The song is the title track of the U.K. artist's upcoming debut EP, which is out in September. And the video is reflective of the project as a whole, inspired by the singer's life as a gay man who previously struggled with his loves and desires contrasted with hetero-normative culture, before ultimately finding self-acceptance.
"I had been depressed, broke, hating myself and drinking too much for too long," says Blond of the new song. "I'm a strong believer that life imitates art, so I wanted to write a song about the hard times but spin it to something positive—love bringing you back. Whether that's self-love, pure friendship or a romantic relationship."
