BRIAN McFADDEN RELEASES DOUBLE A SIDE SINGLE 2/6/2011
COME PARTY / THAT’S HOW LIFE GOES – OUT FRIDAY 3RD JUNE
Singer, songwriter, producer and television star, Brian McFadden, releases two new singles to radio this Friday 3rd June. The party track ‘Come Party’ and the reflective ballad ‘That’s How Life Goes’ will be released as a double A side. On choosing to release a double A side, McFadden says “to be honest we couldn’t decide which song to go with. I feel that both songs show the different sides of me so perfectly, it just felt right to release them”.
Both songs were co-written by McFadden in Los Angeles in December last year, with ‘Come Party’ featuring Los Angeles born-rapper Lavay Cole. Raised in the heart of south central LA, Lavay turned to rapping and dancing at a young age to escape from the drugs, poverty and violence that surrounded him. Having worked with Black Eyed Peas and more recently commissioned by the Weinstein Company to write and perform on the soundtrack to Disney movie Hoodwinked Two, Lavay dreams of one day opening up a dance studio for underprivileged children and says he is "proud of this song and working with McFadden".
On the flip side, ‘That’s How Life Goes’ takes McFadden back into ballad territory but as he states, “I never intentionally wanted to release a ballad but this song flowed out so organically that it felt almost therapeutic to write and I like to think everyone can relate to the lyrics”.
Filmed in Queensland, the video is a continual story which runs over five minutes. Part one features Lavay who arrived on his virgin flight out of Central LA for ‘Come Party’. Part two features the stunning Australian top model Avril Alexander in ‘That’s How Life Goes’.
“I have to say I’m in a really great space musically and I’m enjoying music more than I ever have at the moment, and I look forward to nothing better than getting the songs out there and hearing them on radio and having people relate to them ”.
