Ya boy, Daryl Braithwaite has blessed us with a brand new jam today. ‘Love Songs’ is a pretty poppy, upbeat tune and a different kinda sound for the ‘Horses’ legend.
The Aussie music industry icon, Daryl Braithwaite explains that the, pretty unexpected, new single was written by Michael Fatkin and LA-based writers: Rozzi Crane and Charlie Synder, originally for P!nk.
“It was sent to me by an old friend of mine.”
“He wanted to know if I could forward it to my friend, ex-Sherbet manager Roger Davies. He wanted to see if P!nk would like it. I had it for two days and thought ‘My God, this sounds right up P!nk’s alley’.
“I sent it to Roger on my phone and didn’t hear back. Weeks turned into a couple of months and eventually we ended up having lunch together – I asked what he thought of the song and he said he’d never received it.”
“I had started playing it with my band and the reaction it got from audiences was really good. People at the gigs felt like they knew it by the second chorus.”
The good news is that Davies dug the Daryl Braithwaite sound on the track saying, “It suits you more than P!nk, and she’s not recording at the moment.”
“I was relieved. So, we went ahead and recorded it,” said Braithwaite.
Have a listen to the song down below.
Daryl Braithwaite hasn’t released an album since Forever The Tourist back in 2013.
