Labrinth is officially back! We LOVE his new music video for Let It Be, the lead single from his long-awaited second studio album. There’s something special about this track, we can’t get it out of our minds!

The British singer/producer has been quiet since his Nº1 collaboration with Emeli Sande, Beneath Your Beautiful, back in 2012. It seems that he has decided to embrace his more experimental side for his return, with more soulful sounds.
“When I was making this song I was influenced by Electric Light Orchestra, Nina Simone, James Brown and John Barry. Basically, I wanted to go gospel and soul and mix it with rock and electronic production. I know it’s a lot to ask, and I hope people get it.” Labrinth told OfficialCharts.com
The music video features a constantly moving camera as it tracks different scenes in Labrinth’s journey of creating his second album. We see him writing lyrics, getting frustrated in record company meetings, not doing the washing up, playing drums, being interviewed on a chat show – all at the same time, very cool.
We will have to wait for early 2015 for his album, but Let It Be will be officially released on September 28. This second album is the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Electronic Earth’.
