Tyler Shaw has shared the music video for his latest single “North Star” via Sony Music Canada. Shaw will be releasing his full-length album this summer.
On its meaning, Tyler Shaw explains, “‘North Star’ 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.”
“North Star” shines a light on Shaw’s uninhibited, hot-blooded delivery, which thrusts through the chorus, and is a real soulful, volume-to-eleven song that showcases his knack for good-time pop. The track was co-written by Shaw, 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).
“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,“ says Shaw. “Each scene had a different character and vibe and outfit based on the instrument I was playing.”
The new single and video come after the success of Shaw’s “When You’re Home” produced by Grammy-award nominated Jon Levine (Dua Lipa, Alessia Cara, Bebe Rexha, Drake), and co-written with Alex Beitzke (James Arthur), and Henry Brill (Jack Garrat).
