Today, Lauv released his new single, “I Like Me Better” – LISTEN HERE. With its first look on Billboard.com, “I Like Me Better” is released across digital platforms and streaming services today. “I Like Me Better” follows the release of Lauv’s debut single “The Other,” a song Lauv wrote while studying at NYU, which has amassed over 75 million streams on Spotify and growing. The track also earned the titles of Today’s Top Hits and Global 100. WATCH HERE his recently released video to “The Other.” Lauv’s catalog has accumulated over 100 million streams.
With his latest single “I Like Me Better,” Lauv offers up a more uptempo track built on gracefully sculpted beats and shimmering melody. But even with its brighter mood, “I Like Me Better” still delivers the soul-baring lyrics and intimate vocals that perfectly reflect Lauv’s artistic mission.
Lauv, now signed to Prescription Songs and Kobalt Music Recordings, has appeared at festivals including Firefly and brought the wistful intimacy of his music to the live arena. As heard on “I Like Me Better,” that unfettered openness remains a major touchstone for Lauv. “Before I started making music as Lauv, I’d lost that sense of who I really was for a while,” said Lauv. “It seems like a lot of people lose touch with that forever, and end up living a life that’s not really true to who they are. By being so honest in my songs, I want to encourage people to be okay with who they are and what they feel. More than anything else, that’s what drives me to create music in a massive way.”
This month Lauv is embarking on his “late nights, deep talks” tour with May and June show dates in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York City, and more – PURCHASE HERE THE tickets. Lauv also co-wrote and co-produced Cheat Codes & Demi Lovato’s brand new single, “No Promises.”
