6x RIAA platinum-certified singer-songwriter gnash exposed new fantastic double singles “Three”
three – which features two brand new songs about love in the deeply moving “Guiding Light” and “I Got A Lot To Lose” – is available now via Atlantic Records/Overall Recordings at all DSPs and streaming services.
gnash says: “‘Guiding Light’ is a song about forever love,” “i think people are in our lives to teach us soul-level lessons, and i know i’ve learned a lot from my partner beyond either of our years – ‘you & I, it’s a storybook as old as time.’
He adds: “Love is a lot,” “ ‘I Got A Lot To Lose’ is about putting everything on the line for someone when it feels like nothing matters if you don’t matter to them – ‘what if i lived? what if you died?”
The series of new singles began in October with one, featuring “Seasons” backed by the previously released “Palm Trees.” one is available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Last month then saw the arrival of two, which includes “Family, Man” (co-written and co-produced by gnash with singer-songwriter Annika Bennett) backed with the previously released “Money, Love & Death.” two is available now.
Both one and two follow the premiere earlier this year of gnash’s acclaimed collaboration with fellow chart-topping singer-songwriter Annika Wells for the playfully organic new duet, “granola bars,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Written by gnash – a.k.a. Garrett Nash – and Wells (Illenium, BTS, Steve Aoki) and produced by Nash, Wells, and Giulio Cercato, the track was met by praise from such online outlets as The Honey Pop, which raved, “‘granola bars’ is a simple but moving track with minimal background music and a focus on the back-and-forth between gnash and Annika. With lyrics that describe the perfect getaway and vibes that are upbeat and happy, this track is a shoo-in for that camping-for-two playlist.”
“granola bars” followed a stunning series of deeply personal singles released by gnash under his birth name of Garrett Nash, including “Where The Sidewalk Ends“ (a collaboration with 7x JUNO Award-nominated Canadian singer-songwriter Scott Helman), “The Middle Of Nowhere,” “Super Glue,” Shwayze x Garrett Nash’s “Breathe In,” and a nostalgic cover of his childhood favorite, Fountains of Wayne’s “Stacy’s Mom.”
Known for his genre-blurring brand of modern pop, gnash made his global breakthrough with 2016’s multi-platform blockbuster hit single, “i hate u, i love u.” The stripped-bare track reached the top 10 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – where it spent an impressive 39 weeks – and singles charts around the world, earning 6x RIAA platinum certification and more than 2B global streams. Furthermore, the “i hate u, i love u” companion video is an unadulterated blockbuster, now with over 703M individual views via YouTube alone.
2019 saw gnash follow a series of EPs with his RIAA gold certified full-length debut album, we, drawing praise from such outlets as The Guardian for its “highly intimate confessionals about doubt, anxiety and insecurity…the combination of charming tunes and humbling insights are truly lovely.”
A strong advocate for mental health, gnash has long been open about his struggles, publicly acknowledging the benefits of therapy while also encouraging fans to find their own unique way to express themselves.
