Singer-songwriter KIAN is back with his second single of 2020, the soulful ‘Sunbeam’.
The track, out today (November 18), follows on from KIAN’s first track of the year, ‘Every Hour’. Like its predecessor, ‘Sunbeam’ leans into the 18-year-old’s R&B influences and foregrounds his smooth singing voice.
KIAN wrote ‘Sunbeam’ with Djeisan Suskov, who co-produced the track alongside BENEE collaborator, Josh Fountain. Listen to ‘Sunbeam’ below:
Per a press release, KIAN said the song “about the positive energy that you can see and feel within people close to you”.
“I feel like most people have at least one person like this in their life. The people who always make you feel supported, safe and warm, no matter what happens or where you are.
“When you feel that warmth and light from others it helps you to project your own positivity…your own Sunbeam.”
KIAN first garnered attention after winning triple j’s Unearthed High Competition in 2018 with a song he wrote at age 14.
Since then, he has racked up several million streams on his music and earned an ARIA nomination for his 2019 track ‘Waiting’. The song appeared on KIAN’s debut EP, ‘BLISS’, which hit shelves last year.
There is no word yet on whether ‘Sunbeam’ and ‘Every Hour’ will appear on a future body of work from the singer-songwriter.
