Los Angeles actor and singer-songwriter Al Calderon has shared his new single, “No Hard Feelings” via Boom.Records. The emotional track is bubbling with raw energy laced over a simple, melodic beat. Lyrically, it finds Al reaching within, unveiling a vulnerable and cathartic reflection of his life as he grapples with anxiety and perseveres through some of life’s curveballs.
Speaking on the track, Al Calderon shares, “My anxiety sends me into a spiral of ‘what if’s,’ and this song is the prime example. Like I always fear that this could happen because life is scary and throws you curve balls, but also, life is amazing at the same time, and we can’t stop living. Otherwise, we may forget to really cherish what we have in the moment, and presence is the most important thing to remember.”
“No Hard Feelings” follows “heartbreak szn,” which found the artist drawing inspiration from Kingdom Hearts’ death screen and today’s release continues to offer a nod to the iconic video game. Over the past couple of years, Al Calderon has revealed more of himself since he was a contestant on The X-Factor and has turned to music as a creative outlet while dealing with anxiety, the loss of his mother to Cancer, and career challenges. At 27 years old, he has been steadily building his music career as he continues to craft songs for himself and others while working on his acting career.
