Olivia Dean Releases New Song “Be My Own Boyfriend”
- London-based singer-songwriter Olivia Dean announced her upcoming third EP “Growth” will be released this summer.
From the EP, she unveiled a new song “Be My Own Boyfriend” as the lead single.
“My last EP was very much a breakup EP, I was processing and feeling the feelings and then lockdown happened and I had to spend a lot of time by myself and look within, as we all did I feel, and I realised that I’m actually my own boyfriend. I don’t need someone else to complete me, I don’t need an other half, I’m whole, so I really wanted to write a song capturing that essence,” Olivia Dean explained of the song. “It’s a very societal thing that you’re always looking for your Prince Charming or that when you meet this person that you’ll be ‘whole’ or ‘successful’, like that’s the end goal. But I think the end goal is being happy by yourself, and if you do meet someone then it’s a really cute accessory – a cute addition to my life, but it’s not completing my life. It’s not the whole look, he’s just the bag!”
She continued, “I am so proud of ‘Be My Own Boyfriend’ and excited for everyone to hear what’s coming. This is the first single from a project I’m currently finishing called ‘Growth’. I think the past year has been a lot for everyone and I’ve learnt so much about myself and this project is a reflection of that journey.”
