“Bridges Burnt Lessons Learnt (Betrayal)” is the debut single from We Are Sovereign. The single features Ryan Tuck O’Leary from Fit For A King.
It’s also born from vocalist Laura Russell’s own experiences of suffering for years with gender dysphoria, which resulted in a long battle with mental health. Now, after a life changing operation to feel comfortable within her own skin, Laura brings her experience to life in their debut single.
Discussing the motivation behind the track, she states. “Being betrayed is one of the most painful human emotions we can encounter, and it can absolutely destroy you as a human being. I have had to deal with my operation and finding myself again. I also had to rebuild and repair after being deeply betrayed by somebody I loved and trusted at the time.”
