According to Daily Mail, Luke celebrated his achievement by acknowledging his supporters through social media. "Thank you to my friends, family, and to my entire team for making this possible and being patient while I changed my mind a million times," tweeted the artist.
Hemmings tackled his struggle with his fame and connecting it to his poor mental health. The singer admitted how he started battling it out with himself since becoming a public figure at a young age.
"The whole album basically revolves around trying to decipher the last ten years and all the things that are put on the back burner," the singer explained.
