After a wildly prolific 2023, BANNERS has announced that he will be releasing his new album, All Back to Mine, on April 19th via Nettwerk. Pre-orders for the album can be found here.

Additionally, BANNERS — aka Michael Nelson — has released a mesmerizing new single, “Perfectly Broken (Duet Version),” which features the soulful voice of Lily Meola. Offering a refreshing take on the effects of self-image and societal expectations in media, the track encourages listeners to embrace their imperfections, recognizing that’s what makes us unique.

With Lily Meola lending her enchanting vocals to the duet, the song takes on a new dimension, creating a harmonious blend of voices. “I love Lily’s vocals on ‘Perfectly Broken,” raves BANNERS. “It’s a song about two halves coming together to create one beautiful thing and that’s what she’s done. I didn’t know the song needed it until I heard her voice but now I think ‘Perfectly Broken’ would feel a little lost without her. She’s brought a beautiful, raw emotion that adds a whole new layer of meaning. I love the new dimension she’s brought to it. I was already really proud of ‘Perfectly Broken’ and now I love it even more.”

“BANNERS is such a wonderful artist, so getting to sing on one of his songs was very exciting for me. This one in particular feels like it belongs in a movie. It’s so cinematic and his voice is just the crème de la crème,” adds Lily.
