Elles Bailey Releases New Single ‘Ballad Of A Broken Dream’

28th June 2024 0 By Jon Deaux

Ahead of her debut performance at Glastonbury this weekend, Elles Bailey has released a new single ‘Ballad Of A Broken Dream,’ the latest single from her forthcoming album Beneath The Neon Glow, which comes August 9th on Cooking Vinyl Records.
A punchy, rock’n blues baller,‘Ballad Of A Broken Dream’ looks at the struggles of being a musician. “There is no denying the link between musicians and mental health and the toil that this chosen path can take on a creative,” Elles says of the single. “The track follows the story of a tortured artist who, though undeniably exceedingly talented, has ended his career playing dive bars where no one knows his name. This song is a very personal song to me however tragically it’s the story of so many incredible talents who struggle with their mental health.” Listen to ‘Ballad Of A Broken Dream’ HERE

Beneath The Neon Glow sees Elles intertwine British roots, Americana and blues across ten powerfully, uplifting tracks. Produced by Dan Weller (Enter Shikari) and recorded with Elles’ exceptional and trusted live band, the album is an exploration of love’s myriad forms. Through lyrically vulnerable and brutally honest songwriting, Elles delves into the depths of heartbreak, the resilience of friendship, and the enduring power of love that spans a lifetime. From the fleeting moments to the love that withstands the test of time, she fearlessly navigates through the spectrum of human emotion, offering listeners an intimate glimpse into her journey.
 “I might be new to some people, but I have been around for quite a long while. I’m not here for a flash-in-the-pan moment. I want a long-term career in music. I love what I do. I love that I get to take it around the world. So if I can continue to do that, and just play to larger audiences and continue to grow, that’s exactly what I’ll do.”
Elles and her A-list band will be taking her new album on the road for a run of dates in the Autumn of 2024, including a show at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on November 2nd. With a jam-packed festival season in the UK and Europe over the summer, playing the likes of Glastonbury, Cropredy, HebCelt, and Beautiful Days, Elles has also just announced a UK In-Store tour to celebrate the album’s release in August.
