I had the opportunity to see Gavin DeGraw perform a private acoustic show early yesterday evening at Harlot in San Francisco. He performed a short set including, “Follow Through,” a medley of The Commodores’ “Easy” and Sam Cooke’s “Cupid,” “Chariot,” his new single, “Not Over You,” and “I Don’t Want To Be.”
Before he performed, he did a quick Q&A with one of the Alice DJs. Check it out below!
I was so stoked when I logged on this morning to see that AOL Music debuted the brand new single from Gavin DeGraw called, “Not Over You.” The song is the lead off single of DeGraw’s upcoming album, Sweeter, due out September 20 on RCA Records.
DeGraw told AOL Music, “‘Not Over You’ is about trying to get past someone emotionally. You create this scenario — you see them in your dreams and if you bumped into them, you would let them know that you’re doing fine and you’re past the breakup — but you’d be lying.”
Co-written by OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, the song does have that slight “Tedder Was Here” feeling to it, especially when it hits the chorus. However, DeGraw’s soulful and impassioned vocals combined with his honest songwriting makes for one of his best songs to date.
