Hasley - Colors
Colors" was written by Halsey and Dylan Bauld, and produced by Dylan William. Halsey expressed to Complex magazine:
"Blue is just my creative color. It's like so many things at once. It's electric, and it's bright, but it's also calm. It's also ethereal. Blue is just an otherworldly color to me. Blue is the sky. Blue is the sea. Blue for me represents the unexplored territory."
On January 21, 2016, Halsey revealed the single's artwork via Twitter. The art had been painted on the side of a building located at the intersection of Franklin Street and Meserole Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The picture features a black human silhouette standing in front of a dark green background. Lilac paint splashes around the head of the figure, which is a reference to the song's bridge. Upon it's release, MTV's contributor Madeline Roth compared the reveal to the advertising campaign preceding Justin Bieber's album Purpose.
Charlie Puth - One Call Away
The sweet song from the 23-year-old singer is the latest jam off his upcoming album Nine Track Mind.
“I’m only one call away, I’ll be there to save the day. Superman’s got nothing on me,” Charlie sings on the track.
He took the chance to thank his fans for their positive response on his Twitter saying, “thank you for all the love on ‘one call away’ right out of the gate. you guys are mad cool posting pics on instagram about it.”
Charlie‘s debut album Nine Track Mind, which will include “One Call Away,” “Marvin Gaye” and 11 other songs
The Lumineers - Ophelia
“Ophelia” is a “vague reference to people falling in love with fame,” said Wesley Schultz, guitarist and frontman of the trio, in a recent Entertainment Weekly interview. The video for the first single shows the band performing at a concert where we can see Schultz stay in front of the stage singing, while his other “self” goes out to dance in puddles of water and rain. All this while we hear a very sleek and smooth rhythm that combines the piano and tambourine with Schultz’s voice.
Daughtry - Torches
Daughtry will ignite fans once again with a new track, "Torches," premiering exclusively through Billboard.
The song, co-written with Dave Bassett (Elle King, Rachel Platten, Shinedown), is one of two new songs included on the band's first greatest hits record entitled It’s Not Over…The Hits So Far via 19 Recordings/RCA Records. The record is available for pre-order Jan. 29. A second bonus disc entitled Acoustic Live – 2015 will also be available for pre-order at Walmart.com on Jan. 29.
"Torches" addresses negativity in the world, and imagines a solution that will spread kindness like fire.
