The Vamps have released another storming track, “Better,” from their upcoming album Cherry Blossom. “Better” is a propulsive, electro-tinged pop song about not settling for second best, written by lead singer Brad Simpson with Svante Halldin, Jakob Hazell and Peter Rycroft. Listen HERE.
Brad explains: “Better is a song set in the context of a relationship, about not settling for less than you feel you deserve. Falling out of love but not forgetting the reason you fell into it and working hard to get back there. It has a wider meaning though, the main lyric being ‘I won’t settle for less than best’ is a mantra that can be applied to anyone at any point in their life, whether it is in a relationship or whether it’s fulfilling your personal potential, you should always be striving to be and do the best you can. The track leans to a bit more 80’s in the production, but keeps the dirtier drum and guitar sounds that we have across the whole album. It’s so exciting for us to be showing more and more of what Cherry Blossom explores sonically and thematically, this is a band favourite off the album."
ABOUT THE VAMPS:
The Vamps (aka Brad Simpson, Connor Ball, Tristan Evans and James McVey) are gearing up for their fifth studio album, Cherry Blossom, which is due out October 16th, 2020. The album heralds a new era for the band, the rebirth of The Vamps, and is their most personal and fully-formed album to date. Since their platinum-selling debut album, Meet The Vamps, crashed into the UK charts at number 2 in 2014, the band have been holding onto a dream-like rush of albums (four in total, including 2017's chart-topping Night & Day (Night Edition), featuring the Matoma-assisted global smash “All Night” which certified Gold in the US), singles (eight UK Top 40 hits including five top 10s), and world tours (they're the first and only band to headline London's O2 Arena five years in a row).
