Despite the warmth Brother Leo presents in his voice, Hallelujah is the carrier of a hard message to stomach: some things just can’t be fixed, no matter how badly you want them to be. Though it is a song about struggle, Brother Leo finds a way to bring hopefulness to the instrumentation. You can feel the deeply personal emotions that went into the lyrics, particularly during the chorus where his voice soars. This track also benefits from backing vocals done with the London Community Gospel Choir, adding another level of thought and sonic completeness. The greyscale visual elaborates on the feelings captured within the words and lyrics of Hallelujah. By including characters meant to represent family members and nostalgia, Brother Leo conveys the importance of looking to your roots in difficult times to help you face today’s challenges.

On the music video for Hallelujah, Brother Leo commented:

Me and Sasha wanted to create a dark and restrained visual for Hallelujah, that in a symbolic way expressed the struggle in trying to make peace with the painful fact that certain things just can’t be fixed, no matter how hard you try.
