Now is the time to feel inspired. Manchester artist Scott Magnus released his second single, ‘The Phoenix‘ on July 16, a song that embodies Magnus’ latest juncture in life. The hyper-pop-trap single touches on his ability to rise from the ashes even after being torn down when facing life’s battles, and feeling a blissful sense of freedom in escaping the dark times.
Magnus is an outspoken supporter of people with disabilities, particularly those with learning difficulties, because he himself has ADHD, Autism and Dyspraxia. Scott turns the experiences he encounters as someone with disabilities into music that can heal, embolden and inspire anyone facing difficult obstacles. It is his mission to help people overcome their challenges as he does.
Like a phoenix rising from the flames, the aptly named new single ‘The Phoenix’ was written after Scott decided to move on from a job that wasn’t aligned with him as a neurodivergent person. With a newfound sense of excitement and experience under his belt, the songwriter shares, “I emerged from the old job a new and better man. My discipline had been forged in a fire of adversity and I felt like London had so much opportunity to offer me and I was ready to make the most of it! I didn’t stop making mistakes as they are part of having learning difficulties and being human for that matter, but this song was an expression of my positive attitude upon making mistakes and receiving criticism.”
‘The Phoenix’ follows his debut single ‘Diamond In The Rough‘, both of which are off of the upcoming six-track EP “Comeback Stronger”. The EP chronicles ‘The Phoenix’ like transformation and resilience required to come back from a fall, into a better version of yourself.
