Saskatchewan-raised, Alberta-based emerging country artist Brayden King has released his latest single “Livin’ The Dream” on March 24th.
The single release coincides with King’s announcement of his participation in Season 21 of American Idol. After receiving a yes from each judge: Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, viewers can tune in to see Brayden take the stage in Hollywood to see if he will be the next American Idol.
Brayden King’s New Single “Livin’ The Dream”
With a unique blend of rock n’ roll and country that is captivating audiences across Canada and beyond, Brayden King has us daydreaming about what it’s like to be “Livin’ The Dream”.
King says, “My new song, “Livin’ The Dream,” was truthfully inspired by a hangover.
I woke up one morning, after a series of weekends going out to clubs and realized I was having no fun. It just felt like every night was a repeat of the last – the same kinds of people, being rejected by girls, drinking too much, losing things, and spending way too much money.”
Brayden was inspired to write the song after waking up one morning with a hangover and realizing that he was stuck in a cycle of repetitive nights out, with little to no enjoyment or fulfillment.
“I think this song is unique because musically, it has a very anthemic, positive vibe. It’s an easy sing along. But once you take a deeper look into the lyrics, you find that there’s a darker theme and message there, almost self deprecating. It’s an interesting one, that’s for sure,” says King.
