A fast-rising name on the UK queer pop scene, Aaron Porter's new track shows his resilience and tenacity, detailing the strength it takes to be true to yourself. “I wrote 'Sorry' at a time when I refused to accept another apology from my ex,” says Porter, “a bunch of roses couldn't cut it by that point. Words without intent are literally just a bunch of meaningless letters. If you mean it, prove it.

“How many times can you be apologised to before the word 'sorry' starts to lose its meaning?”

Porter's courage and subsequent relief in the wake of a break-up are characterised by the track's rapturous synths and bouncy dancehall beat under his smooth R&B vocals. Produced by previous collaborator Tev’n (Lily Allen, SBTRKT) and with vocal production from Cameron Gower-Poole (Dua Lipa, RAYE, Mabel), the track is a dance floor staple in the making.

“Sorry” is out today, and you can catch him at Flat Iron Square for London Pride on 6 July. Find Aaron Porter on Instagram.
