Just after their latest collaboration ‘Dear August‘, Noah Cyrus and PJ Harding Teams Up On New Single ‘You Belong To Somebody Else‘ from Upcoming Debut EP ‘People Don’t Change’
While PJ in his native Australia and Noah in Los Angeles, managing to make deeply personal records from opposite sides of the world. They released their debut single “Dear August,” with an accompanying video at the end of last month.
At the onset of the global pandemic, they continued to write and record over the internet resulting in their collaborative debut EP People Don’t Change set for release April 23.
The EP spotlights the organic nature of their partnership, with stripped-down instrumentation, the extraordinary pairing of their voices, poetic lyrics and catchy melodies to create a remarkable mash-up of Americana, folk, and classic country.
PJ Shares, “At heart, this is really a raw, homemade record,” PJ states. “There’s a strong folk tradition in Australia, which you can possibly feel. There’s certainly a lot of Nashville in there too. I feel like Noah is really the guiding force here. She’s the soul of this record.”
Noah Shares, “This wouldn’t have happened without PJ,” counters Noah. “He put the music together, so I could do this. He’s the most talented dude I’ve ever partnered with. I genuinely admire him as a writer, singer, musician, and artist. Writing songs before, I honestly felt a little lost. It felt special to go back to my roots and make something with guitar and piano-like what my dad made me listen to as a kid. I felt like I was able to put my true self into this. I could be who I am at the core—which is just Noah from Nashville.”
Noah. “I was going through a lot. I suffer from anxiety and depression. We were in this cloud of darkness where it’s very easy to fall into bad habits. July and August 2020 were the hardest parts of quarantine for me. I lost my grandma, and I was looking to the future for hope. The song reminds me you will get to the light at the end of the tunnel. It may not be perfect, but you’ll get there.”
