"Be Alright" is a song by Australian singer and songwriter Dean Lewis. The song was released in June 2018 as the lead single from Lewis' debut studio album, A Place We Knew.[1] It reached number one and was certified sextuple platinum in Australia.[2]

Lewis said: "'Be Alright' is actually written about a few different relationships, some were mine and some from friends, I took little bits and pieces from each experience and combined them into one song." He added: "For people worried about me cause the song's so sad – trust me I'm OK… the song is actually about hope and knowing that in the end things will work out, surrounding yourself with good people."[3] Lyrically, the song is about dealing with a breakup and the reality that you have to move on.

An acoustic single was released on 7 September 2018.[4]

At the ARIA Music Awards of 2018, "Be Alright" was nominated for four awards, winning the ARIA Award for Best Video.[5]

At the APRA Music Awards of 2019, the song was nominated for Pop Work of the Year.[6]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Be Alright" was shot in Mexico City and directed by Los Angeles-based, Australian director Jessie Hill and features Mexican actor Maria Evoli as Lewis' love interest. The video was released on 12 July 2018.[7]

Reception[edit]

Allison Gallagher from The Brag Magazine called the song "stunning" and "gut-wrenching", saying, "A frank and fairly candid meditation on romantic betrayal and moving past pain, Lewis delivers his lyrics above a relatively sparse, stripped back instrumentation. Punctuated with a swelling, hopeful chorus, 'Be Alright' is the kind of slow-burning balladry that's equal parts uplifting and devastating."[8] RJ Frometa from Vents Magazine said, "[Lewis] perfectly captures gut-wrenching heartbreak that comes with the hardships of a break-up. But while it deals candidly with anguish, the chorus swells with hope; a recognition that this pain is only temporary."[9] auspOp called the song "a cracker", adding that "Be Alright" "feels like a big, bold step up."[10]
