London-based dream-pop artist Ilja Alexander has announced a new song release titled ‘Butterfly’ via Green Monk Records. ‘Butterfly‘ was produced by Curtis Richardson (Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Joss Stone), Adien Lewis (Taemin, SHINee, NCT Dream and BTS’ single, ‘Inner Child’ ) along with Alexander. His previous romantic single ‘I’ll Wait’ featured on Raudio who mentioned this about his previous single, “‘I’ll Wait’ is filled with hope and light. Alexander’s voice charms along with the romantic lyrical sentiments.”
Alexander seems more at peace with himself in this song. Alexander elaborates on what the song means to him: “People have always called me ‘zen’, but I recently discovered I was just emotionally disconnected. No one knew what was going on in my mind, neither did I. One day, while sitting in the park, a little butterfly flew towards me and landed in the grass next to me. I asked the butterfly if it knew what was going on in my mind, giving birth to this song. The butterfly guided me with my own metamorphosis to a new beginning.”
Alexander takes a more laidback approach with his production style on this song, he reveals to us another layer as to who he is as a human being and artist.
