Tyde Levi’s new bop ‘AAA’ is brother Troye Sivan’s favourite
BMG Australia-signed Tyde Levi has announced the release of new single ‘AAA’.
Levi spent much of 2019 writing in Norway, London and Los Angeles, before releasing ‘Flying So Far’ at the end of last year, gaining supper from global tastemakers including Zane Lowe.
‘AAA’ was written with Matt Zara (Matoma, Olly Murs, Jason Derulo, James Blunt) and Caitlyn Scarlett, and offers listeners more of the smooth, alt-RnB style that is fast becoming known as the Perth-based artist’s signature sound.
The track got its first play on commercial radio last week with Ash London on the Hit Network.
Labelled by Levi’s brother Troye Sivan as his “favourite song of Tyde’s so far”, fans have already familiarised themselves with ‘AAA’ through performances, social and streaming.
“I wrote ‘AAA’ when I was in London for a few weeks,” said Levi. “I had been there a while and there were a couple of things in my life that just weren’t going the way I expected.
“That’s always a tough battle to have. A lot of things had built up inside me and I just wanted to get out of there, so I wrote AAA, a song about being in love and running away.
“Getting as far away from all the things that could trouble someone in today’s world and falling so deeply in love that it doesn’t even matter that you left everything you know.”
Levi has recently performed sold-out headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney after supporting the likes of CXLOE, Honne, Mansionair and Sivan in Australia and China.
With more new music on the horizon, Levi should be a constant on radio’s radar in 2020.
