“You can only imagine the amount of times I thought about writing this. The way I would write it, how I would feel thereafter. Well, not entirely sure why now is the right time, and what it is that feels exciting and liberating for me to talk. I cannot explain it,” Duffy wrote in a prolonged Instagram post on the time accompanied by a black-and-white picture of her on a slender road.

Though Duffy didn’t identify her alleged abuser, she mentioned that over the course of her absence from music, her coronary heart slowly “unbroke.”

“You wonder why I did not choose to use my voice to express my pain? I did not want to show the world the sadness in my eyes,” she defined. “I asked myself, how can I sing from the heart if it is broken? And slowly it unbroke. In the following weeks I will be posting a spoken interview. If you have any questions I would like to answer them, in the spoken interview, if I can. I have a sacred love and sincere appreciation for your kindness over the years. You have been friends. I want to thank you for that x.”
