Australian pop star Conrad Sewell has shared the official audio for his new single Who You Lovin which will is taken from his upcoming All I Know EP.
The Brisbane native scored a huge #1 hit in his homeland earlier this year when the heavyweight ballad Start Again topped the ARIA singles chart, but he’s perhaps best known overseas as the voice behind the massive Kygo collaboration Firestone which reached the top ten across Europe.
The 27 year old’s latest release sees him deploying his slick falsetto over a barrage of catchy, funk-licked pop beats, whilst lamenting the adulterous ways of a girl that he can’t get enough of. That’s right. Who You Lovin finds us in similar lyrical territory to Jason Derulo’s Cheyenne and Bruno Mars’ Natalie – both brilliant, MJ-reminiscent pop songs performed from the perspective of a man scorned.
And the most exciting and impressive thing about Conrad Sewell is that on this, just his third solo single, the ‘relative newcomer’ tag is barely recognisable. His vocal is confident and effortlessly pitched and each line gleefully delivered with assured intensity. Who You Lovin is packed with enough radio-ready hooks and soaring pop moments to surely propel this singer right back up the charts.
Sewell also today announced details of his first headline New Zelaland live show which will take place on 20 November at Galatos in Auckland (Ticket details here). The same month, he will open for Jess Glynne on her UK tour dates.
All I Know will be released to iTunes a week earlier on 13 November, and is set to feature collaborations with songwriters Jacob Kash, Sean Douglass and Jamie Hartman.
