Award-winning Liverpool pop crooner BANNERS, aka Michael Nelson, releases his new single “Tell You I Love You” about the undeniable urge to profess one’s love. Listen to the energetic, feel-good love song, out now via Nettwerk and available on all streaming platforms HERE.
BANNERS states about “Tell You I Love You,” “I suppose some songs are the culmination of years of thinking about the world and growing as a person, declarations of the things that are fundamentally important to you and how you’d like to be remembered or judged over the years. Some are expressions of how you felt in a single moment, right then and there. That’s what this song is. That moment you see that person for the first time, and everything explodes, and you have to tell them you love them. Maybe you won’t even feel like this tomorrow but who really cares? All the best things happen in the moment and if you don’t try then you’ll never know.”
“Tell You I Love You” follows BANNERS latest EP I Wish I Was Flawless, I’m Not, which came out this past January to rave reviews and cemented the next bold step within his glittering career to date. Listen to the heartfelt album, born from his own personal experiences, HERE.
Liverpool based award-winning singer-songwriter Michael Nelson, aka BANNERS, was seven when he started his “musical apprenticeship.” He sang every day after school in one of the UK’s most well-known cathedrals but it was a chance trip with his producer father to a studio in Toronto that proved life-changing for the musician. Shortly after, a demo CD he made found its way to Grammy-nominated producer Stephen Kozmeniuk. His first single shot straight to number one on the alternative radio charts in Canada, garnering 10 million Spotify streams overnight and an invite to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! BANNERS quickly became a household name in North America and Canada, with a viral TikTok moment for his song “Someone To You” earning over 1.5 billion streams. The song went Platinum and Gold in multiple countries and led to an appearance on American Idol. With his most recent EP, I Wish I Was Flawless, I’m Not and new music out later this year, Michael says he’s drawn on his own personal experience of the last few years. Many of the songs focus on the things that matter the most when times are tough – like close friends, family and love.
BANNERS is currently on his UK headline tour, the Perfectly Broken tour, hitting major cities across the country, for more information on the remaining tour dates and to purchase tickets, visit BANNERS’ website HERE.
