TW: lyrics contain some references to suicidal ideation and drug abuse
A recurring theme on SOTB this week has been artists dealing with their mental health and being transparent about their struggles. As an artist who’s bipolar, I appreciate that. Marley Pitch’s “Broken” is another song of that variety. However, this one gets down and dirty with its discussions of mental health issues.
See, Marley is as honest as you can get about his depressive episodes, suicidal ideation and drug abuse without writing a full-fledged autobiography.
In the three minutes of this song, I feel like I got to know Marley as a human and learn of what makes him human. I also feel like I got to learn how he’s battled against these things and has accepted his flaws, becoming a stronger human being in the process. Some people don’t get to kick their habits, some people don’t get to live after having suicidal thoughts. He’s fortunate and he knows this and created this one to discuss it all. This is the first single from Marley’s upcoming Nocturne album. If the rest of the album’s like this? Yeah, he’s got an honest hit on his hands.
Check out the visuals above (I’m not going to give them away) and support dope music in all its forms.
