Mary Middlefield's "Heart's Desire" Is Brave and Vulnerable
Mary Middlefield's new single is bitter, sad, intimate, vulnerable, riotous, gut-wrenching, warm... Yes, all of that at the same time. The singer bravely tells the story of statutory rape, aided by epic strings, dreamy guitars and subdued drumming. Read her comment to learn more about the track's story.

Mary Middlefield
It's a song about statutory rape and knowingly falling for someone who's manipulating you and inappropriately older than you. It's not a love song and it shouldn't be seen that way. As young women, we're often preyed on by people with authority who not only use toxic methods to get the results they'd like, but also project their desires, whether sexual, professional or both. I really wanted to put that in a song, i.e, how it feels to live through the abuse and experience it first hand. I don't want to give too much of my personal experience away: most of it is already in the song anyway.
