Brent Walsh of I the Mighty Releases New Hip-Hop Inspired Single ‘The Way You Seem’: Track Appears On ‘Are You Even There at All?’ EP Out November 2nd
18th October 2018: Today, Brent Walsh premiered ‘The Way You Seem’ – the second single from his sophomore release ‘Are You Even There at All?’. ‘The Way You Seem’finds Walsh exploring new territory as he delicately balances hip-hop beats and R&B melodies with lyrics focused on the insecurity of falling in love. The track initially took shape conceptually when Walsh found inspiration in a beat that his I the Mighty bandmate, guitarist Ian Pedigo, was creating on his computer. This presented the unique opportunity for these long-time bandmates and friends to collaborate in a new way, and the result is a bold creative direction for Walsh that exemplifies the tremendous range he shows on his latest EP. As Walsh explains: “I was walking by the room of my house-mate and fellow guitarist of I The Mighty, Ian, as he was working on a beat. I immediately popped in to ask if when he was finished I could write to it for the solo record. The rap song on my first solo album became such a fan favorite that I knew I had to write another one and thus this “Justin Timberlake-esque” song was born.” You can stream ‘The Way You Seem’ now on YouTube or Spotify.
Earlier this month Brent introduced the forthcoming EP with the emotionally jarring video for first single ‘Cloud’s Song’ with you can see on YouTube or stream on Spotify. The new solo EP ‘Are You Even There At All?’ will be released November 2nd on Rude Records. It was recorded with producer Courtney Ballard (I the Mighty, 5 Seconds Of Summer, All Time Low) at the MDDN Studios in Los Angeles, CA and clearly demonstrates how much Brent has grown as an artist in the four years since his last solo effort. Walsh masterfully pulls from experience on this EP, experimenting with and further honing his alt-pop leaning sound. The result proves to be Walsh’s most ambitious and diverse release yet, taking a bold step forward in his creative journey, in his own words: “My creative inspiration is constantly changing, but I have over a decade and a half of experience now writing bodies of work that reflect a certain period of my life. ‘7’ had a lot of sadness and self-deprecation. ‘Are You Even There at All’ was written and recorded from a place of joy. Pain can be an incredible motivator. However, so can love”. ‘Are You Even There At All?’ is available for pre-order here.Walsh will be supporting Kurt Travis on the ‘Eternity Forever Fantasy’ US tour with additional support provided by Makari and, on select dates, Televangelist. The run will kick-off on October 30th, before winding its way around the country, ending on November 18th. All tickets for this tour can be purchased here.
