BRITISH ROCK BAND PLACEBO RETURN WITH NEW SINGLE “BEAUTIFUL JAMES”

Placebo make their defiant return to music with a new song titled “Beautiful James”. A song that seeks to normalize and celebrate non-heteronormative relationships in song.


Iconic Brit Rock band Placebo makes their return to music with the new single “Beautiful James”. The track is the band’s first new music in five years. Placebo also announced they’ve been in the studio with more new music on the way including an 8th studio album. The follow-up to the band’s 2013 album ‘Loud Like Love’. “Beautiful James” is a highly poignant track in a time when cutting through the mire by way of emotions and art can feel quite heavy. A band known for consistently venturing forward through sound, and in a statement. Yet at the core, the heart of Placebo will always remain. Sonically, they create dimension through the use of twinkling bright synths. Texture in thrashing guitars that cut through those synths. Frontman Brian Molko‘s distinctive voice carries the track to fully flesh out the emotion and storytelling. Molko says speaking of the song; “Beautiful Jamesis not a polemic or even a conversation. It is a statement – one that is as clear and bold as they have ever made.
