Hugo Valentine’s new single “All I Want” is an impressive release highlighting his songwriting ability and appeal. The love ballad is some of the rising stars best work to date. Having played a number of festivals and shows with his band in 2019 including Camp Bestival, Chris Evans’ Carfest and headline shows at 229 The Venue and Paper Dress Vintage in London, Hugo is well prepared for a year packed full of all things music and is tipped for a truly successful year already, with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Check out a quote from Hugo Valentine on the context of the song below and under that stream “All I Want”!
“This is the closest thing to a love song I’ve written to date, but rather than being about any one person in particular, this song is simply a call to and for love. The lyrics harbor a slightly deeper meaning, nodding towards the loneliness among today’s youth as a result of isolation through technology and social media. Whilst we live in an age of heightened communication and technology, this ironically pushes people further apart on a human level as they tend to rely more and more on electronic connections and engagement rather than physical and human encounters – “I’m hoping for something real to find.” This often makes it harder to find ways of connecting in person. ‘All I Want’ is an understanding of this idea, which is manifested simply, as a very real and human desire for Love, in its truest form.” – Hugo Valentine
