(Columbia Records; New York, NY, January 27, 2017) Columbia Records singer/songwriter LÉON has unveiled a brand new song entitled “Sleep Deprived” today. The irresistible pop gem is available now via the above DSPs. “Sleep Deprived” follows “Liar” and “Think About You” as another sneak peek into what’s to come from the songstress’ debut album, set to be released this year via Columbia Records.
"’Sleep Deprived’ is a song I wrote years ago, so I'm really happy to finally share it with people,”shares LÉON. “To me It's kind of about that moment a relationship turns sour, and when you start to play the blame game.”
