who is tones?

Global superstar and multi-award-winning songwriter Tones And I has shared a new standalone single titled 'I Am Free'. Commenting on the new song, Tones And I shared, "'I Am Free' is a song about relationships in my life, that have ended. It's about self-reflecting on those relationships, acknowledging that I still carry parts of them with me and taking my share of responsibility for what happened. I wrote the song, composed it, co-produced it, and recorded it with my choir and an orchestra. I also wrote and co-directed the film clip and wanted it to be powerful, joyful and anthemic." 'I Am Free' follows Tones And I's recent single 'I Made It' – composed for the Netflix original film True Spirit - her 2022 single 'Charlie' and her feature on Macklemore’s 'Chant'. The pair debuted the collaboration on Good Morning America with an electrifying performance in New York City’s Central Park.
