This year has been a big deal for 20-year-old Arden Jones. After accruing over 15 million streams as an independent artist, Arden started releasing golden-hued singles “SMILE,” “rollercoaster,”and “Parallel Parking,” to name a few. His radiant hooks, twinkling beats, and feisty lyrics are taking him to the top, and cater to a wide fanbase. Having already amassed over 2 million views on TikTok, Arden’s latest release is proving to be yet another crowd-pleaser.
On the upbeat “either way,” Arden conveys the message of never giving up, even when the idea convinces otherwise. Over an encouraging piano melody and a forward-moving beat, Arden describes navigating the ups and downs of life and using the promise of another day to get by. He avidly sings, “I can’t believe we came this far / Something you should think about when life gets hard” and “Either way the sun gonna shine.” You can check it out below.
About the track, Arden shares,
“’either way’ is a song about perseverance and hope. No matter what happens, good or bad, one thing you can be sure of is the sun rising the next day. I love thinking of things this way because it makes it feel like we are all alright. Nobody really knows what they’re doing in this life, we are all trying our best.”
You can listen to “either way” on platforms like Apple Music, SoundCloud, and Spotify.
