Alec and Clary are thrown into anguish as Jace takes his final breath, and all of that intense pain is perfectly captured by the sombre melodies of Fleurie's new single, 'Hurricane', available right now on iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube. Read on to check out Fleurie's shout-out video, the single cover art, and some exclusive commentary from both Shadowhunters music supervisor, Lindsay Wolfington, and Fleurie herself.
Check out Fleurie's message to all us Shadowhunters fans:
She released the music video just in time for the Shadowhunters season 2 finale.
Fleurie offers a thoughtful look into what 'Hurricane' is all about:
"Hurricane is a song about longing for closeness with someone you love and yet fearing heartbreak. You find yourself caught in a terrible storm as those emotions war inside of you. I write scenes into my songs because I see pictures when I hear lyrics. Shadowhunters brought this picture to life."

Lindsay Wolfington explains how and why 'Hurricane' was chosen for this crucial Shadowhunters finale moment:
“We knew this was a huge emotional moment in the show, and I wanted to find a song that embodied what it felt like to be devastated: to feel like the floors were giving way under you, helpless, nothing left to live for. That’s what I imagined Clary feeling in that moment, and what I felt like Alec would feel as his Parabatai. I was describing this to my associate at Razor & Tie Records and moment later she emailed me - "Check out this brand new track we got in from Fleurie.” I heard those piano chords - simple, haunting, and yes, devastating. And the lyrics “I can hear your heart hanging in the air… this is harder than we know.” The song has an epic build, too, which I wasn’t sure we’d need or not as the scene continued. We played with using the bigger parts of the song, but ultimately everyone decided that this moment was pure grief and there were no frills about it. It’s a gorgeous song, and I hope it gives you chills like it did for us!”
