Shaun Young – an aspiring singer songwriter based in Johannesburg – announces the release of his latest single The Hours, the first off of his latest EP A Heavy Heart.
With a deep-rooted passion for pop music and a need to share with others, the single speaks to the daily rush and challenges created in the pursuit of one’s passion and craft.
On releasing the EP, Young recollects, “Having a relatively serious and demanding corporate career can, at times, consume you. At one stage I could only remember waking up, working, going to bed, over and over again. In between I could remember blurry city lights at night and the yearning to make a relationship work, regardless of distance or circumstances. So I latched onto this idea that my circumstances would change and I could be reunited with the love I lost. Melodically and lyrically I came up with a song about the daily rush, and the challenge it creates in pursuing the love you yearn for.”
A Heavy Heart is available now across digital platforms.
