Multi-platinum singer/songwriter/producer, blackbear, has released a brand new single featuring Tate McRae, “u love u” from his upcoming EP misery lake. The poppy ballad features the edgy pop production you’d expect to hear of any blackbear song with stellar vocals added by McRae. The song was produced by Andrew Goldstein (5 Seconds of Summer, blackbear, Lauv, All Time Low, Yungblud).
The track can be streamed on your streaming service of choice, here. Along with the song the duo released a music video for the track.
“u love u is the first single off of my EP misery lake,” says bear. “It’s an EP about isolation and feeling alone I made at the very end of quarantine before I got vaccinated. u love u is the perfect blend of nostalgic synths and new school drums that paints a picture of what it’s like to be in a relationship with a person who loves themselves so much that you feel alone. The opening line, ‘it’s been over for a year or so, I should have left a couple tears ago,’ sets it right up for what is ultimately an anthem for breaking up & to invest more time in yourself. Tate McRae then adds so much depth sonically to this song, it is truly a great way to start off the misery lake era of blackbear.”
Tate adds, “’u love u’ is a super honest song about the struggles of being in a relationship with a selfish person. I’m really excited to be a part of blackbear’s record and help bring his vision to life.”
