New Music: 08 February 2017

As the first single from his fifth album The Afterlove, Blunt appears to be moving away from his trademark sound and towards something more mature.

The 42-year-old wrote over 100 songs in the lead up to the new album, and said Love Me Better was hitting back at the lingering reaction to his 2004 hit You’re Beautiful.

‘I had a big hit. And then I had 12 years of aggression towards it. It was a strange experience,’ he told Time. 

‘[These are] quite harsh words to hear at the top of a song, but that’s because it was quite harsh to receive that kind of feedback on a song that was just played a lot.’

Eagle-eared listeners will also hear Blunt references his ‘wandering eye’ in the song’s lyrics too.

As for his supporters, the singer said he was a little ‘nervous’ about how people would take his change in direction.

‘I am a little nervous about that, because I don’t know how people will respond. I’ve done four albums with me on the guitar writing fairly sad—miserable even—songs,’ he said.

Julia Michaels - Issues
Julia Michaels helped shape the sound of 2015/2016 as much as anyone with multiple credits on Selena Gomez’s Revival, Justin Bieber’s Purpose and Britney Spears’ Glory. The 23-year-old is now hoping to make the leap from songwriter to pop star with debut single “Issues,” which arrives today (January 13) via Republic. And she’s off to a flying start. Produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate, the deceptively upbeat bop that falls somewhere between “Good For You” and Gwen Stefani’s “Misery.” Which is obviously a very good thing.

“I’m jealous, I’m overzealous,” the budding diva begins the song. “When I’m down, I get real down.” Just when you think you’re in for a break-up anthem, the “Carry Me” singer flips it around in the chorus. “Cause I got issues but you got ‘em too, so give ‘em all to me and I’ll give mine to you.” It can be hard for songwriters to carve out a unique voice when they step out on their own (after all, they are chameleons by trade), but it doesn’t look like that will be a problem for Julia.

Mark Haze - Better Than This
For more than 15 years, Mark has been working tirelessly on establishing himself as one of the best live performers and musical talents in the country. He has certainly come a very long way since starting his first band, 12th Avenue in 2001 and has since kept the momentum going and growing, bringing it back full circle to his next upcoming single, ‘Better Than This’. The song was written with his long-time friend and 12th Avenue band member Bjorn Faree symbolising that Mark has come a significantly long way since their early days. The single truly describes what many artists experience in the stages of their career, and as Mark notes “Throughout everything I’ve gone through and will continue to go through, I know that I am truly blessed to be able to do what I love to do and have always dreamed of doing every day.”; a sentiment that sits firmly in the hearts of every working musician nowadays.
