Global pop star Tyler Shaw Releases a Brand New Single “Be Like You” Featured along with an official video
The new single “Be Like You” from Tyler, pulsates with a rhythmic beat as Shaw’s roaring vocals tell the tale of an ex-lover meeting someone new. Co-written and produced by Tyler Shaw himself, as well as Sam Merrifield (Lewis Capaldi, JC Stewart), the song will be featured on Shaw’s forthcoming third studio album due out this summer.
“Be Like You” carries a sentiment that almost everyone can relate to. Yet again he’s tapped into our limbic systems and offers a sense of comfort to anyone that has struggled to get over a past relationship when the other person has already moved on, and your time together is nothing but a distant memory. As melancholic as the song seems, it also carries a message of hope and empowerment—subjects that have become a recurring theme in Tyler’s music.
Tyler shares, “Songwriting is storytelling, and ‘Be Like You’ is one so many people can relate to. I wanted to write a love song from a past tense experience, one that tapped into that deep ache you get thinking back on better times together.” explains Tyler Shaw. On the live video, he also notes, “Being back on stage was beyond exciting. It’s home to me. It felt incredible and energizing to play with my band, see the lights, and sing new music. To say I can’t wait to do it for an audience is a huge understatement.”
