British global award-winning musician, songwriter, and entrepreneur Shayan Italia has released Armour of Love, the follow-up to his debut single, Warriors, which has attracted 8million plus YouTube views.
The new track is similarly earnest and direct, utilising a semi-ballad template to underscore a simplistic but no doubt resonating theme. As Shayan Italia says about the latest release, ‘My mother and father loved each other till their last dying breaths, which I sadly had to witness being only a boy.
They were each other’s Armour Of Love. Your ARMOUR OF LOVE is someone who sacrifices for you long-term, who uplifts you in your darkest hour and makes you believe you can achieve anything when there is no belief in the air at all. The song releases 16 Nov, my late Mum’s birthday, and features a truly magnificent team of 135 Grammy, Emmy and Oscar-winning personnel coming together to create something truly special.’
Aside from his musical prowess, Shayan is also a philanthropist and has helped raise USD 250 million in light of Cancer Research and Multiple Sclerosis in memory of his parents. In 2018 Shayan was crowned Global Indian of the Year for his outstanding contribution to India. His version of the Indian National Anthem, an ode to his late Mum, stands as the most viewed national anthem online.
Shayan is also a Zoroastrian, like the late Freddie Mercury of Queen, a philanthropic, benevolent minority community worldwide known for giving back to the people. The list of Shayan’s achievements is quite exhaustive—Global Indian Of The Year, International Poetry Contest Winner, Honorary Award Great American Song Contest Winner, VH1 International Song Contest Awardee, to name but a few.
Discovered by the British television host and journalist Sir David Frost, no less, Shayan’s ability to draw on his skills to create an accessible piece of grand pop-rock fare will undoubtedly endear him to the masses and very healthy streaming numbers.
