Julian Lennon Releases First Single In 15 Years

I have always been a huge fan of Julian Lennon and am very much anticipating his return to music. His previous album, 1998’s Photograph Smile, was truly outstanding and I still listen to it and his previous albums on a regular basis. Here is all the info for “Someday” from the upcoming album Everything Changes from the press release:

Acclaimed songwriter/musician Julian Lennon is marking his 50 birthday by returning to music with a brand-new single and a forthcoming album. While proudly contemporary, “Someday” is a hopeful masterpiece. A bold nod to his lineage, it represents years of experience, learning and his innate understanding of melody, lyrics and empathy. Featuring Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, the single is an irresistible Julian composition built around compelling lyrics and stately strings. Julian Lennon has marked his half-century with an immediate pop hit with a mystical Eastern flavor; this track truly feels like an old friend. He commented: “2013 highlights another year of inspiration for me, in regards to music, photography and philanthropy, and ‘Someday’ is a reflection of that.”

“Someday” will be the debut single from his new album Everything Changes. The track has a timeless message: “We’re all in it together / One love, now and forever.” While recording in Los Angeles, Julian and Steven fast became friends and ended up trading vocals on their respective albums. Check out the stunning video for “Someday”:

And here’s what Julian has been up to for the last few years:

Julian’s photography career has seen his exhibitions presented internationally with many outstanding reviews, not only for his premiere exhibition Timeless with the Morrison Hotel Gallery in 2010 (NYC) and recently in 2013 (Los Angeles), but also for his multiple showings during Art Basel Miami. He has worked extensively with U2, his brother Sean, and photographed his friend Charlene Wittstock, exclusively for Vogue, prior to her civil wedding to Prince Albert II of Monaco. His philanthropic pursuits have been equally significant to him, with extensive charitable work through his White Feather Foundation. But the love of, and need to express himself through, music has always been a constant.

Anthony Gonzalez discusses the scoring process: “It was challenging, to say, writing the music for Oblivion during my tour with M83. In the back of the tour bus, I had a small set up and was making music whenever I could. It was a little complicated at first but a great way to take a break from the tour and lose myself in Oblivion’s score. Joseph Kosinski had a pretty good idea of what the music would be for the movie, and it took me finding a way to make him happy and make me happy during the process. The soundtrack is truly a collaboration between Joseph Kosinki, Joe Trapanese and myself.

“Scoring the film was a true enjoyment,” Gonzalez continues. “It involved lots of stress, lots of sweat, and lots of hard work, but in the end, the soundtrack serves the movie very well. It really is a great Hollywood soundtrack. Oblivion is a big film with a big sound and a big orchestra, and while the soundtrack is different from my original idea, in the end I am very proud of it. I feel incredibly lucky to be a part of this journey.”

Trapanese adds: “Joseph Kosinski and I have been talking about this film since before we finished our collaboration with Daft Punk on TRON: Legacy. While Oblivion is full of thrilling action and beautiful sci-fi landscapes and concepts, at its core is the story of love without bounds. It is a true honor to reunite with Joseph to create the musical elements of this new journey alongside M83’s Anthony Gonzalez. Joseph has created another beautiful canvas to which Anthony and I can explore complex emotions and rich sonic textures. It was no easy task to score such an epic story, but we are all thrilled with what we were able to accomplish together.”

Oblivion’s director, Joseph Kosinski, concludes: “Anthony creates music that is aspirational, emotional and uniquely his own. I teamed him with Joe Trapanese, who I worked with on my first film and another phenomenal talent. Together they have created the score that I have dreamed about since I first put this story down on paper eight years ago.”
