“I’ve loved songwriting for my whole life. I’m in a constant pursuit of bettering myself in that department. My entire world revolves around music. By writing these lyrics, I learned about myself,” he shared in a statement. “A lot of the songs are about now, but some of them are written from the perspective of a 17-year-old kid in the thick of the industry.”
“Those perspectives clash on this album. It was a challenge to create on my own for the first time rather than in the context of a group,” Luke continued. “I wrote out of need, because it’s what I love. After a couple of weeks, I thought, ‘What am I going to spend my time doing?’ I started exploring and doing my own production. It didn’t sound similar to the band, and I wanted to push myself. That was the genesis of it.”
Also out with new music is Gabi DeMartino, with her song “Not Today.” She also dropped the accompanying music video!
