We're not going to lie: This week hasn't been an easy one for a lot of people. And though one song isn't going to change that, the first track off of Millionyoung
's upcoming album makes us smile.
Put aside the bouncy beats and sun-washed guitar lines; what gets us on "Lovin" is that this is an unabashed love song. "It's about a girl I couldn't get out of my head. Pop stuff," explains Millionyoung--aka Mike Diaz, the Florida-based musician who makes up the band. He's not kidding--the opening lines of the song are, "Oh I can't forget you / You are always on my mind / And every time I see you / I lose all track of time."
It's not just us who enjoy listening to it; Diaz lists it among one of his favorites to work on while putting together his new album, Variable
, which comes out in February. "It was a lot of fun, sort of a different approach than I usually do. I was really digging into soul music while working on this record, and it's probably most present in this song," says Diaz.
So consider this your good vibes pick-up to usher in the weekend--because we've got the exclusive premiere, and it's available to download, which means you can listen to it over and over again. That's something we really love.
