It's a reminder and statement that Guy Sebastian is just getting started and has so much to say and share with his fans.
"I can't wait for my fans to have a chance to hear my new single 'Before I Go'", explains Guy. "This was the very first song I wrote when I sat down to start this new album and it says so much about what I was feeling at the time. In fact, the vocal is still the demo vocal from the writing session because it just felt honest. I look forward to sharing 'Before I Go' with the world now and having fans get to understand that there is so much of this song that belongs to them."
