Billy Porter releases runway-ready strut, Fashion, from forthcoming album, The Black Mona Lisa

Grammy, Emmy, and two time Tony Award winner Billy Porter has released his new single Fashion today via Republic Records/Island UK – the third offering from his forthcoming album, The Black Mona Lisa, due out this autumn.

With a runway-ready strut, Fashion is a clever nod to Porter being a fashion powerhouse, but it ultimately delivers the more important message that love, hope, and joy are always in fashion.

“You know I can turn a lewk, honey, but this song is not actually about fashion.” Billy Porter says about the new single, “It’s about trusting in the vision for your life, no matter what anyone else says. The things that are timeless – love, joy, peace – those are the things that are always in fashion.”

Fashion lands in the wake of the buzzing single Baby Was A Dancer, which is in regular rotation on BBC Radio 2 and Gaydio.
