Valentine’s rich, piano-led number ‘Rule the World’ is now the sixth release from the multi-instrumentalist so far, and his third release of 2020. Following on from his last two singles ‘All I Want’; a soft and solemn love song and ‘My Friend’, a tender and emotionally flooded tribute.
‘Rule the World’ is the newest track in a string of releases from London based singer-songwriter and professional pianist Hugo Valentine. His latest offering is a cheery, yet equally pensive pop ballad filled with rich, acoustic instrumentalisation; beautifully enshrined in Valentine’s signature smooth, husky vocals.
“Rule the world is a song about a close friend of Hugo’s who has been suffering from addiction. It’s an appeal to him to fight to regain his love of life and to find joy in positive things. It is difficult to witness the desperation and destruction that addiction causes but in writing ‘Rule The World’ Hugo seeks to sum up both pain and hope, aiming to uplift the listener and bring light to the darkness.” – Hugo Valentine
