Los Angeles-based singer Alexander 23 on Friday released his new song "Brainstorm."

The new track comes after he teased its release last month. It also arrived just ahead of Global Mental Health Day on Saturday (Oct. 10), timing which is appropriate given the song is intended to help shine a light on mental illness and the will to help overcome life's obstacles.

"'Brainstorm' is about how difficult it can be to communicate how you feel when you’re in a really dark place," says Alexander. "Sometimes the words to describe how we feel simply don’t exist and this song is meant to keep you company in those moments."
