Singer-songwriter Elijah Blake is getting closer and closer to giving fans his long-awaited debut album Shadows & Diamonds, but he isn’t letting us wait until the release date to hear more of the project.
Releasing the studio version of the song “Drop Dead Beautiful” the talented vocalist sings about a love that wasn’t quite right and how it’s as good as dead to him now.
“‘Drop Dead Beautiful’ is about the death of an intimate relationship that was once alluring,” Elijah told Billboard. “I feel like we as people have been some what programmed to kill off every piece of emotion once a relationship has gone bad because that’s just how it’s portrayed in movies, shows etc.. But in this case, [the] concept was to lay the intimacy to rest and give birth to a beautiful friendship.”
Shadows & Diamonds is due out June 23. Take a listen to his latest release below:
