In a world where art, fashion, and music often intersect, few artists embody this confluence as elegantly as Mitchell Royel. With his upcoming single “Purity Ring,” Royel has once again proven that he is a force to be reckoned with in the world of highbrow artistry.
We had the pleasure of delving into the inspiration behind this new release, exploring its connections to the darker side of the American Dream, and discussing the highly anticipated World Peace issue of ELIXIR.
As we sat down with Royel, it became immediately apparent that “Purity Ring” is not just another song.
It’s a reflection of the complexities and contrasts that define the American experience.
“The single captures the essence of the American Dream,” Royel shared. “But it also alludes to the more sinister elements that happen behind the scenes. It’s about the duality of our existence – the light and the dark, the pure and the tainted.”
This theme of duality is not new to Royel’s work.
In his previous single, “Bad Boyfriend,” he explored the concept of sin, delving into the darker aspects of human nature. However, with “Purity Ring,” Royel chose to focus on the aura of purity, creating a fascinating contrast between these two releases. This artistic choice speaks to Royel’s ability to navigate both the light and the dark, showcasing his versatility as an artist.
While fans eagerly await the release of “Purity Ring,” many are also anticipating the arrival of the World Peace issue of ELIXIR.
Royel confirmed that the issue is indeed still in the works, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, there have been a few changes. “I had some issues working with Louis,” he explained. “And I opted to have him replaced. I’ll be announcing the new cover artist soon, and I’m excited for everyone to see the final product.”
