After dropping back-to-back magnetic summer singles with “eta” and “Welcome to My Mind,” rising star and singer-songwriter Spencer Barnett has released his latest bop, “48 Hours in Paris” via The Orchard.
The earworm was co-written by Barnett alongside frequent collaborators The 23rd (Grace Carter, Becky Hill, Claudia Valentina), Jackson Lee Morgan (Sabrina Carpenter, FLETCHER, Keith Urban), and Jon Hoskins (Khalid, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Hailee Steinfeld). The track is co-produced by Hoskins and The 23rd.
“48 Hours in Paris” is the latest from the forthcoming final chapter of Barnett’s ambitious three-part EP trilogy series, which is due out later this year and follows I’m Fine (“Waste My Time”) and debut EP Reckless (“17”) that garnered critical acclaim and landed him across Spotify and Apple Music’s most coveted pop playlists.
On his new single, Barnett shares, “‘48 Hours in Paris’ chronicles my first experience in the City of Light. The feeling of being in an incredible place for the first time is like no other. With this song I tried to capture that moment, to grab a hold of that feeling again.”
Spencer’s three-part debut EP series, executive-produced by Hoskins (Khalid, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Hailee Steinfeld), finds him blending soulful melodies, indie rock leads, and bedroom-inspired guitar riffs alongside his nostalgic songwriting that encapsulates youthful abandon. After independently releasing his debut EP, Reckless, Barnett partnered with Sony’s The Orchard to release his sophomore effort, I’m Fine. The projects have solidified him as one to watch and garnered critical acclaim from the likes of PAPER, V MAN, Ones to Watch, Flaunt, and L’Officiel USA while also landing him on Spotify and Apple Music’s most coveted playlists including New Music Friday, Pop Rising, A-List Pop, and Breaking Pop.
Gearing up to release the final installment of his debut trilogy, his forthcoming EP finds him opening up like never before. While his sense of melody is undeniably timeless, Barnett endlessly pushes toward sonic innovation, dreaming up a boldly inventive yet subtly nuanced sound. Spencer Barnett is poised to take 2020 by storm paving the way in a style that is uniquely his own.
