It’s time for some new pop folks! With just a few days left to go until the re-release of his debut album Shattered Ice, Los Angeles-based singer Adam Tyler premieres his brand-new single “Knew You Better,” provided exclusively to JonALisBlog.com! As an independent artist, Adam has managed to develop an impressively loyal fanbase throughout the years so we couldn’t be more thrilled to share his latest material with you all today. The track crafted by Sky Felix and co-produced by Adam himself, is a pulsating electro-pop number that smoothy glides between a thumbing dance beat and a hypnotic synth throb, complete with a engaging french breakdown. “‘Knew You Better‘ is my favorite song that I’ve ever written, and it’s the perfect song to lead the Shattered Ice (Deluxe Edition) re-release. Stylistically, I was inspired by Kelly Osbourne‘s “One Word” for ‘Knew You Better‘. “One Word” has always been one of my favorite songs ever since it came out, and I’ve always wanted to make a song that sounded that epic, cool, and synth-tastic,” Adam expressed to me. “So in a way ‘Knew You Better‘ is my “One Word.” I used french in the intro because I think it’s one of the most beautiful sounding languages in the world, and it fit with the instrumental and the vibe of the song perfectly.” And he got it completely right, Adam‘s smooth vocals combined with the song’s earworm of a chorus, and killer production make for a totally inspired tune – I’m totally digging it! Read what inspired the new single below:
I wrote ‘Knew You Better‘ a few years ago after my best friend, who was staying with me at the time, told me that I seemed like a different person. I wasn’t even aware that I was acting any differently and it was never my intention to change who I was. After her and I sat down and talked about it, I was inspired to write this song. It’s about someone you love becoming someone you don’t recognize. The lyrics are incredibly relatable because most people have had someone in their lives they’ve grown apart from due to change.
