Irish songwriter, producer and artist Cian Ducrot bears his soul once again with his new single ‘Make Believe’ via Darkroom/Interscope, Polydor UK. In the song, Cian explores the challenges of loving someone who hasn’t been loved before. Cian’s brilliant songwriting is elevated in the new single with a chorus that will stay with the listener for days, all capped with a brilliant guitar solo — it is a classic song that listeners will find timeless and persistently on repeat.

Speaking about the fifth single coming from his upcoming EP, Cian says “The inspiration for ‘Make Believe’ struck me over sushi in London one night. I rushed straight to my studio and started getting the inspiration for a song about falling in love with someone who hasn’t been loved before. I ‘voice noted’ all my ideas and chords and I knew what I had was special. I wrote the second verse a few days later and finished it on a scooter ride through London and while making a sandwich. Safe to say it was the longest it’s taken me to make a sandwich”
