It’s called “Sad Song,” and it’s due for proper release on July 21.
The song is indeed a sad song (“This is a sad song”), even if the background music seems to suggest otherwise.
It reminds me a bit of another sad song called “(This Is A) Song For The Lonely,” mixed with a touch of that new mall-punk-electro sound a la 3OH!3.
Generally, I quite like it.
But just where does he get off referencing a “battlefield” so near to Jordin Sparks‘ album release tomorrow?! I mean, he’s clearly trying to steal her thunder.
“Sad Song” will be streaming for 24 hours, so listen now while you still can.
