Singer-songwriter and rising pop superstar Johnny Orlando has delighted fans with the release of his highly anticipated new single and video, “Everybody Wants You” via Island Records.
The new record sees Orlando collaborate with New York-based songwriters/producers Kellen Pomeranz and Jesse Fink, otherwise known as Pom Pom, and singer-songwriter and label-mate Soran Dussaigne (Soran), to create a strong, ‘crank-up-the-volume’ track that will be featured on Orlando’s upcoming sophomore EP, scheduled for release this fall.
The official video, which made its global broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU, and on the Viacom Times Square billboard on Sept. 10, was directed by Alex P. Smith (UMC) with art and animation by Gabe Sapienza, marks the first time Orlando has mixed animation into one of his videos, capturing and exaggerating the vibe of the music.
“‘Everybody Wants You’ is the first real taste of my upcoming EP, which I have been working on for over the last year,” says Orlando.
“This track really shows my growth as both an artist and an individual. I feel like I have finally found myself artistically in terms of the direction I want to go sonically, and what I want my music to represent. I know my fans have been eagerly anticipating new music,” he adds.
Orlando started teasing the release of the song and accompanying video on his socials last month, causing a high level of anticipation among his social following of over 25 million fans around the world. He also teased his upcoming EP with the hashtag #JOHNNY2020EP earlier this summer which immediately started trending on Twitter in the U.S., U.K., and Canada. Recently, Orlando hit a milestone by surpassing the 2 million monthly follower mark on Spotify.
