SINGLE REVIEW: Pieces Of You by Drake Jensen

The acclaimed Nashville recording artist Drake Jensen has just released Pieces Of You,the follow-up to his last single, a notable reinterpretation of Corey Hart’s classic hit Never Surrender, which was a massive success at radio and on all streaming platforms. The new track is another taste of Drake’s fifth studio album, ICONIC and a significant addition to his previous achievements. Written by renowned Canadian singer-songwriter Lennie Gallant, Drake Jensen has transformed a superlative song into a certifiable country-pop hit, infusing the song’s hooks and the lyric with his inimitable vocal style and idiosyncratic pop sensibility. Gallant’s song retains its narrative ingenuity while embellished with a contemporary glow, bringing the synergistic emotional power into sharp relief. Jensen’s treatment of Pieces Of You is a cohesive blend of country, pop with some subtle references to folk and rock. The track is part of ICONIC, which will be released soon and includes versions of iconic Canadian songs from Gordon Lightfoot, Anne Murray, Leonard Cohen, and Rita MacNeil. Drake Jensen’s 2011 debut album On My Way to Finding You marked the start of an extraordinary chapter in this Glace Bay native’s music career. In 2012, Drake’s career took off following the phenomenal success worldwide of a YouTube video of the album’s title track. His second Outlaw album followed, which included the smash Scars. 2015 saw Drake’s third album, Retro, with his interpretation of Everytime I See Your Picture earning him praise from celebrated Canadian rock icon Luba, who called Drake a “maverick” in the industry. In 2016, his album Sideshow was released with the lead single Wherever Love Takes Us bulleting into the Top 40 Country Charts in Australia. Burn the Floor, released in May of 2020, was a massive hit at Australian Radio and was voted “Video of the Year” by fans of the site Country Queer. With over 100k Spotify streams, Pieces Of You will undoubtedly reaffirm Jensen’s unifying appeal and star status.
