Jamie Mathias releases new single 'Light Up' 2

Jamie Mathias premieres lively and luminous new single ‘Light Up’

With his incredible new single ‘Light Up’, Jamie Mathias is burning bright like a supernova. There’s no getting over the singer-songwriter’s latest tune!

At its essence, ‘Light Up’ is about not being afraid to love someone with all of your heart. Things may not always work out but you should never be scared to embrace your feelings. Jamie co-wrote the track with Nick Bradley, Gustav Wood and Paul Whalley.

Speaking to us exclusively about the inspiration for his new single, Jamie Mathias said: “‘Light Up’ was the first song that was written on my writing camp in September. We were meant to be writing and recording in this lovely place in Santorini which was cancelled the week before due to COVID rules changing. Instead we stayed at this amazing house in East Sussex which had a bowling alley, arcade and a games room in it. As we walked into the main foyer, there was an old armchair which is where the inspiration for the lyric ‘sink into my body like an armchair when it’s old’ came from. This song is about giving love with someone your absolute all with no reservations and having no regrets if it doesn’t work out because you never held back.

‘Light Up’ is available here on all digital platforms. It serves as Jamie’s first single of 2021 and his last independent release. The talented musician, who is set to drop an EP later this year, recently signed a record deal with Vision Records, Absolute Label Services and Logan Media Entertainment.
