Fulton Lee has released his new track 'Be Somebody', the second cut from his debut, full-length, 12-song record, 'Sonny Boy', out later this year.
The track has a uniquely fresh sound and aesthetic that combined the foundations of vintage soul with the sweet, infectious pop melodies.
About the song, Fulton says:
‘"Be Somebody' is about breaking free from mental prisons of addiction and obsession. I used to have an unhealthy relationship with my art and career. My self worth and mental well being was so tied to the success or failure of my art that I was becoming unstable. One day I was up, another I was way down depending on how my music was doing. I found that this problem ultimately made me avoid working on my music, which made me fall behind on my goals, which started the vicious cycle over and compounded the whole thing... Lines like "I was made to be somebody" are meant to flip the phrase on its head, referring to "being somebody" not as being someone successful and powerful, but as being a human being free to live in peace and love people, not held prisoner to a never ending series of goals that make it impossible to simply enjoy the current state of life and be present with those around me."
