Lungs is the debut EP of budding Bay Area singerDevon Baldwin, released on November 10th, 2015.
The cover art was revealed along with the track“Backwards,” featured as the second track on the EP.
Devon describes the story behind how her name for her first EP came to be in her interview after Outside Lands with Marin IJ. The article talks about her story.
Devon recalls, “I was sitting on the couch when I felt a pain in my back, so I kept trying to crack my back by arching it. I’m hyper flexible, and I ended up arching it so much that my lung ripped open. Once you’re lung rips like that, it doesn’t heal on its own very well.”
Devon underwent several surgeries and excruciating pain while healing her lung. Singing had been a part of her life from a young age and went his happened, her doctor wasn’t positive she was going to able to sing again. While she recovered, she stated that “I was on a lot of Vicodin for pain, and all I could do was sit and write lyrics for hours.” During this time she wrote several of the songs that will be on her debut EP. When it came time for her to record and name the EP, she didn’t have to look far to find an idea for it.
Lungs essentially are my instrument, and they’ve been a huge part of this whole journey for me for the past year.
