cln RELEASES "BREATHE" ON SKRILLEX'S NEST IMPRINT

The Indie/Electronic Single Follows the 21-Year-Old Musician's Recent Work with the Queensland Ballet
"'Breathe' is a song inspired and conjured in the late-night quiet, and it captures that heavy tranquility in its simple, straightforward chords." -- Billboard

Callan Alexander, known to the music world as cln, has released his new single, "Breathe," via Skrillex's digital imprint, NEST, out today as a free download and available on all streaming services. The record - written, produced, and sung by Callan - is the first release from cln in 2017, as the Brisbane-based artist spent the latter part of 2016 composing a diverse collection of electronic music alongside Australian singer/songwriter Katie Noonan and renowned choreographer Amy Hollingsworth for a total of six sold-out performances featuring the Queensland Ballet.

"Breathe" is melodic and contemporary yet raw and emotional, and its depth is underlined by cln's own heartfelt vocals, which he manipulates in near-James Blake fashion. Bright arpeggios awaken those sleepy vocal harmonies - attributes that become clear when understanding Callan's approach to this song:

"I mostly make music really late at night. I think that's when my best ideas come out. When I'm fully alert, I tend to overanalyse things and get rid of my best ideas. The original idea for this song came about at around 3am, I think it was while I was preparing for my first US tour [last September]. I've tried my best not to over think this song. I wanted to keep the initial idea as close to its original state as possible. I suppose that way, the final product is more honest, taken straight from my sleep-deprived brain." - cln=
