    Out on October 4th.

    “I’m excited to announce that my brand new album ‘My Name is Michael Holbrook’ will be released on October 4th!! You can pre-order it now to receive my new single ‘Ice Cream’ straight away as well as access to pre-sale tickets for my tour!
    Ice Cream was written on a day of extreme heat in August. It was the last few weeks of writing for the album; a writing period that lasted two years. Through the writing I had confronted personal, serious and at times painful issues. By the end of it I felt lighter and freer. This was one of the last songs written for the new album. The song is a daydream fantasy. Like a heat mirage, and makes me feel like anything is possible. Summer and heat provokes that. The surreal dreamlike state of endless heat soaked afternoons. Pearls of sweat, dreams of summer flings, the smell and feel of a car in summer when you first step into it, the smell of a plastic parasol baking in the sun. The mix of possibility and lazy frustration. Senses and daydreams on the run.”

    October seems so far away! I'm looking forward to it, though.

    He just released the video to his newest single, Tiny Love.

    Unfortunately I find the song very disjointed. It could've simply been a nice ballad. The video is beautiful tho.

    Yes

    Everyone seems to love it but it really didn’t click with me. I feel like it’s various songs in one. It sounds weird to me.

    Really curious about this. The first songs sound really promising.

    My ranking:

    Sanremo: so summery, relaxing, joyful. Love it.

    Dear Jealousy: so upbeat and catchy.

    Tiny Love: Didn't like it at first and there have been several times I wanted to delete it from my playlist, but I liked the lyrics and every time when I almost pressed delete, I decided to give it another chance. And then it finally clicked with me. I LOVE it now.

    So those first three, vary every day in their ranking. One day I feel summery and go for Sanremo. Next I play Dear Jealousy and it's catchiness make me want to replay it over and over. And then I listen to Tiny Love which grew last on me and therefor still sounds fresh and I love the beauty of it.

    And then there is Icecream. I deleted it from my playlist as I didn't really like it. But now the other three make me want to listen to it again and give it another chance.

    I feel the same about the three first songs. Did you hear Tomorrow?

    It's a beautiful album! There's really a difference between the first and the second half. It feels like 2 concept albums. Stay High is great, Blue is a masterpiece!

    The only songs that do nothing to me are Cry and Platform Ballerinas. They feel pointless to me.

    Tiny Love Reprise is beautiful. I think his mom sings on this followed by his sister Paloma.

    I think the album sounds nice Much better than the last one. Ice Cream is still the highlight for me though.
