Rising star Wrabel Kicks Off With his first release in 2021 ‘good’ featured along with an official video
The new single “good” is about letting go of the arresting nature of our memories, failures, ex-lovers & disappointments, so we can see clearly enough in the here & now to embrace the magic currently in front of us. Also out today is the accompanying music video, directed by Carlos Asse.
It’s classic Wrabel – gorgeous falsetto soaring amongst choral hums, a soulful confessional vocal delivery accented with each piano key, lyrics that toe the line between universally relatable and deeply personal like an entry taken from his private diary. Like his past acclaimed multi-million streamed singles “11 Blocks” and “The Village,”“good” is an earnest & honest exploration of the scary, unsure parts in all of us that binds us together as humans.
Wrabel says, “I feel so lucky to have worked with Carlos Asse on this video,” Wrabel says. “We wanted to build off of one of my favorite lyrics in the song – ‘i know you still see him in your apartment , let me in i’ll paint the walls.’ – following a couple as they move into a new space – like a fresh start. Whether it’s anger, resentment or hurt, sometimes it’s the smallest disagreement that can send those feelings from the deep – down to the surface. The smallest thing can turn a good thing bad. But leaning in and trusting can keep a good thing good.”
Wrabel showcased his artistry on the national NBC TODAY stage last year performing “hurts like hell”, and his forthcoming debut LP (to drop later in 2021) will continue his journey as a celebrated artist in his own right, following the release of his stripped, heart-on-his-sleeve ‘piano’ collection this past year and 2019’s ‘one of those happy people’ EP which had Billboard saying that Wrabel is “ready for his breakthrough.”
