Scott Helman Shares New Single ‘Old Friends’
Canadian Pop Singer-Songwriter Scott Helman is back with his angst ridden new single ‘Old Friends’, offering an early look at his forthcoming collection of tracks due out later this year.
Blending his effortless, breathy vocals with delicate piano and a muted beat 'Old Friends' lulls the listener into a false sense of melancholic security before the monstrous chorus thunders in. A rock infused chorus with a hook bigger than life itself, the track already sounds as though there's a stadium full of people shouting the words.
Scott has established himself as one of Canada’s leading singer-songwriters. Since the release of his breakthrough 2016 EP Augusta, the seven-time JUNO Award nominee has dominated the Canadian music scene with his 2017 debut full-length Hôtel de Ville and 2018 EP Hang Ups, earning three platinum and three gold certifications to date, plus collaborations with Alessia Cara and Hunter Hayes, as well as tours with the likes of Tegan and Sara, Shawn Mendes, Vance Joy, Walk Off The Earth and Dean Lewis. Having also been selected as a panelist on CBC’s Canada Reads, following the release of his sophomore album Nonsuch Park (sa), which featured the explosive gold-certified lead single ‘Wait No More’.
