All four Idolator editors share their thoughts on Madge's new visual.

LELAND is kicking off the Spring season with his new single, “Full-Time” — which we at Idolator are premiering today (April 13)! The tune serves as the follow-up to the singer’s “AWARE” debut last year, and it will instantly have your hips a’shaking!

Co-written by LELAND himself, Britten Newbill, and Chase Foster (with production by Foster and The Tailors), “Full-Time” is snappy mid-tempo that finds the singer’s bright vocals filled with falsettos that layered over a throwback-sounding synth-and-percussion rhythm. The tune is a spot-on transition as we enter the sunny months!

LELAND (whose real name is Brett McLaughlin) is currently writing with fellow artists Allie X and Troye Sivan for their upcoming projects and — fun fact — it was Sivan who designed the artwork for “Full-Time”. The singer/songwriter described his new single as “a driving-with-the-windows-down piece of pop nostalgia,” which we couldn’t agree more with.

Take a listen to “Full-Time” below, and let us know if you’re digging it in the comments!
