London Based singer-songwriter and professional Pianist Hugo Valentine returns with newest single ‘Rule the World’. This latest offering is a soulful pop ballad filled with rich, acoustic's and Valentine’s signature smooth, husky, and emotive vocals.
This plush, piano-led number ‘Rule the World’ is now the sixth release from the multi-
instrumentalist so far, and his third release of 2020. Following on from his last two singles ‘All I Want’; a soft and solemn love song and ‘My Friend’, a tender and emotionally flooded tribute. Both tracks have received a fantastic reception from fans and press alike, and have collectively amassed over 200,000 streams on Spotify alone.
“Rule the world is a song about a close friend of Hugo’s who has been suffering from addiction. It’s an appeal to him to fight to regain his love of life and to find joy in positive things. It is difficult to witness the desperation and destruction that addiction causes but in writing ‘Rule The World’ Hugo seeks to sum up both pain and hope, aiming to uplift the listener and bring light to the darkness.”
“...Often one finds a lot of comfort in reminiscing about happy times from the past, and this is an idea that the song explores. The notion of ‘together we can rule the world’ aims to fill the sufferer with the hope that he doesn’t have to do this alone, that others are there for him and that he can make it through this difficult part of his life with the help of those who love him. ‘Rule The World’ brings to light the isolation that often comes with addiction and seeks to remind people who suffer in this way that they are not alone.” - Hugo Valentine.
