LAUNCHING FIRST SOLO MUSIC OFF THE HEELS OF HIS SUCCESS WITH LSD PROJECT (LABRINTH, SIA, DIPLO)
Having reached over one billion Spotify streams, eight Top 10 singles, including two #1s in the UK, Labrinth is back with a new single and accompanying video “Miracle” today via Syco Music/RCA Records. The song marks his first solo music since his platinum-selling album, Electronic Earth in 2012. 2019 marks a new adventure for Labrinth, as he prepares to release more solo music in the coming year. Labrinth scored HBO’s next big series, Euphoria, starring Zendaya and executive produced by Drake. More news on this to follow. His last project saw him form the supergroup ‘LSD’ in 2018 with Sia and Diplo, who released their debut album last April. Together, they put out 6 singles which includes hit tracks ‘Thunderclouds’ and ‘No New Friends’. He has collaborated with some of music’s biggest artists across different genres including Nicki Minaj, Eminem, The Weekend, Ed Sheeran, Stefflon Don and Giggs as well as boasting over 1 billion streams, and 20 million monthly Spotify Listeners.
‘Miracle’, fuses together big band instruments with tuneful synths and sees Labrinth explore his imagination and creativity. In perhaps one of his most meaningful songs to date – his lyrics recount the highs and lows of his musical career.
Translating his lyrics to the screen, the music video uses inspiring imagery, and symbolism to tell the story of a young Labrinth who sells his imagination for acceptance from the outside world. When he signs himself away, he becomes this miracle child covered with feathers and soars over those around him reaching the utmost success. In the process, however, his true self fades away and he loses who he is. The video reflects Labrinth’s journey in the music industry:
“I was working in LA for a while…Out there I spoke to artists and digested their experiences. It inspired me to create this story where a young kid sells his imagination to a businessman for success. It was based on the idea that a lot of artists, or anyone that has an imagination, come from a place of total innocence. Every idea you are creating is not about stats, not about money, not about vanity, it’s about realizing or fulfilling this idea.” Labrinth says, “It’s not like saying being successful is bad, it’s saying what success do you want for yourself instead of the one version of success that we’re all pressured into wanting.”
His first solo music of 2019 is just a taste of what is to come from Labrinth.
