BlackBook Premiere: Conrad Sewell Drops ‘Who You Lovin’ Off His Forthcoming ‘All I Know’ EP

“I’m trying to write pop in the context of soul,” said Australian singer/songwriter Conrad Sewell late last year, while perusing a London liquor store. “I’m finished now for [2015]; I can just chill and hang out with my family.” But with a forthcoming EP slated for U.S. release Jan. 8, the “Firestone” hitmaker has much to look forward to in the New Year.

Sewell’s new EP, titled All I Know, will feature six songs, all lyrically centered on stories of heartbreak. “When I moved to Los Angeles, I broke up with my girlfriend,” he said. “It sort of sparked a lot of those songs” Each of the six tracks are imbued with relatable references to love and lust, Sewell’s voice being the defining element.

“[It’s] quite different,” said Sewell, discussing his distinct sound. The rising talent’s vocals occupy a lane comparable to that of Pop King Michael Jackson—an undeniable radio-friendly quality with authentic, passionate undertones.

With recent stints performing at Jingle Ball 2015 and winning Australia’s coveted Song of the Year Aria Award for “Start Again,” Sewell is an artist to be watched closely this year. Ahead of All I Know‘s nearing release, we’re thrilled to premiere “Who You Lovin”—a bright, funky single that masks the singer’s pain with buzzing dance production. Listen, below:
