Been missing Aston Merrygold? Never fear, the British pop singer – and former member of boyband JLS – is back with his new single ‘I’ve Been Missing You’.
This track feels like the major reset mark on Aston’s music career, after a big hit (the top ten smash ‘Get Stupid’), a big miss (follow-up ‘Show Me’) and a consistently delayed album (‘Showstopper’).
While the previous singles were both highly infused with that old Motown vibe, this new track shifts things a little towards the club/dance scene, a scene Aston will find himself quite comfortable, given his ability to move.
“I’m excited for this new chapter,” Aston says. “I’ve been locked in the studio for a while now! It’s been interesting creating different music, tracks that sit in different lanes to one another.
“I’m so ready for this, and for people to see what I’m about and what I can do.”
That long-awaited album is also still seemingly on the cards; collaborations with Karen Poole and Sonny J Mason, Edwin Serrano, Talay Riley and Steve Daly locked in.
No word yet on Australian action for the new chapter.
