Anna Graves Releases Highly Anticipated New Single “Made To Love Someone

Anna Graves returns today with the release of her buzzy new single “Made to Love Someone.” The track features simple production that puts her vulnerable, ripped-from-her-life lyrics at the forefront. An echoing acoustic guitar line and wispy harmonies create the backbone of the recording — showing Graves at her most raw.

Her words are connecting, even catching the attention of heavy hitters like Noah Kahan and Chelsea Cutler. Ahead of its release, “Made to Love Someone” found an eager audience on TikTok, with nearly 4,000 people creating videos featuring a clip of the song. Additionally, almost 10,000 people pre-saved the single before its Feb. 2 debut. On the track, Graves states: “In ‘Made to Love Someone,’ I delve into the honest pursuit of love, navigating through the sometimes-painful twists of life. This song encapsulates the essence of becoming vulnerable and is a heartfelt invitation to join me on this introspective exploration.”


Growing up on her family’s farm in rural southern Minnesota, outside Minneapolis, Anna Graves was ready to trade the 40 acres of horses, hay fields, and lack of television in the rectory-turned-house her family called home for life in a big city and a music career. After several years in Nashville and Los Angeles, though, Graves is learning that, as the saying goes, there’s no place like home. Her decision to move back to the farm in early 2023 turned out to be the best thing she could have done for herself. Coming home has refreshed Graves, both personally and professionally. With her phone hidden away, she spends hours in her family’s music room writing lyrics, picking a guitar, and playing the antique piano she learned to play when she was seven years old. After years of grinding, she feels back in touch with what first inspired her to consider becoming a songwriter: the heartfelt and raw music of artists such as Tracy Chapman, fellow Minnesotan Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, and other singer-songwriters she’d hear on her painter mother’s favorite alternative radio station.  Love is the overarching theme in Graves’ new music — not only romantic love, but also, and perhaps more importantly, self-love. The latter, in particular, has been a journey for Graves, who has discovered that the more compassion she has for herself and the more trust she puts in herself, the better the outcome.
