Everybody needs some Lauv in their life…
The stellar pop talent is side-stepping the album format, adding new material on his ongoing playlist project named I met you when I was 18, which has already brought his stellar pop gems like “Easy Love,” “Paris in the Rain,” “Getting Over You” and “I Like Me Better” – his current single that has surpassed 500 million streams, garnered platinum certifications in 7 countries, gold certifications in 3, and scanned platinum in the U.S. and is currently #17 on the Top 40 radio chart.
Lauv‘s latest single “Chasing Fire” finds him once more expanding his vision of heartbreak pop. It’s a glittering return, all glorious synths and wonderfully lucid melodies, combined with one hell of a killer chorus: “I’m chasing fire when I’m running after you, youuuu/ You got that something that I never wanna lose, lose, yeah/ It’s like dancing when the song’s already over/ Moving without getting any closer, oh/ I’m chasing fire when I’m running after youuuu.”
The result is sparkly, sublime synth-pop sadness. Basically, it’s that essential crying-at-the-discotheque anthem we’ve been waiting for from Lauv.
Lauv said of the single: “‘Chasing Fire’ is about fighting for something that’s already over. It’s the beginning of the end. It’s desperation. It’s grand. But it’s hopeless.”
Lauv’s new single “Chasing Fire” is also available on Apple Music and Spotify now!
