Gareth Fernandez is back with the spiritual successor to 2019’s gospel-inflected track, “Achilles,” and 2020’s emotional ballad, “Put You Through.”
The soulful pop singer pours his heart out on his latest single “Could Have Been Us”—released today on all digital and streaming platforms worldwide. This song was co-written with the inimitable indie darling Linying (Sticky Leaves, Paris 12), who also lends her hauntingly beautiful vocals to the track.
With Shaykhandbake returning as producer, “Could Have Been Us” features tender piano lines, and is enveloped by a rich, gospel-style choir.
While “Achilles” deconstructed our egos, and “Put You Through” challenged us to acknowledge our faults in our pasts, “Could Have Been Us” retreads these heartbreaks one last time, before setting them aflame and bidding them farewell.
Gareth Fernandez is an artist that draws influences from soulful singers like Sam Smith, John Legend, and Adele. He writes about the millennial/Gen Z experience in today’s fluid, confusing virtual insanity.
“Could Have Been Us” is out now on all digital and streaming platforms worldwide.
