With his debut album Shadows & Diamonds arriving June 23rd, Elijah Blake has liberated the project’s latest single, “Drop Dead Beautiful.” Backed by some guitar-driven production, Blake tries to salvage a friendship out of a once beautiful relationship that is coming to an end.
“‘Drop Dead Beautiful’ is about the death of an intimate relationship that was once alluring,’ Blake tells 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 hits iTunes on June 23rd.
