Sam Johnson - Changes

Taken from his forthcoming new EP‘Are We There Yet?’, Sam Johnson has shared his latest single Changes over the weekend. Continually advancing as a songwriter, his latest effort raises the bar to exceptional levels as his soaring pop sensibilities come to light across a polished backdrop of well thought out instrumentation. Speaking about his new release, he goes on to say, “This song was almost inevitable and a needed bit of closure to the ‘coming of age’ sentiment running throughout the EP. It starts with the realisation that a long distance relationship I’d had for 6 years wasn’t going to work out, but then beckons in the change that comes with that decision and the ramifications it will have on my life. Both exciting and daunting, this song really is, at its heart, an optimistic look to the future and all it might bring. Moving to London, falling in love again, and following my dreams in music are the real touchstones of this song rather than a mournful look back on what could have been.It can be summed up by a little clip of audio that I’d ripped from a video on my phone and placed deep within the song's emotive middle 8, where my girlfriend says “You’ll be fine Sammy, you’re in safe hands”. Take a listen for yourselves below.
