On the heels of his last two singles “Kisses Back” and “Hard To Love,” singer-songwriter and producer Matthew Koma today returns with the release of “Dear Ana” featuring Jai Wolf, a deeply personal track. Jai Wolf is performing at this year’s Coachella Festival.
“Dear Ana” is a slow-rolling and ardent ballad. The track showcases a tasteful mixture of Koma and Jai Wolf’s style in a seamless and fluid manner; effervescent synths, soaring melodies, and a beautiful topline. Matthew wrote this song last year during the early stages of his recovery from an eating disorder, and is an honest portrayal of his struggle and emotions during the recovery process.

Comments Koma: “’Dear Ana’ is a song about my battle with an eating disorder that nearly killed me. I always had some issues around body image and body dysmorphia but didn’t have the strength to face it or talk about it openly. I became so mentally and physically exhausted and it didn’t get any better in the context of shooting photos and music videos, doing promo etc. I finally hit a rock bottom when it was a matter of survival, but admitting it was only the first step of a very long and hard journey. I wrote this song during my first week of recovery. It takes conscious decisions every day to continue overcoming the thoughts, patterns and fears…but with the right support and headspace, I’m grateful to be heading in the right direction.“
Matthew Koma is one of the most accomplished writers behind numerous smash hits including Zedd’s “Spectrum,” and GRAMMY-winning hit “Clarity.”
