After releasing their captivating single, “Happiness Is Overrated,” and full-length album Crying In The Shower earlier in the year, Letdown. has returned with a soul-stirring, reimagined rendition of their 2023 album’s title track. This beautifully crafted piano-laden interpretation of “Crying In The Shower” arrives via Big Loud Rock.

The reimagined track, accompanied by an intimate and visually arresting music video, takes listeners through a tidal wave of emotions, driven to new levels of unrestrained anguish courtesy of Letdown.’s passionate visionary, Blake Coddington, and his mesmerizing delivery. Seated solemnly behind a grand piano with delicate, twinkling piano keys adding a haunting quality to the track, Coddington begins to sing the opening lines: “Crying in the shower/Fucked up from the pain/You never liked diamonds/Only shit that you break.” His gripping prowess is brimming with vulnerability, and the soul-baring lyrics seemingly take on a new form than the original.

As the intricate notes of the piano reverberate and Coddington’s vocals melt seamlessly into the climatic chorus, belting out, “I don’t want to learn another lesson/I don’t wanna lose my head,” he’s joined by an array of string instrumentalists on violin and cello. Their contributions to the track further embellish the interpretation with a profound sense of melancholy and majestic grandeur. Together, the instrumentalists and Coddington create a soundscape cascading with somberness and breathe new life into an already remarkable song. 

Of the reimagined release, Coddington eloquently shares, “I took a song that I feel is very personal to us all about loss, regret, and moving on, and turned it towards my roots as a songwriter using orchestral and classical instruments and playing styles. I think it takes the song in a whole new emotional direction.”
