Bruno Major Releases New Single And Visual "A Strange Kind of Beautiful"

Bruno Major has unveiled his latest single “A Strange Kind of Beautiful”. The song is featured on his upcoming album 'Columbo' out July 21 via Harbour Artists & Music / AWAL Recordings.

“A Strange Kind of Beautiful” opens with a glittering piano instrumental and a Bach-style fugue, as Bruno toys with the idea of the simultaneous beauty and tragedy in love. He illustrates the travesty that a bond shared by two people can’t adequately be expressed to or understood by others, but also acknowledges that that is what makes it uniquely beautiful and special. Animated entirely in black and white and taking place in one continuous shot, the accompanying music video allows listeners to dive head-first into the beautiful lyrics and melody of “A Strange Kind of Beautiful.”

“A Strange Kind of Beautiful” follows “Tell Her,” album title track “Columbo,” and his first new track in three years, “We Were Never Really Friends.” UPROXX raves, “‘Tell Her’ maintains the moody, jazz-influenced vibes from the pop tracks dropping lately. Major uses his words as wishes that he hopes an ex would hear, or as he notes, ‘taking the words from the sad songs instead.’” Clash praises “Columbo,” calling it “a soothing Spring-like hymn reminiscent of Paul Simon…a sun-drenched piece of melodic songwriting, while the video has a special guest star – Bruno’s 1978 Mercedes 380SL.” “We Were Never Really Friends” was released in May to critical acclaim. Billboard chronicles the track as “...a classic spoil-the-friendship jam that masquerades as a piano ballad before blooming into a lighters-up rock sing-along, complete with a stringy guitar solo.”

On July 21st, Bruno will unveil his newest album 'Columbo', the highly-anticipated follow up to 2020’s 'To Let a Good Thing Die'. The 12-track body of work weaves the autobiographical with the observational and stretches Bruno’s palette into new forms, yielding the most accomplished and “honest” expression of his music to date. 

Marking a triumphant return to the stage after his 2020 tour was cancelled due to COVID, Bruno will kick off an expansive headlining tour in Tokyo on August 8th. He will make his way through major cities in Southeast Asia, including his top-10 streaming countries like the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia, before heading to Denver, CO to start the North American leg of the tour on September 4th. Bruno Major's highly anticipated shows in Southeast Asia have generated overwhelming demand, resulting in some countries being sold out.
