X-Factor winner and West End star Matt Cardle has released his raw and intimate new single “Purple Crayon.” The song will be featured in his upcoming studio album.
Cardle says, “Purple Crayon is song about my struggles with addiction to Valium and the escape I found through using it. The song’s emotions are intertwined with imagery from my favourite children’s book Harold and the Purple Crayon.”
Written, recorded, and produced entirely by Cardle in his own studio during lockdown, the new single shows a new approach to songwriting and a new musical direction for the former X Factor winner. “My previous albums have been about love and relationships, I’ve written enough about that! This time I wanted to write music that was raw and honest,” says Cardle.
