LGBTQ+ activist, singer-songwriter, opinion-maker, equality hero, though-provoker, producer, kick-ass dresser and general good egg, Piera Van De Wiel – who you may know from her 2019 single ‘Come Back Home’, or her lockdown heart-breaker ‘Hold You In a Month’, or her humanitarianism that’s been rewarded with a Silver Medal for Outstanding Achievement in Listener Impact at the Global Music Awards, or, well, all of the above – is bringing a sunshine-y dollop of summer loving to your playlists, just in time for Pride month (and beyond, seeing as you ask).
Deeply personal but never sloping into the melancholy, ‘Love Is Meant For You’ is an introspective song with a universal message; everyone deserves love, everyone can give it, and no-one should be afraid of expressing it. It’s also a bit of a kick up the bottom for those of us who are umming and ahhing about that crush you got going on. Because, after the year we’ve had, what have we got to lose?
“Ooze love, joy and Pride!” says Piera. “Anyone can love and be loved. As a proud member of the gorgeous LGBTQ+ community I’m so happy to share this track and most importantly give out love to you all. I believe it’s so important to reveal your true self and your true feelings to the one you like most. I know it’s freakin’ scary, but I believe it’s a risk worth taking!”
A celebration of the most human of emotions, ‘Love Is Meant For You’ is the soul-stirring summer anthem we’ve been looking for. And goes particularly well with that bottle of Pimm’s you’ve been chilling.
