On April 21st, award winning singer/songwriter John Galea released his latest single “Don’t Wanna Die” featuring rapper Ironik, about being addicted to a love that isn’t right for you & you find it hard to let go of. The release follows the success of Galea’s 5 Independent EP’s starting with The Scrapbook EP (2012), Under Attack (2013), Notes From My Piano (2014) and ‘Missing Pages’ (2016) which featured single ‘When You Truly Love Someone’ which hit Top 10 in the Commercial Charts in 2017, which featured Celebrity Gemma Oaten in the music video. John followed up that success with his Christmas EP Christmas Round The Piano (2018), scoring a Top 30 iTunes Charting track in 2019 with his Christmas song “A Simple Christmas”. Galea followed up that success with his hit single “Hero Within You” featuring Guildhall Opera Singing Sensation Hannah Long. Last week Galea released the acoustic audio for “Don’t Wanna Die” and today sees the premiere of the acoustic music video for the track. Regarding the live piano version of the track, Galea says:
“Writing the song has been very therapeutic for me as it was based on a true relationship I had and so stripping the song back really shows the meaning of the track.'”
