Following his romantic ballad, “When You’re Home” Canadian artist, Tyler Shaw points us in a new direction with his pop-rock single, “North Star.”
The uptempo single co-written with Nate Ferrero (Johnny Orlando, Bülow, Virginia to Vegas, Shawn Hook), Mike Sonier (The Weeknd, Julia Michaels, Noah Cyrus), and Alex ‘Pilz’ Vujic (a long-time collaborator of Shaw’s), “is about navigating towards something or someone positive in your life who just makes you feel good. That’s what keeps me motivated and inspired,” Shaw explained.
“North Star” is paired with an equally lively visual. Viewers get to watch as Shaw jumps from rocking out on the drums to shredding guitar to showcasing his impressive vocals.
“People are familiar with seeing me with an acoustic or electric guitar, and the piano on tour but not a lot of people know that I play and love the drums. I’ve also picked up bass over the years so it was cool to play the role of my own band and be featured with each of these instruments,“ the multi-instrumentalist shared. “Each scene had a different character and vibe and outfit based on the instrument I was playing.”
These two notable singles are all leading up to Shaw’s third album due out Spring 2021.
