FRESH: ‘Lovers’ – Lawson

Lawson are back with “Lovers”!

Pop-rockers Lawson enjoyed a phenomenal breakthrough, releasing five Top 10 singles and the Gold-certified debut album “Chapman Square” as well as playing shows with pop icons Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Take That. Now the boys are back with their new single “Lovers”, their first new music in four years. “Lovers” finds Lawson adding a fresh tropical pop twist on the infectious, feelgood style which captured a huge and devoted following. The song encapsulates the joy and excitement of a young romance, where nothing is more important than being with the person who means everything to you.

Frontman Andy Brown explains, “The song is about how you feel when you’re young and in love and there’s no better feeling in the world than that. It’s a feelgood song that our fans will love, but hopefully people who haven’t listened to our music before will love it too! It felt great to be back with the lads again and it gave us all a new energy to create what we think is our best stuff”. Lawson – completed by Joel Peat (guitar), Ryan Fletcher (bass) and Adam Pitts (drums) – co-wrote “Lovers” with long-term collaborator Ki Fitzgerald (who they worked with on the hits “When She Was Mine” and “Standing In The Dark”) and Jon Green (James Bay).

“Lovers” is accompanied by an official video. It sees an impassioned performance from the band complemented by a colourful backdrop which depicts a young couple embarking upon a road trip. Lawson reunited from their hiatus in 2018 to headline a show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, which sold-out in a matter of minutes. Still the best of friends, the reaction they received inspired them to start a new chapter in their career. As Andy recalls fondly, “I think the look on people’s faces and the fun we all had together that night made us realise how much we love and miss our fans and each other. We have all been busy with different things the past few years but it felt like now was the perfect time to get back in the studio and just enjoy making music together again”.

That return gathered pace last week when they shared the tongue-in-cheek documentary ‘Lawson – Where Are They Now?’. A playful parody of the music doc, the video featured guests including Robbie Williams, Rick Astley and Radio 1’s Scott Mills, and quickly started trending on Twitter. Four years is a long time in music, but Lawson’s absence has produced a mature, refined and exciting new sound. Newly signed to Cooking Vinyl (Nina Nesbitt, Will Young), they’re set to add to a career which has already encompassed 50 million streams at Spotify and 100 million views at their official YouTube site.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
