James Arthur’s new single “Say you won’t let go” featured on his album Back From The Edge, sparked a very positive reaction among listeners.
The track is a romantic single about a couple meeting and spending the rest of their lives together.
When described like this it sounds very clinched and no different to the other millions of love songs out there. Yet this track refuses to be cheesy or soppy and in fact successfulky comes out as rather genuine.
Maybe it’s the stopped back guitar with the subtle strings accompanied by James husky, distinctive vocals that makes this track stand apart from the other love songs, or perhaps it’s the downplayed simplistic lyrics, capturing the smallest of intimate moments and by building upon this putting these moments together, the track assembles into something quite sincere.
This is a great example of an individual within the Music Industry converting the stigma that now surrounds reality talent shows, as nobody can deny this track holds great potential for the rest of the album.
