"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' forthcoming debut studio album.[1] It reached number one and was certified double 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]

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

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.[5]

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."[6] 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."[7] auspOp said called the song "a cracker" adding "Be Alright" "feels like a big, bold step up."[8]
