ALEXANDER 23 RELEASES DEFIANT BREAKUP SONG “CRASH”
GRAMMY-NOMINATED POP ARTIST TO JOIN JOHN MAYER ON TOUR THIS SPRING
SET TO PERFORM AT LOLLAPALOOZA 2022
01 APRIL 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Alexander 23 shares his instantly catchy track "Crash" via Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. A breakup song with jangly guitars and relatable lyrics, "Crash" is an unfiltered parting shot at an ex. And it arrives hot on the heels of news that Alexander will be making his return to Lollapalooza this Summer. Of the track Alexander shares, “’Crash’” is about missing someone you were in a relationship with, but not missing who you both became within that relationship.” Listen to "Crash" HERE and watch the lyric video HERE.
Opening with arpeggiated guitar and whisper-sung vocals, "Crash" slowly blooms into a fiery pop-rock track. "I miss you, but I don't miss us,” Alexander sings on the tart chorus. “Cause apart we're great, but together we suck." His newfound resolve is driven home by forceful drums, which underscore the defiance at the song's core.
"Crash" is the latest taste of Alexander's forthcoming full-length debut, which he has been working on with producer Dan Nigro (Olivia Rodrigo, Carly Rae Jepsen, Conan Gray). “It’s as honest as I’ve ever been, both lyrically and sonically,” Alexander told Rolling Stone about the project. “I’ve poured everything I have into making this over the past year, and I hope people can find some answers they’ve been looking for in it.”
“Crash” follows the Rodrigo co-write "Hate Me If It Helps," which arrived to wide acclaim in February. American Songwriter hailed the track, which Alexander produced alongside Nigro, saying it "seems to capture something about today’s Zeitgeist," while Euphoria called it "the perfect breakup song."
Alexander is gearing up for a whirlwind spring. In April, the Illinois native is up for his first Grammy Award for co-producing Olivia Rodrigo's pop-punk smash "good 4 u." And then, in May, he will rejoin John Mayer on rescheduled US dates for the singer and guitarist's Sob Rock Tour 2022 before heading to the UK and Ireland for shows supporting pop upstart Tate McRae. Between his producer credits, electric live performances, and his growing body of solo work, Alexander 23 is destined to leave his mark on the pop world in 2022.
