Hoodie Allen has revealed his new alternative pop-rock sound on his brand new track, “Wouldn’t That Be Nice”, out today. The emo-leaning track not only showcases Hoodie Allen’s versatility, but it also draws on feelings of heartbreak, finding him wearing his heart on his sleeve. The track is accompanied by an elaborate, cinematic music video portraying the beginning of his upcoming album’s storyline.
“’Wouldn’t That Be Nice’ felt like the first single because this is the first time I’m really giving people a storytelling album and it felt like there couldn’t be anywhere to start except the beginning of the end,” Hoodie Allen explained of the track, “It’s about the feeling of still holding on even though there’s so much wrong that has transpired. I want to open people up to this world I’ve created and I think ‘Wouldn’t That Be Nice’ showcases all the highs and lows and the range of dynamics. Therefore, it is the perfect appetizer for what’s to come.”
Hoodie Allen’s upcoming eight-track album weaves between infectious pop melodies juxtaposed with punk guitar riffs. A sonic departure from his usual playful raps, the record takes listeners on a highly personal journey of the messiness that befalls a breakup. He is poised to break all preconceptions with his next genre-shifting release, which was co-written and produced with The Wreck’s Nick Anderson. Hoodie’s fun-loving yet vulnerably honest take on alternative rock is fueled by his long-time love of punk rock and guaranteed to strike a chord with anyone looking for a vibrant summer soundtrack.
