GRAMMY® Award-nominated, critically acclaimed singer and songwriter Gallant returns with a brand new single entitled “Sharpest Edges.” – LISTENHEREvia Mind of a Genius/Warner Records. The song notably precedes the arrival of his follow up album to 2016’s universally acclaimed full-length debut, Ology.
Over a bright backdrop of neon synths and flourishes of glossy eighties-style production by Stint, Gallant‘s voice slips from evocative verses into a head-bobbing hypnotic hook as he croons, “You’ve got the sharpest edges I’ve ever seen,” and the bridge climaxes with an ecstatic falsetto wail. Bridging eras and defying genres, “Sharpest Edges” illuminates Gallant’s slick, sultry and soulful evolution.
Gallantexplains, “There are two sides to every coin—a bunch of caskets buried underneath every vacation home. I had problems with depression for a long time because even though you get to choose your own outlook on life, it’s hard sometimes to ignore the bad shit, the mistakes you made and the things you could have done better. It’s easier to admit the world is full of sharp edges—and to make a goal to have as many close calls as you can.”
