OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

Friday 13 May 2022: Powerhouse entertainer Todrick Hall has released ‘Breath’ – a soulful ballad taken from his forthcoming 80s inspired album “Algorhythm”. Listen here.
Inspired by Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’, the skyscraper ballad delivers Todrick’s most spine-tingling and emotional vocal performance yet, over stadium-sized rock drums and duelling electric guitars. Co-written by Todrick with producer Jeeve (who has worked with Giorgio Moroder and Nicole Scherzinger), ‘Breath’ is about an undying love in a toxic relationship.
Todrick said: “‘Breath’ is the most transparent and vulnerable I have ever been as a songwriter. Sometimes ‘the one that got away’ is someone who didn’t always bring out the best in you but also made you love like you didn’t know you could. That’s what this song is about. This is my favourite song I have ever written and sang, inspired by my favourite R&B ballads of the 80s.”
‘Breath’ – along with ‘Dance Forever’ (listen here) and ‘Pre-Madonna’ (watch video here) – is taken from Todrick’s forthcoming album “Algorhythm”, which will be released on 1 June via Frtyfve. Pre-save the album here.
Speaking of the album’s direction, Todrick said: “Algorhythm is an 80s inspired record that while still being on brand with my most popular work, it reveals a side of my voice I have never accessed in my previous music. I want this album to get back to good traditional music, no gimmicks, no smoke and mirrors, just great music, beats and rhythms. My goal is not to create a replica of 80s music but an evolution of my music infused with 80s nostalgic instrumentation.”
Renowned for his charismatic and high-energy performances, Todrick is a multi-disciplined modern-day entertainer and recording artist with over 800 million YouTube views to his name. He has starred in a selection of Broadway smashes, collaborated with Beyoncé, and co-executive produced the award-winning music video for Taylor Swift’s LGBTQ+ anthem ‘You Need To Calm Down’.
