Joshua Bassett has done it again. Last month, he released his new EP Sad Songs In A Hotel Room. Less than two weeks later, he’s back with a brand new single, “would you love me now?”
Joshua Always Puts Us in Our Feelings
If you have listened to Joshua for a while, you know that his main thing is making honest ballads. Those, combined with his fragile, soothing vocals, always make for a great listen during those times when you want to unravel and forget about everything and just enjoy the music. Or, on the complete opposite, when you’re in your feelings and just want to cry while thinking about an ex.
“would you love me now?” is not any different, and we already fell in love with it. This song mentions someone special in Joshua’s life who he sadly doesn’t have contact with anymore, and he wonders what would happen if he ever tried to see that person again face-to-face. “If I showed up at your doorstep. Would you turn me away? Or would you care to see a stranger. Whose eyes are still the same?” he sings in the chorus.
“would you love me now?” Could Be the Beginning of Something Exciting
The new song might actually mean the start of a new chapter for Joshua, who is still getting ready to release his debut album in the future. “At the end of the summer, inspiration struck me like lightning,” Joshua says. “I found myself up at ungodly hours barely keeping up with the songs. The new music felt urgent to put out into the world. This first track – ‘would you love me now?’ – touches on how even after heartbreak and distance, there are certain people you will always find yourself asking, ‘What if we tried it again?’ From long lost love, broken promises, reconciliation, and new beginnings – you can count on one thing: it’s complicated.”
We will have to wait and see what other surprises Joshua has under his sleeve before the year ends. But for now, we really can’t complain about getting a lot of new music from him. Keep going, Joshua!
