KSI is sure to delight fans around the world today (September 30th) with the surprise release of his brand new single ‘Summer Is Over’.
Produced by Dan Priddy (Ashnikko, Rag’n’Bone Man, P!nk) and written alongside James ‘YAMI’ Bell (Cat Burns, Tom Grennan, James Arthur), Nick Gale (Dua Lipa, Mimi Webb, Charli XCX), and Andrew Bullimore (Little Mix, Wilkinson, Jonas Blue), the brooding, laid-back tune marks somewhat of a sonic shift for the Watford native, as he pairs tender lyrics with calming melodies that allow listeners the opportunity to reminisce on summer days gone by.
Commenting on the surprise release of the single, KSI says in a press statement: “I made ‘Summer Is Over’ at a time when I felt completely lost. This song is very personal to me, and I think it says everything about how I was feeling during this chapter in my life. I hope you enjoy.”
The tracks accompanying music video – directed by Troy Roscoe (Ed Sheeran, Burna Boy, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Polo G) – gives us a glimpse of the “good life” as audiences are are invited to attend KSI’s closing summer pool party, where the champagne is flowing and the ‘Lose’ singer is seen around a fire-pit with friends, celebrating the end of summer.
