Rising British recording artist Benji Brown continues to showcase all sides of his artistic personality this week, with the unveiling of his latest single Let It All Go – a self-reflective, super soulful R&B ballad that looks set to catapult Brown into the mainstream.
Serving as the follow up to Déjà Vu and Yesterday’s Love (which was inspired by an unreleased demo recorded the 22-year-old’s sister, indie pop singer-songwriter V V Brown), the emotive track sees Benji reflect upon a time in his life when he had to make peace with the fact that the love he felt in is heart for his partner was no longer enough, and in order to be happy, he would have to move on.
Commenting on the single, Brown says: “‘Let It All Go’ is about a past relationship. It’s about leaving someone behind when you didn’t want to but knowing it’s best for yourself. After some time you try to reconnect again but the initial scars that hurt are still hurting, it’s time to let it all go and move on.”
