Today DH favorite Sidney Riley releases “It’s Always Been You,” a touching love letter to his new wife Valerie.
Recorded in secret and played for the first time as a wedding day surprise, the romantic-minded ballad proves the new love is built to last. Taking inspiration from romantic standards like Elvis’ “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” and “Unchained Melody” by the Righteous Brothers, the tender keys of the piano set the mood before the soloist launches into an affectionate verse and hook, made extra sweet by his falsetto flashes.
Speaking on the track he says:
This song is about a person’s personal journey resulting in reaching the absolute limits of love, while describing what those limits look and feel like along the way. It describes what love and true human connection is fully capable of.
Fall in love with a listen.
