We have the privilege to premiere the new single from Michael Persall, a young singer-songwriter who has been making waves for his soul-infused pop music. While some of his earlier tracks, like “The Move”, were jitterbug tunes, Persall slows the pace considerably on “Doesn’t Make It Right”. This intimate and heartbreaking track oozes with the gentle coolness of the ’60s and ’70s, when slow dances were saved for the end of the night and where couples engaged in one last tender embrace on the dance floor. The track, however, isn’t a love song, but one written from the point of view of a person who has had her heart broken. As Michael explains:
“I wrote it from the perspective of a friend who’s forgiven someone too many times and had decided to confront the person after having enough of it I guess. Thought it would be interesting to write how that conversation would go down.”
Not many artists can make one feel such powerful emotions, yet Persall has done it with this track. With his troubadour and crooner style, he has the makings of being the next Michael Bublé.
“Doesn’t Make It Right” will be included on Persall’s forthcoming EP, 400, which drops on Friday, November 20th. The album is named in honor of Persall getting ready to perform his 400th show this year. That show will be on November 23rd at New York’s Rockwood Music Hall, and this will be Persall’s EP-release show. Maybe the Michael Bublé comparisons aren’t that outrageous.
And as a bonus treat, watch the video for the uptempo, soulful, dance-pop song “The Move”. The video is like a contemporary fairytale.
