Song Premiere: Drew Schueler Drops “Strangers” on Friday the 13th
Good news! Drew Schueler is stealing the thunder from this Friday the 13th by dropping his new single, “Strangers.” Though the date is considered superstitiously to be a day of bad luck, here at Nashville Offbeat, we believe he will have anything but. “Strangers” is a compelling and relatable pop song that gives the listener insight into the end of a relationship. But don’t think it’s a sad song, because as Drew describes it, it’s the story of “an awakening.”
Capturing the essence of drama, the pain of heartbreak, and the freedom of letting go, “Strangers” is a beautifully written song about the romantic tragedy of losing a part of your identity in someone else. “Strangers” will take you back to that relationship - you know the one: the one that you refused to let go of, even though you knew it wasn’t right. The one when you were all in, (even though you were more in love with the idea of love than love itself).
In the first few lines, you’re given a hint of drama, and through early conversations with the antagonist, you get a sense of carefree recklessness. You can feel the pull toward being alone rather than in the hurricane of being with this other person- (and you understand it!) Continue listening and you’ll find that the decision being made- for the vocalist to distance himself from someone- is heartbreaking, but by the time the second chorus comes in, you can already feel him becoming more free.
“I thought I loved you, but now I know, I don’t know nothin’ bout’ love.”
“Strangers” will be officially released on all major platforms on April 13th, 2018. It’s part of Drew Schueler's first EP coming May 4th titled “New Perspective” that we’re incredibly excited to hear! Don’t miss out on his EP release party happening at The Back Corner on April 26th from 6-8, (it’s FREE)! Go give him a follow on Facebook, Instagram, and Spotify to stay up-to-date and watch him do great things.
