Swedish Powerhouse LÉON Turns Late Night Calls To Your Ex Into Poetry in “Falling”


Who knew dancing on your own sounded so sweet? Smoky indie-pop songstress LÉON revels in her newfound freedom but struggles with the hidden desire for an ex love in her newest single release "Falling." The infectious new single is taken from her forthcoming self-titled debut album, due out next year via her own LÉON Recordings imprint in partnership with BMG. "Falling" tells the all too familiar tale of knowing in your heart that a relationship is over, but needing the time to finally let go.

The Swedish singer's signature smoldering vocals float above a bed of scintillating synths and foot-stomping percussion guaranteed to have you dancing. "Falling" is about forbidden love, torn between what feels good and the right thing to do. The single was written by LÉON and produced by Norwegian songwriting and production duo, Electric, who have worked with dance pop standouts like Jess Glynne, Little Mix, and Jonas Blue.

LÉON is hard at work writing and creating her debut album, she offers a glimpse into what's to come with her highly anticipated debut.

"It's something I've had in my head forever, but didn't bring to life until now. This cycle is very colorful, different, and bright. I want people to listen and relate, if my music could be somebody's soundtrack, that'd be amazing."

"Falling" serves as the follow up to LÉON's triumphant return earlier this fall, with "Baby Don't Talk," which was released on the official three year anniversary of her debut single, "Tired Of Talking." "Baby Don't Talk" was hailed has being an "essential listen" by V Magazine and "pure pop delight" by Time Magazine. It's safe to say the addition of "Falling," will join the already impressive arsenal LÉON possesses. At the end of the day, the pop powerhouse just wants to make a meaningful connection with her music.
