The Artist: American Authors
The Song: "What We Live For"
Where you heard it first: As some of you may know, my new favorite music obsession is American Authors. After their breakout hit "Best Day of My Life", I downloaded their first album and was not disappointed. Almost two years later, the boys of Authors are back with another album. They premiered their first single "Pride" on Ellen and the album What We Live For was set to be released May 13th. For some reason, the album has now been pushed back to July, but in order to not disappoint their fans, the band released three more songs off the 12-track album including this title track. When it showed up on my iTunes, I couldn't have been more excited to dive into some new music from this awesome band.
Why it’s been stuck in your head: New music from a favorite band always becomes an earworm to you, doesn't it? This song is no different for me. I haven't been able to stop listening to it since it was released.
Why you recommend it to our listeners: If you were a fan of their first hit, you won't be disappointed by the sound that American Authors has produced for their second album. They are still living up to their catchy songs and fun lyrics.. If you don't believe me, just try not singing along when you watch the video below.
