Billy Porter and Luke Evans have released a new collaborative single titled “Always Be My Man” from the motion picture film Our Son. The track is out now via Island Records UK/Republic Records.
“Always Be My Man” showcases the vocal talents of both Billy Porter and Luke Evans, which was performed by both at the film’s premiere at the 2023 Tribeca Festival. This song was written for the film, Our Son directed by Bill Oliver, and is featured on the soundtrack of the film. Check it out below.
In the film, Porter and Evans portray a gay married couple going through a heartbreaking divorce and a child custody battle that forces both of them to confront the changing reality of their love for each other and their son. “Our Son” was released in select U.S. theaters on December 8, and is available on demand in the U.S. and Canada.
“Always Be My Man” is produced by Grammy-winning musician Robert Glasper. Written by Billy Porter, Connor Reeves (Tina Turner, Joe Cocker), and Joe Killington (Dap Kings, James Smith), the song is primed to be a wedding anthem for years to come.
Last month, Billy Porter released his highly anticipated full-length album, Black Mona Lisa, which boasts the title track “Black Mona Lisa” and features fan-favorite singles “Baby Was A Dancer,” “Stranger Things,” “Fashion,” “Broke A Sweat,” and most recently “Children (What Time It Is)” featuring Lady Blackbird.
In November 2022, Luke Evans released his second album, A Song For You, which debuted in the top five on the UK charts. With the album title inspired by one of his favorite Donny Hathaway songs, it consists of original songs and covers carefully curated from Evans’ musical passions, talent, and transcendent collaborators. This was the follow-up to his debut studio album, At Last, released in 2019 and produced by Steve Anderson (Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys).
