Puma Blue announces his debut album and releases new single 'Velvet Leaves'
London singer-songwriter Puma Blue has released his latest single today, along with the announcement of his debut album. ‘In Praise of Shadows’ is set for release on January 29, 2021 via Blue Flowers Music.
New single 'Velvet Leaves' was released, along with music video directed by Harvey Pearson, a retelling of the myth of Orphedeus & Eurydice, inspired by John Cocteau's 1950 adaptation. Puma Blue wrote on Instagram of his new track:
"I wrote this song very quickly one day last year, but it took much longer to process what I was trying to say. 5 years ago, my sister was in a really bad place and one day we nearly lost her. By the grace of the universe she survived, and now words can’t communicate how proud I am of the strong, beautiful, wise woman she is. This song is just a reflection on that day, how much I love her, about how we came together as a family, about the veil between death and life and about the toxic masculinity that had a hold of me when I couldn’t or wouldn’t express myself at the time."
