Lauren Budnick and Brooke DeLeary of the faith-forward pop duo LOVECOLLIDE declare "I Don't Want It" with the lead single from their third full-length album, Tired Of Basic, which independently releases April 13 on ABS Entertainment, LLC with global distribution for the first time through The Fuel Music. Available now as a digital single at iTunes / Apple Music, Amazon.com, Spotify, Google Play and more retail and streaming outlets internationally, "I Don't Want It" also goes for radio ads beginning today.
"The song is about holding our dreams up to God," shares Brooke. "We are calling out to God, saying, 'I don't want this if it's without you.'" (See Brooke and Lauren share more about the new single on LOVECOLLIDE's Facebook page.)
Already in rotation at radio outlets like NGEN (Houston, TX), The Z (Spartanburg, SC) and KMOQ (Joplin, MO), "I Don't Want It" is also featured on multiple Spotify playlists with hundreds-of-thousands of collective followers, including Pop For Life, Party Anthem 2018, American Top 40 Charts, Reputation - Taylor Swift, Girl Power Run and many others.
"What we wanted to show in the video was that we all have very basic outer shells; we are all alike," says Brooke. "But on the inside the Holy Spirit lives, making us explode with unique weirdness and color that is undefinable and differs from human to human. The paint and glitter in the video is the outward representation of that explosion."
With the new single, video and album emerging after a season filled with doubt, loss, depression and uncertainty, LOVECOLLIDE's Tired Of Basic, produced by Riley Friesen (Family Force 5, Group 1 Crew) and Matt Dally (Superchick, Jamie Grace), is meant to be a revolution against boredom, mediocrity and status quo living.
"That's the theme, that's the mission--an extraordinary life," states Brooke. "Living in a way where you can never be labeled, like Jesus. Starting revival by being the light, being different, showing who Jesus is through us."
"We want our music to be an experience, not just something to listen to," adds Lauren. "We want the vibe, the style we give people and the love they receive to be something they remember, something that changes them."
