(April 19, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) –Enchanting tastemakers and fans alike, Morgan Saint shares a new song entitled “god bless our souls” today. Get it HERE via Epic Records.
Once again, the critically acclaimed pop extraterrestrial illuminates the boundlessness of her alternative alchemy. Morgan’s breathy delivery careens alongside stark piano keys as the track morphs from a minimalist ballad into a magnetic anthem punctuated by eighties-style synths. At the center, it emits lyrical provocations a la “Am I in love? Is it in my head? Did I fuck this up? Will I end up dead? God bless our souls!”
Stay tuned for the premiere of the music video very soon.
The song arrives just in time for the kickoff of her return to the road. Beginning tonight in Washington, D.C. at 9:30 Club, she supports LÉON on her 2019 You And I Touras direct support. The trek stops in major markets everywhere before concluding May 21 in Nashville, TN at The Basement East. Not to mention, it’s nearly half sold-out.
Check out the full itinerary below and pick up remaining tickets HERE before they’re gone.
Get ready for a massive 2019 from the chanteuse. God bless Morgan Saint…

With all her songs self-penned, she’s also crafted stunning videos that expand her creative canvas and vividly complement her music iterations as evidenced by her debut EP 17 HERO and follow-up ALIEN.

(April 18, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Brother Leo—the alter ego of GRAMMY® Award-nominated Swedish singer, songwriter, and producer Ola Svensson—unveils a new single entitled “Shine” today. Get it HERE via Epic Records.
Backed by bright piano, a metronomic beat, and lively horns, the track builds from breathy verses into a show-stopping falsetto-driven refrain on which he croons, “Wonder when it’s my day to shine?” He notably teamed up with GRAMMY® Award-nominated songwriter and producer Elof Loelv [Rihanna, Tove Lo] to co-write the tune.
About the transformative single, he had this to say, “‘Shine’is the first song I wrote for my upcoming album. In a way, it was also the birth of what would become Brother Leo. I was in a pretty dark place when this song came to life. The writing process out to be quite therapeutic and became a turning point for me, both personally and creatively. To some, this will probably just be another happy tune, and that’s more than fine by me—but for me, it’s something totally different.”
It’s also something of a self-fulling prophecy as he’ll no doubt shine brighter than ever throughout 2019 as he readies his first album for release soon!
Brother Leo remains on the cusp of an international breakthrough. The artist’s November 2018 single “Push Up” just crossed 1.5 million streams. Meanwhile, his Fatboy Slim-produced summer single “Strangers On An Island” clocked over 3.5 million streams and counting. Additionally, NME christened it “A gorgeous, laid-back slice of pop magic,” and Wonderland exclaimed, “You’ll be wanting to direct your attention to the surreal, but mesmerizing visuals for Brother Leo’s Strangers On An Island.”
Named after Svensson’s more confident and free childhood imaginary twin, Brother Leo officially made his worldwide debut in 2018. The dynamic nature of the music aligns with his rather unbelievable story. Long before his emergence as Brother Leo, mom forced her son born Ola to participate in boys’ choir and take piano lessons when all he “really cared about was football.”At only 17, he played professional soccer for former UEFA-cup team Trelleborgs FF. After singing during a school function, friends clamored for him to audition for Pop Idol. Despite his reluctance, he ended up landing a deal in his native Sweden as a result. Unlocking a quirky, clever, and catchy signature style, Ola achieved a string of number ones off the back of his Swedish debut before making his bones as an in-demand songwriter with cuts for gnash, Hailee Steinfeld, Akon, and more under his given name. He assumed the identity of Brother Leo in 2018 and began writing and recording with Mark Ralph [Clean Bandit, Years & Years, Jax Jones], Coffee [Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber], Dan Grech [Lana Del Rey, Liam Gallagher, George Ezra], and more.

Since its debut on March 1, What A Time To Be Alive has consistently occupied a spot in the UK Top 5. Meanwhile, the album put up impressive numbers across the board. “Leave A Light On” has tallied 410 million-plus cumulative streams and 120 million views thus far and soared to #1 in 20 countries. The follow-up “Just You And I” surpassed 165 million streams and stands out as the #1 Radio Airplay Song in the UK.
