Lee Ryan Is Back! *SCREAM*

Lee Ryan Is Back! *SCREAM*

Lee… It’s this way to my house….

Lee Ryan, the guy whose face was splashed all over my teenage school books and bedroom walls is making his musical comeback with the first release in almost four years, ‘Secret Love.’ – and I think it’s about me.

For some, Lee Ryan, the former member of Blue with the honeyed vocal chords may have seemed to have lost his way; another boy band casualty, fallen from grace at the hands of the unforgiving pop industry.

In truth, Ryan has spent the last two years prolifically writing new material with a host of the world’s best pop producers. Equipped with honest lyrics, vibrant production and those sweet harmonies, Lee’s new music will finally reveal his sometimes misunderstood personality, and surprise even the most ardent pop aficionado.

Co-written by Ryan, together with pop supremo Johnny Douglas (George Michael, Kylie, Estelle) the single is the first release from Lee’s upcoming album of confessional, autobiographical pop magic. Peppered with electronic strobes, the up-tempo track is inspired by a fear of relationship breakdown and sets the tone for Ryan’s new found transparency. Lee says: “Secret Love is about a relationship you can see going wrong and you are scared that the person will become a secret love, a person you adore but who you can no longer make a life with.” This is indeed therapy to a pulsating beat.

“The album is about me. It’s about my journey, where I am today, where I’ve been and where I am now. It’s very personal and all my experiences are in the album lyrically. I’ve exorcised some demons and I hope people understand me better after listening. I’m not taking myself too seriously though, I still want people to be able to dance to these songs, as well as relate to them.”

Secret Love is a perfect example of Lee’s determination to lay his soul bare, whilst keeping his toes firmly dipped in mainstream pop music. Due for release on May 3rd, the single will undoubtedly take the music industry by surprise. Listen without prejudice.

Is anyone else as excited as me? I think I love him. Again.
