Martin Luke Brown is back with new music –and it’s his most personal to date. The Leicester-born artist has shared 65 Roses, a moving tribute to his ex-girlfriend, who passed away after suffering from cystic fibrosis.

Speaking on the song, MLB said: “My favourite songs have always been the most raw & honest ones. I know at times that I’ve been scared of being too much of either for fear of becoming vulnerable or lame or something, I dunno.

Anyway, this is a sad song, but sad songs aren’t so sad when others find comfort in them. This is 65 Roses. For Emma. ” 

65 Roses is a hauntingly beautiful take on love, loss and tragedy, featuring MLB’s delicate falsetto with only a piano to accompany. It’s insular to the extent that you could question the appropriateness of listening, with his voice seemingly on the edge of cracking with each haunting note. It’s a supremely personal piece of songwriting.

The artist has teamed up with a number of Cystic Fibrosis charities for the release in a hope to build awareness on the condition. It’s a gorgeous piece of music that comes from a place of raw and unadulterated feeling.
