Wes Carr has seemingly ditched the Buffalo and the Buffalo Tales and has returned to his own stage name for the impending release of a new single, which takes him in a whole new musical direction… dance/pop.
The singer, who first rose to prominence via the ‘Australian Idol’ competition back in 2008, clearly decided the time was right to make big changes in his career and the new single ‘Anthem’ documents that “rebirth”.
“I wanted to write a song about being in the moment, it’s so easy to say but so hard to do,” Wes says of the new single. “People these days are living so fast trying to keep up with all the demands of everyday existence. It’s insane. But what is it that makes you really come alive? We need to start celebrating ourselves more, we have the capability to do anything, we are all trying to make this life the best it can possibly be by expanding ourselves and challenging ourselves. I wanted to write a song that harnessed this intention. No matter how lost you might feel, just know that you aren’t as lost as you think you are. You can be anything. Just be clear with what you want.”
This new rebirth in his career also comes with a fresh new look for the singer, who’s documented losing his Buffalo Tales long locks in the official video for ‘Anthem’, below.
The single will be released digitally on Friday August 08.
