Rising electronic music star BRELAND is back with his new powerful single ‘Cross Country‘ featured along with a music video
The new single “Cross Country” from BRELAND serves as a statement of purpose for a boundary-shattering singer/songwriter/producer. True to the double meaning of its title, the acoustic-guitar-laced track finds BRELAND reflecting on the action-packed journey to this point in his career – an adventure that’s taken him from New Jersey to Atlanta to Hollywood to his current home of Nashville – while boldly stating his refusal to conform to any genre or style.
With a vocal delivery that’s both vulnerable and triumphant, BRELAND perfectly captures that sentiment in the soul-stirring chorus: “I won’t stop running/Till I find where I belong/I’m going cross country/Know they might judge me/I ain’t gotta prove them wrong.” The fresh track is written by BRELAND, Sam Sumser, Sean Small, and Will Gittens and produced by Sumser and Small (whose shared credits include Keith Urban, Jason Derulo, and Austin Mahone).
BRELAND shares, “‘Cross Country’ the song is my personal story about how I became an artist, but Cross Country the movement is about redefining genre to dismantle music boundaries and inspire dialogue,” shared BRELAND with Spotify’s Hot Country.
The new official video for the single was directed by James Larese which features BRELAND living in a split-screen dichotomy of two separate lives: one he lives now as a fast-rising artist, and what could have been had he not followed his dream to pursue music.
The rising star continues to make headlines, partnering with Chevrolet for the launch of the brand’s TikTok channel, which released a rebooted music video for “My Truck,”while starring in Tommy Jeans’ Spring ‘21 campaign in Macy’s stores across the country that features musicians, poets, and activists from diverse walks of life sharing their unique perspectives on utilizing music to drive social change.
