Bruno Major ruminates on the concept of kindred spirits within ‘The Most Beautiful Thing’, a track which came to realisation after a co-writing session with modern-day pop luminary and acclaimed producer FINNEAS.
The special partnership was formed after FINNEAS reached out to Bruno, counting himself a personal fan of Bruno’s music alongside his sister Billie Eilish. The track emerges as the latest taste from Bruno Major’s forthcoming second record TO LET A GOOD THING DIE, a beautifully crafted tapestry of stories interwoven with timeless narratives of human relationships, love and heartbreak, and existential musings, out June 5 via AWAL.

The news was first teased to fans via Bruno’s instagram, where he uploaded a small clip of himself and FINNEAS workshopping the track, watch here.
I wrote “The Most Beautiful Thing” with FINNEAS in his living room in LA. We sat and talked for a few hours about everything and nothing ~ writing the song took considerably less time than our conversation. The song’s big idea is one that has always fascinated me. The concept of a ‘soul mate’ has always seemed far fetched, when that person could easily be born on the other side of the world or in a different time, and the chances of meeting them so slim. Is true love really circumstance and compatibility? “The Most Beautiful Thing” is a love letter to the soul mate I’ve never met.”Bruno Major
The single follows a number of initiatives which Bruno has engaged in to connect with his fans and help spread positivity and solidarity in this time. This includes a series of YouTube Live sessions, streaming in place of his postponed global touring plans to raise direct funds for the WHO’S COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. His live performances have so far been streamed for the timezones of London, Australia, New Zealand and Paris, and viewed by a total of 70,000 fans across the globe, with one final session scheduled for North America on May 7.
Bruno also launched a special WhatsApp group to connect fans directly, which has already amassed over 1700 sign-ups.
