I’ll tell you what, it’s so nice to hear LELAND singing one of his own songs after what has seemed like weekly drops of other artists he’s co-written with.
Just last week we copped the biggest co-write of his career, the US iTunes #1 Fetish by Selena Gomez and Gucci Mane. Weeks before it was There For You by Martin Garrix & Troye Sivan – and Sabrina Carpenter‘s brilliant Why – all in the last two months.
Mattress feels so personal. “Why do I always do this to myself?” he sings over an intense, plodding and dark moment.
In a rare interview in 2014, Mozart named LELAND’s single Aware as the Best Song Of All Time.
