Our track of the week -‘I’ll be Here”- comes from Liverpool singer songwriter Kris James. It is a perfect pop earworm that refuses to leave your mind and beckons repeat listens. The main message is ‘It’s Ok, not to be Ok’, and joins a list of recent songs released by James musical peers on the pop circuit, which tackles mental health issues through the form of song.
If you follow him over on Twitter, you will come across daily anecdotes to get you through tough times also, via words of wisdom and positive affirmations whilst also keeping up with what’s going on with Kris.
“After suffering from depression and mental health in the past and worrying about what people may think, I decided to write the track. We need to talk more openly about how we feel and let anyone going through it know we are here for them”
To accompany the song, James took to screen to shoot a cinematic music video to accompany the track which will bring viewers close to Kris and bring the track to life. After achieving international success as former lead singer of the boyband The Scheme, Kris solo offerings are well worth checking out.
