British singer Martin Luke Brown has shared an emotional new single "65 Roses," inspired by the death of his ex-girlfriend, who passed away following a battle with cystic fibrosis.

In releasing the track, Brown said he has previously "been scared" of being too raw or honest in his music. "This is a sad song, but sad songs aren’t so sad when others find comfort in them," he explained. "This is '65 Roses.' For Emma."

The beautiful new song is out now and can be heard below.
