Los Angeles, CA – May 5, 2023 – Shining brighter than ever in 2023, Emmy Award winner and acclaimed multi-platinum singer/songwriter Andy Grammer will reveal his fifth full-length and first album in four years, Behind My Smile (S-Curve Records). He heralds the LP with the brand new single “Love Is The New Money.”
Andy says of the song, “The world needs more love. I need more love. I want to give more love. This song is a reminder to myself of who I want to be.”
The track’s synths and electronic drums enable Andy to lock into a fresh and fiery groove unlike anything else in his catalog. Andy delivers the verses with a swaggering cadence before elevating an instantly chantable and utterly infectious refrain with a positive message, “I’m rich as hell right now, because love is the new money.” The music video showcases Andy’s uplifting personality as he surprises a series of folks he interacts with on a regular basis, just to tell them how much he values who they are and what they do.
Andy initially teased this chapter with the spoken word song “I Need A New Money.” Beyond amassing 1 million-plus total streams, he performed it live on TODAY in honor of National Poetry Month. See the full performance here. Written solely by Andy, “I Need A New Money” grapples with the societal value placed on wealth and champions the idea that money doesn’t correlate to self-worth or happiness, life’s real currency is love.
