Swedish Pop Singer Léon
Releases Self-Titled Album and First Single 'Come Home to Me' on BMG
(New York, NY) - Following the release of her widely celebrated singles "You and I," "Baby
Don't Talk" and "Falling," Swedish artist Léon has released her highly-anticipated
self-titled debut album.
Incorporating a mix of tender,
heartfelt ballads and rousing up-tempos, every song on Léon's self-titled debut demonstrates
her knack for writing and recording unforgettable Pop songs. Obvious highlights include the album's lead track, "Lost
Time," which starts off with the dramatic sounds of an organ before her signature raspy vocal cuts in. Another standout,
"Hope Is A Heartache" features poignant lyrics, with her soaring falsetto reaching new heights, while "Come
Home To Me," an emotionally charged piano ballad hits the listener right in the heart. "Better In The Dark,"
meanwhile marries Léon's signature ear-worm melodies with glistening modern production. This
body of work brings her full circle. For the first time, she gets to call all of the shots.
With effortless style
equally reverent of dreamy sixties Laurel Canyon and modern day Europe, Swedish songstress Léon
projects the kind of understated confidence a non-chatty Quentin Tarantino character might have.
The first song
from the album was released last fall titled "Baby Don't Talk," arriving on the official three year anniversary
of her debut single, "Tired of Talking." The follow-up track was "Falling," where her signature smoky
vocals float above a bed of scintillating synths and foot-stomping percussion. Leon sings about forbidden love, torn between
what feels good and what she knows is right. The gloriously up-tempo "You And I" followed last month, serving as
an emotional call to the dancefloor.
This spring, Léon will bring her body
of work to life when she hits the road for the ‘You and I World Tour - Part 1,' presented by Ones to Watch, which starts
in Europe on March 30, 2019. For a full list of tour dates see below or visit www.itsleonmusic.com.
