Introducing exciting new British talent, London singer and songwriter Pluto Lèbon, with her brand new single ‘Unknown’, which comes with a gripping and thought-provoking music video, as premiered via 1883 Magazine. Produced by Ezzrah(Skepta, JME, Terri Walker) and Ayobeatz (Wretch 32, Alexandra Burke, Chip, Wiley), ‘Unknown’ is taken from Pluto Lèbon’s forthcoming debut EP Atlantis, set for release this summer.
Directed by Ash Riley and TGD (Da Beatfreakz, Loick Essien, Rough Copy), the black and white visuals for ‘Unknown’, and the vastly deserted location the video is filmed in, create quite the dark and pensive backdrop, which brings the record and its emotions to life. Additional themes of death, religion, famine, and migration, also run through the music video, causing the viewer to further reflect on Pluto’s message.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Unknown’, Pluto Lèbon says, “I wrote this song from a place of real uncertainty, where I just wanted answers for things happening around me, but it can also mean different things for the listener. We’re all searching for our own truths and answers. Whatever the question is, I hope this song can spur listeners into actively seeking the answers we need”.
Expanding on her thoughts on the record, Pluto adds that, “what I wanted to do with ‘Unknown’ is challenge minds, mine included, to be more aware of things happening around the world. We certainly all have questions about our own issues, but if we can be more observant of the pain and struggles other people are facing, and be more empathetic, I think the world could be in a better place”.
