FROM BROOKLYN WITH LOVE: LEAONE’S ‘4th OF JULY’ OUT NOW.
OUT today, the new single from dark alt-pop artist Leaone (‘Lee-Own’), which just happens to be called, ‘4th of July.’
Written and recorded in Brooklyn, NY with Lana Del Rey’s longstanding band mate, Tom Marsh, and mixed by Abe Seiferth (Nation of Language, Yeasayer), ‘4th of July’ is taken from Leaone’s forthcoming debut album, ‘Kings County.’
Adopting the idea of ‘Independence Day’ on a personal, the song is about finding and channelling your own energy, believing in yourself; staying true to your own path, and not letting others drag you down.
“I found great confidence working on my album in Brooklyn, meeting so many amazing New Yorkers who believed anything was possible and always encouraged me to reach for the skies,” explained Leaone.
“It’s about seeing the beauty in someone when they might be struggling to see it for themselves, holding their hand and saying, “you know what, you’re freakin’ amazing.” It’s ultimately a love song, a message to people to look beyond life’s muck and mire, because there are gems to be found.”
Earlier singles drew heady comparisons with the likes of Johnny Cash, Elliot Smith and The National, while album ‘Kings County,’ produced by and co-written with Tom Marsh will be released on September 8th.
