Hey guys! It's Tuesday night here in LA and I leave for Amsterdam tomorrow. I haven't been home in about 4 months and it's been so awesome.... and not awesome all at once haha. The road and home are both awesome.
I've been writing all week here with some really cool people and i'm excited for you to hear some of the new stuff. FOR NOW I just released a song, "What You Want To", that premiered on PrettyLittleLiars last week. It's a really simple song but one that I totally dig, and it's incredibly new. I wrote it in Nashville with Jon Howard and Zac Farro just before leaving town to tour Europe.
We definitely had a vibe in the room that day for the song, I'd just finished watching the show "Flaked" and the main character in that show and his story had a lot to do with my mindset for the song. I kinda had this character's choices and things in my mind and we came up with What You Want To. A song about realizing that people, for worse or better, sometimes don't change. We recorded the song that day and Zac brought a Melodion or Melodica... I have tried to remember the name of this synth keyboard thing he had and I googled too but I cannot find it anywhere.. but he had a synth and I thought it was funny that this random cool instrument he brought to the write ended up being a real noticeable piece of the recording. If you have a second you should definitely give a listen to Zac's new stuff HERE
I feel pretty lucky to have gotten so much love for that song recently from all of you and I really appreciate it! Keep a lookout for new shtuff and videos and general amazingness soon. Thanks for reading this :)
