Mi Ritiro is a slow tempo Italian lyrical ballad that captures Natasha’s beautiful vocals, which seamlessly unite the contemporary/operatic divide.

Of the lyrics, Natasha explains “Sometimes we can unknowingly romanticise someone and make them into a version that we want to believe; this song is about the realization of having to unravel that and return to yourself whole, ready to tell a new story”.
