Austin Burke’s brand new debut EP, Changed Everything is out now, March 25th on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new music below and check out our full review.
Every now and then, artists come out with EPs that truly give fans a look into their lives and their artistry. Singer-songwriter, Austin Burke’s latest project, Changed Everything fits the bill. The five-song project is one that country fans are going to want to listen to again and again.
The EP kicks off with the record’s title track. On “Changed Everything,” Burke professes that he is a better guy now. Similar to the vibes of “Man Enough Now” by Chris Bandi, the track is a perfect introduction in to the theme of the EP. Not to mention, it is also super catchy!
“Baby, I changed for the better // Got my shit together // Like you always wanted me to // I’m a little less screwed up // A little more grew up // Since I messed it up with you // I can’t take back your last goodbye // And the good Lord knows I’ve tried // ‘Cause, baby, I’ve changed everything // But your mind”
“Slow Kissin’ in a Fast Car” is another song that is full of imagery. Written by Burke with Joe Fox and Phil Barton, the singer leans into the rhythmic influences on this track. Lyrically, the song is romantic and freeing.
Next up, “Let It Burn” is a song that screams heartbreak. Instead of the typical “missing you” lyrics, Burke taps into a more mature side of ending a relationship. He shares what it’s like to realize that you are just not the right match. Even more, through the song, fans can feel the heartbreak, sadness, and maturity that is wrapped up in the unique song.
“No, I’m not sure how // How to say it // But I’m not sure if // We can save this // I know it’s not easy // To watch you slip away // But at the end of the day // You’re the best thing that ever happened to me // But I’m a lit match to your gasoline // You know some things they just ain’t meant to be”
On the contrary, on “I Don’t Care,” Burke pretends to not care about a break-up. Like many of us, the singer-songwriter expresses the feelings we all try to hide away after a break-up. Instead, we all pretend that we are doing just fine. The song is relatable, catchy, and one of our favorites off the EP.
The record culminates with the ultimate love song, “Even On A Bad Day.” Probably inspired by Burke’s marriage, the song is one that makes you believe in love. Without shying away from the lows in a relationship, the singer manages to get us all to accept the lows in favor of the incredible highs.
Overall Changed Everything is an incredible EP for Burke. His songwriting is on full display, proving that he can really write just about anything. Fans will definitely enjoy this project.
