Little Hurt – the new solo endeavor from the critically acclaimed alt-pop singer and songwriter Colin Dieden – has released new track “It’s Ok Not To Be Ok” available now on all digital streaming platforms via Another Century, a division of The Century Family Inc. The release is also accompanied by the song’s official music video.
Watch the Nick Slatkin-directed video now bellow and listen to the Ruffian (Selena Gomez, Zedd, Kygo)-produced single co-written by Little Hurt alongside fellow alt-rockers Cameron Walker-Wright – lead singer of the rising trio TWIN XL – and Jordan Wizigreuter – frontman of The Ready Set. “It’s Ok Not To Be Ok” is the latest track off Little Hurt’s forthcoming debut solo EP, which is expected early next year.
For this release, Little Hurt has teamed up with the mental health organization Hope For The Day, which achieves proactive suicide prevention through outreach and mental health education. The esteemed non-profit organization and singer-songwriter urge you to know that despite the things you’ve been through, it’s okay not to be okay.
On the meaning behind his new single, Little Hurt shares, “I wrote ‘It’s Ok Not To Be Ok’ as a reminder to take it easy on myself and to recognize that not every moment is going to be easy, and not every day is going to be great. I’ve learned that it’s important to acknowledge and accept that instead of constantly being at war with yourself.”
Formerly a member of the internationally successful indie-alt-rock band The Mowgli’s for nearly a decade, Dieden inked a solo recording contract earlier this year with Another Century and released his infectious debut solo single “Good As It Gets” in September, which premiered on Billboard and was hailed by Entertainment Weekly as “a remarkable debut.”
