Melbourne singer-songwriter Benjamin Trillado has shared a new single, entitled ‘Worth’. Listen to it below:
The single was produced by Jono Steer at The Perch Recording Studio and mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer Joe Carra of Crystal Mastering.
Per a press release, the single revolves around Trillado’s “empowering search for self-love and acceptance as a queer person”.
“This song is about understanding your own self-value and accepting that you deserve a place in this world,” said Trillado in a statement.
“As a queer person, I grew up struggling to come to terms with my sexuality and often resented myself for it. ‘Worth’ shares the struggles I faced in accepting myself and the empowerment that lies in embracing one’s identity. This song is a love letter to the LGBTQIA+ community and goes out to anyone who needs a reminder to love and accept themselves for who they truly are.”
To coincide with the single launch, Trillado also announced a handful of upcoming livestream dates. Find the full list of performances below.
‘Worth’ is Trillado’s third official single to date, following 2018’s ‘Glue’ and ‘First Kiss’, released last year.
