LA-based alt-pop artist and rapper MILES has released his debut EP, NEVER HAVE I EVER today via Elektra Records. Travis Barker is featured on the title track, along with serving as its primary producer. With its arena-ready chorus and upbeat bassline, the fiery pop-rock song reflects MILES’ dynamic, genre-bending sound and serves as the perfect teaser for the rest of the EP, which can be heard now below.
The title track also arrives alongside a music video, which was directed by Abir Hashem and Cameron Nisbet. The visual follows MILES and his friends through a night out in LA.
Mining inspiration from “the trials, tribulations, and heartbreak of moving to one of the craziest cities in America” from his native St. Louis, MILES’ new EP is a relatable body of work when navigating life, relationships, and dating in the modern era. Of the title track, MILES explained, “‘NEVER HAVE I EVER’ felt like the perfect song to record live drums on when we were finalizing the EP. I was so excited when word came back that Travis was going to hop on the track; having him play drums on my song is a huge honor. I can’t wait for everyone to hear this new project and am thankful for everyone involved in it.”
In support of the new EP, MILES will make his live debut across the U.S. and Canada opening for Peach Tree Rascals on the “Does A Fish Know It’s Wet Tour.” MILES will provide direct support for the first leg of dates, which launch on Wednesday, 10/21 in San Diego and stop in major cities such as Brooklyn, Boston, Nashville, and more before wrapping in Detroit on Tuesday, November 8.
