The romantic track flips a traditional love song on its head. Instead of focusing on the fantasy that fairytales tell us, Crandall brings some realism to love and partnership. The singer-songwriter hones the message that your soulmate is something you create, rather than something you find. “Made” marks the first release off of Crandall’s upcoming 2022 project.

“Made // Yeah, we choose each other every day // Even when we bend we know we won’t break // We  just bounce back better // Cause soulmates aren’t found // they’re forged in the same fire // Work at it even when we get tired // Making ups out of downs, doing all that it takes // Cause soulmates aren’t found, they’re made”

Fans are in for a real treat, as Crandall continues to grow his artistry. “Made” is a solid single that country fans will find themselves vibing along to.

Spencer Crandall: Lost In The Wild – EP Review | Country Swag

Spencer Crandall’s newest project, Lost In The Wild EP is available now, May 28th, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.

We recently got to chat with rising singer-songwriter Spencer Crandall all about his journey in our Swag Spotlight feature. Crandall is a uniquely passionate artist in the industry. Today, he dropped his newest project, Lost In The Wild EP.

The collection was inspired by Crandall’s last album Wilderness. He decided to remix three of the songs from his last project in a new and fresh way. Additionally, the singer included two brand new songs suggesting that these songs are what was “lost in the wild.”

The record kicks off with arguably the most profound song on the project, “My Person” (Wedding Version). The original of this song catapulted Crandall’s notoriety, allowing him to create even more as an independent artist.

Firstly, “My Person has always been the song that people gravitate towards. It is something I don’t think really has been said, and people love to say it to other people that they love,” shares Crandall in our exclusive interview. The new version of the song is a piano-driven, slowed-down rendition of the hit. He gave the people what they wanted on this track.

Crandall also stripped down his song ‘Things I Can’t Say.” The track is a cheeky love song that we all will get butterflies listening to. With lyrics like “I love you is on the tip of my tongue” and “I want you to want me to be the one,” it’s hard not to smile along to the song. Julia Cole lends her voice to the second verse and chorus, adding an extra element to the already fun-loving song. 

Next up, the project transitions into the two brand new songs off the record. The first, “Apartments in LA”, is one of our personal favorites. Inspired by real-life events, the song conveys all the feelings one feels after a break-up in a new and innovative way. Crandall sings about it being too hard to live in Nashville after a break-up. During our interview, the singer even shared that he really did look on Zillow for apartments in LA, during this time in his life.

“So I’m looking at apartments in LA // Anything to get out of this place // Cause there are too many years, memories here that I just can’t erase”

Additionally, the other song that was ‘lost in the wild’ is a love song called “Nothing To Do With You.” This song proves that Crandall knows romance. The clever wordplay is enough to make every music lover swoon. The artist sings about wanting to spend a whole day doing nothing with his love. It reminds us all of the importance of slowing down and just existing, rather than participating in the everyday rat race.

“All I need is here and now // I want nothing to do with you // I want to waste Saturday in the living room”

Finally, the project ends with “Delete All” (The Nate Dodge Remix). Clearly influenced by his brother’s love of EDM music, the last song is unexpected but enticing. The new version has a vibe that is fresh, and hard not to love. The song transformed into a killer party song, proving that Crandall is a jack of all trades.

It is hard not to love the singer after listening to this project. Spencer Crandall’s Lost In The Wild EP is the real deal. The singer-songwriter is clearly in the right industry. We cannot wait to see his career blossom, as he garners more and more fans!

Who Is Spencer Crandall? The Story Behind His Journey to Country Music

Who is Spencer Crandall? The singer-songwriter joined us to chat about his journey to country music. Get to know the rising star here…

Spencer Crandall

The Beginning:

Throughout our interview with singer-songwriter, Spencer Crandall, we got a chance to learn all about his path to music. Growing up in Denver, Colorado,  Crandall identified more as a music fan than a musician himself. “I loved music growing up. I grew up in a huge music family, where my parents were fanatical country music fans,” he shared with us. As a child, he remembers being a sports kid and a class clown. However, the singer always loved and appreciated a wide variety of music.

“To and from every camping trip, sports practice, vacation, it was music all the time,” he begins. Later, adding, “We talked about music all the time.” Crandall credits his parents for his love of country music, specifically 90s country, but it was his brother who introduced him to EDM artists and rappers like Eminem. “I was getting all these kind of mixed messages [about music]. So I ‘Frakensteined’ them together to have this sense of what I thought was cool.” The artist also shared loving pop-punk bands, old-school Taylor Swift, and John Mayer growing up.

Crandall has kept that eclectic taste in music, even until now. “I’m more inspired by people making music than others.” The singer named incredible artists like JP Saxe, Sam Hunt, The Band Camino, Keith Urban, and Drake, as some of his current favorites. 

“I really love great songwriting. For me, it’s always been about the song. So, you can find an amazing song in any genre, because it’s whoever is being authentic and who is ever really telling their truth that’s what I’ve always been really inspired by.”

The Turning Point:

Still, despite loving a wide variety of music, Crandall had yet to shed his identity as a football player. He graduated high school with a football scholarship but ended up sidelined with multiple shoulder injuries. “I don’t know what to do. I don’t know who I am,” he remembered feeling. That is when the singer picked up the guitar he had learned how to play a year earlier,

“I never would have thought that this would turn into what I do for a living and what I love doing,” the singer shared while reminiscing about this shift in his life.

The moment he picked the guitar back up and started singing again, it was clear that he had a talent. Slowly, but surely the singer started putting clips up on YouTube and developing an organic fan base. Finally, in 2016, Crandall made the move to Nashville. He has been working as an independent singer-songwriter ever since.

Today:

Now, Crandall is fully engulfed in the country music industry. Last year, he released his record Wilderness, which was the culmination of four creative projects. The record featured a song called “My Person” that has quickly become one of the most romantic and real songs of our generation.

“My Person has always been the song that people gravitate towards. It is something I don’t think really has been said, and people love to say it to other people that they love,” shares Crandall. Fans have loved the song, so much that they inspired Crandall to release a wedding version of the song, which was recently released.

The new rendition of “My Person” will appear as one of the few other re-imagined songs on Crandall’s upcoming EP, Lost In the Wild, due out this Friday, May 28th. The record also includes two brand new songs. “So there was a couple of songs that didn’t quite fit the formula [of the last album] that I really loved,” shared the singer. “When we started to talk about the next project, I was like what if what is lost in the wild was these songs.” An obvious spark of genius, Crandall included both a break-up song, “Apartments in LA” and a love song, “Nothing To Do With You” on the upcoming EP.

Besides the EP, Crandall has so many new projects coming down the pipeline. A YouTube series about the singer’s life called ‘Road to the Stadium’ just launched. The singer also promises that he will be back out on the road playing shows as soon as possible, and we are sure that even more Spencer Crandall music will be coming sooner rather than later!
