"Be Honest" is the first taster of new music to be released via Paul Institute this year, and arrives after A. K. Paul's May release "Hungry Beat".

A. K. Paul says the new single is "about giving up control for a moment, allowing yourself to feel something beyond what you've known. It's a song about liking something you didn’t think you would like, feeling something you didn't think you would feel - and as you come to your senses being faced with the prospect you've only half lived..."

He adds of the relaunch of Paul Institute, "I'm really happy we're releasing new music with Paul Institute this summer. It's been a while coming and the last couple of years have been perilous at times for PI, particularly because of a legal fight that set us back. So besides it being sick music, to return with such a strong set of releases feels like a vindication of our rights as artists too."

All previous enrolees must re-enrol with Paul Institute due to new privacy laws.

A. K. Paul's "Be Honest" single is out now.
