol first, she was driving to her family’s house and she felt “terrified” to be on television. HunterGirl worried that people wouldn’t like her or think she was good enough. She said she asked God for a sign that everything was going to be okay, and a red bird flew through her window and then more flew as she drove down the road. HunterGirl took this as a good sign and returned to Nashville the day after the american idol episode aired and wrote the song. She says, “It’s a song from my heart. I hope this song can help someone like it helped me when I wrote it.”
