Chilli Jesson’s opening gambit for 2022- and his second release from his upcoming new EP – is his heart-on-his-sleeve new single ‘Love is a Serious Mental Illness’. In acknowledgement of
the mental health epidemic confronting the younger generation, Chilli softens the edge of the subject matter by being completely self-aware and unashamedly honest; happily exposing his own vulnerabilities that lie at the core of the song. Launching alongside the brilliant Willem Olenski directed video featuring Jessica and Rupert from the band, ‘Love is a Serious Mental Illness’ is an instant Beegees-meets-Brianstorm pop
classic that functions similarly to his latest single ‘St. Vitamin’ which he released at the tail end of 2021. On the song he says: “I don’t want to undermine the audience, and especially younger fans. I want these songs to provoke. Titles like ‘Love Is A Serious Mental Illness’ are there to keep the conversation around mental health going.
