In readiness for the release of a new album in October, Dean Ray has delivered his new single from it, ‘The Winnings’.
You’ll no doubt remember Dean from his stint on ‘The X Factor’ (the season won by Marlisa). You may also remember him from his top five single ‘Coming Back’ or his top five self-titled album.
Or you may recall we named his breathtakingly beautiful single ‘IOU (A Heartache)’ our No.8 Pop Single of 2015 (HERE).
Currently dividing his time between LA and home, Dean has been working on material for his sophomore LP ‘The Messenger’. And it would appear that ‘The Winnings’ holds special meaning.
“Time is relentless … It simply never stops. I came to realise this in a hotel room on sunset in Hollywood,” he reveals in a statement.
“It was a warm Californian winter’s night and I had just heard that an old flame was engaged to be married. Any hope I may have had to reignite the flame was quite rapidly extinguished. It was in this moment ‘The Winnings’ was born.”
