While we’re used to seeing Ansel Elgort on the big screen (he’s the guy from films like ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ and ‘Divergent’ and ‘Baby Driver’) but the actor is also incredibly passionate about music. After releasing tracks like ‘Home Alone’ and ‘Thief’, the star is ready to ring in 2018 with a bang as he drops ‘Supernova’ – his most exciting single to date.
‘Supernova’ isn’t a love song. Although it is about a relationship, it’s about regret. Ansel sings about a girl who can’t seem to love him back – and how the relationship has taken a toll on the star. There’s a realness in the lyrics and Ansel gives a great emotional performance as he sings in a low register. The pop song is edgy and raw and it’s something that helps set the song apart from other pop songs out at the moment. Ansel is incredibly talented and the Golden Globe nominee has promised a lot more music in 2018.
“With ‘Supernova‘, I made something that I knew I’d want to hear. Finally for the first time with my music it really feels like it’s really coming from me,” Ansel says. “I was able to let my subconscious take over and never second-guess any artistic impulse while writing. I wrote this song behind the mic in the booth in the same session Scott Storch and Angel Lopez laid down the production. We were able to vibe off each other while Scott, Angel and I continued to tweak the production during the singing and writing process. Mostly this song was done in one session.” He adds that “I’m especially excited about my music project at this moment. Can’t wait to share more of the new stuff. Colin did an amazing job making a video that feels very current.” The ‘Supernova’ EP is expected to drop in the next few months and with such an impressive lead single, we have a feeling we’re going to be very surprised by the project.
