NEW MUSIC: WRABEL | LONDON
Wrabel showcases his versatile songwriting with the release of his new single "london," a noticeably folkier effort from "one of Hollywood's finest songwriters for a decade." Co-written with Stuart Crichton, Drew Pearson, and Cole Citrenbaum, the song tells the story of an LA-based heartbreak longing for a lost London-based love. “London will always be a second home to me," says Wrabel. "I didn’t go to college, so my months there making my first (and second) imaginary records were kind of my own version of it; being by myself in a whole different world, wandering around and finding myself. My first breakup happened there over the computer. In that feeling that you’ll never love again, I met someone, fell in love again in a cold winter in London. When we broke up, I found myself wanting to go back, wanting to walk the same streets where we met—that so close but so far away feeling.” Wrabel's debut album has garnered attention for previously released singles like "good," "nothing but the love," and "back to back" (feat. Duncan Laurence). This month, Wrabel is to embark on a short, intimate run of live dates. The nothing but the piano tour includes a stop at NYC's Le Poisson Rouge and an album release show at LA's The Regent Theater -- kicking off tomorrow at the Akron Pride Music & Arts Festival.
