Swiss-born, London-based artist Kings Elliot addresses the role of mental health in relationships in her new single “Dancing Alone.” As someone who has struggled with borderline personality disorder and anxiety, Kings projects the emotional trust and weight that goes on when you invite your partner to the most vulnerable corners of your mind. It’s a chill, laidback song where Kings Elliot’s silvery vocals paired with the flowing piano keys engender an intimate moment of pure honesty:

Speaking of the inspiration behind the track, the gal shared: “Holding together any kind of relationship when you struggle with your mental health is immensely challenging – for you and the person involved. ‘Dancing Alone’ is me preparing someone for how hard it’s going to be, and walking them through every step of ‘the dance’ they will have to learn in order to get through the darkest days.”
