Though she has often kept her listeners at a distance, Le Bon reveals more of herself than ever before on Reward, holding a mirror to her struggles and showing a vulnerability that hasn’t been this apparent before. The sadness imbued within Daylight Matters precedes the nostalgic yearning of Home To You to form a devastating couplet; similarly, Sad Nudes and The Light feature some of Le Bon’s most direct lyrics to date. The album is yet another enigmatic and beguiling release in Le Bon’s esteemed career, one that is unforgettably tender and delicately bittersweet.
Reward is out May 24 via Mexican Summer.
