Canadian folk-pop artist Aaron B. Thompson is dropping his synth-filled single Come Along with Me on August 9th. The track is clear and airy as it floats with light-hearted lyrics that make it an easy listen for anyone in the room. Listen below.
On the surface, one might stack it with all the other summer songs forgotten by fall, but there’s more to this song. It is not until you discover Thompson’s backstory of overcoming an addiction that you can hear some depth in the song’s unwavering beat locked with lyrics of openness and connection.
It is proof that some songs, like any great character or plot, need a history to help the audience understand the rhythm.
Come Along with Me is available via all digital outlets.
