Leon Else has released his new song Beautiful World, which premiered exclusively on Billboard Pride last week.
The British singer-songwriter, who has already amassed 20 million streams for songs including My Kind Of Love and Cheap Hotel, is keeping the momentum going with Beautiful World following up May’s Signs. Take a listen below:
Beautiful World was written by Else, along with his long-time collaborator JT Bangs. The powerful ballad came to life following Else’s diagnosis of bipolar disorder. He documented his journey with his mental health in a vulnerable, new visual titled My Journey.
The collection of personal videos offers a powerful insight to Else’s daily life, as he copes with his diagnosis on a day to day basis. With the release of this song and visual during Mental Health Awareness Month, Else hopes to start a conversation and join the fight to destigmatize mental health.
After struggling for 27 years of his life with his mental health, Leon sought help. He is now reclaiming his independence as an artist and individual, and creating music he feels is authentic to himself.
Signs and Beautiful World will feature on the Beautiful World EP out this Summer via AWAL.
