The lovely Ruston Kelly whose last album ‘Dying Star’ was one of our records of 2018 has returned with a new song ‘Brave’ which you can watch the video for below. Dedicated to his mum, it was shot last month at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on the night of his sold-out, headline debut performance. It also features footage and photos that highlight various periods of Kelly’s life from his childhood to the present. In conjunction with the song, Kelly has also released a new “Brave” t-shirt with a design featuring his handwritten lyrics, all proceeds from which will be donated to the charity MusiCares. You can order that here and, er, wear it around the house once it arrives.
