This heart-forward track lays out the sacrifices that are so often necessary to make a relationship work.

Kings Elliot is a Swiss-born, London-based songwriter and performer who racked up over a million streams from all over the world on debut single "I’m Getting Tired Of Me." With early support from Billboard, and CLASH, along with some coveted Spotify and Apple playlist adds, she follows up with only her second release, a piano-driven pop ballad titled "Dancing Alone."

Kings has spent her life battling both borderline personality disorder and the constant threat of social anxiety. This pansexual-identifying artist uses her music as a way of exploring personal thoughts and fears, while this heart-forward track lays out the sacrifices that are so often necessary to make a relationship work. Kings feels that she has a responsibility to let others know that they are not alone.

Holding together any kind of relationship when you struggle with your mental health is immensely challenging – for you and the person involved. 'Dancing Alone' is me preparing someone for how hard it’s going to be, and walking them through every step of ‘the dance’ they will have to learn in order to get through the darkest days. — Kings Elliot

With this gorgeous track, Kings Elliot proves that strength and vulnerability can go hand in hand. "Dancing Alone" delivers a message of hope and positivity, as we understand together that the best things in life are worth fighting for.
