Sim (32), disclosed that he was living with HIV in his newly released song ‘Hideous‘. His first solo album Hideous Bastard is scheduled to be released on September 9. “I imagine that might paint a picture of a dark, “woe is me” sounding album, but in recent years I’ve become a firm believer that the best antidote to these feelings can be bringing them to the surface and shedding some light on them,” said Sim. “I haven’t written the record to dwell, but rather to free myself of some of the shame and fear that I’ve felt for a long time.”Sim, spoke about the inspiration behind his new song and his HIV diagnosis at the age of 17. “Two thirds in, having a good idea of what the record was about, I realised I’d been circling around one of the things that has probably caused me the most fear and shame.
