Award winning singer/songwriter Michael Jones is back with his new single ‘Melts Away’, once again putting his genius lyrical skills to good use. His background in poetry is evident, while Jones has created an overwhelming response from listeners and critics alike, landing him awards and worldwide radio play for his tracks ‘We Are Soldiers’ and ‘What is this Life For?’. You can watch the stunning lyric video that accompanies the new track below.
“Melts Away is a song that challenges the overplayed notion that relationships are only ‘real’ if one gives up all of themselves to the other person. This is a song about holding onto what is sacred and personal at the deepest human level. It’s about the core of you that makes you ‘you’, being the deepest source of each person’s unique magic. It is advice of an unconventional sort, that holds to the foundation of a firm and private self as the temple from which the ability to love another emanates”
‘Melts Away’ gives us a first look into what is to come with Michael’s upcoming EP American Poet Part II. If you can’t wait until then, you can check out his work in his recently published book ‘The Enemy of Everything’.
Speaking of his passion for poetry, Michael explained:
“Real poetry is a revolution that can wear many faces. A revolution in language and ideas that can re-order and enlighten the senses. When the right poetic language meets the right musical sound there is magic. Nothing can find its way to the core of the human spirit like a great song, and in modern times, this magic is few and far between. American Poet is about finding that soul and depth that is too often lost in modern music, and seeking listeners who want to connect to songs on a deeper level”.
