Furthermore, it serves as a resounding testament to her undeniable talent and remarkable versatility in the genre.
Talking about the song, Megan said "Light of the moon is probably one of my most honest songs. It’s dedicated to those people in the early part of your journey who want you fail. Those people who are jealous of your achievements. People who only see as far as the perimeters of their home town. There’s a big wide world out there with plenty of room for everyone to grow and find success. And this song is about paying your haters no attention because you’re already out there in the big wide world finding your own path. I’m so excited to finally share this long awaited single. Despite my growth as a person my dreams have never changed and this song is about chasing them!"
Megan and her Tour co-headliner Tom Wright have been friends for many years. They have written and recorded music together and after being regularly billed on the same UK Festivals, they realised that their indivIdual sounds not only complimented each other but that they shared many of the same fans.
