Surf Mesa releases highly anticipated “City Of Love” with Selah Sol


When Surf Mesa sets out to make music, he does so with his fans in mind. The songwriter and producer strives to make pop music that listeners can enjoy day or night, and with streaming numbers that have reached a combined global total of over 12 billion, it is safe to say that Surf Mesa is definitely accomplishing his goals. Listeners are probably most familiar with his 2019 collaboration with Emilee, “ily (i love you baby),” which racked up over 300 million streams in its first three months. After such an incredible release, Surf Mesa continued to work with other artists like Gus Dapperton and Madison Beer, releasing unique tracks that played to everyone’s strengths. For his first single of 2023, Surf Mesa is teaming up with Selah Sol to give us a story about starting over.

On “City Of Love,” we find out why it is not always easy to begin a new life somewhere else. Despite its free-falling energy, complete with playful dance beats and warm piano, the track contains lyrics that are not as carefree. Selah Sol gives us lines like, “Don’t wanna be closer to the truth / Don’t wanna be reminded of you,” before admitting that moving on is much harder to do in a new city when old memories arise. You can check it out in the visualizer below, which features downhill skater Cole Trotta.

About “City Of Love,” Surf Mesa shares,

“My heart has taken its time to sit with this song for a while now. I first heard the vocal from Selah Sol in October of 2021 and I spent that same night in the studio, drawing my imagination to audio. Countless versions and revisions have been made until this one, and I could not be more ready to share it with the world!! This song resonates with my life and sonic sound to a T, and I hope it resonates with listeners, too.”

You can listen to “City Of Love” on platforms like SoundCloud, Spotify, and Apple Music.
