Christian French, one of 2020’s brightest rising stars—with over 250 million Spotify streams under his belt — is back with his emotional new single “paper thin,” where he finds himself at the breaking point of a tumultuous relationship. The melancholic track is the latest entry from his highly-anticipated good things take time EP (via RCA Records UK), which drops on August 21st. Listen HERE.
“paper thin” is about giving a relationship one last push to get through the turbulence and make it back to love again,” Christian says. Whether it’s stubbornness or sadness, the toxicity of the relationship has built up to the point of a forced decision. “In that moment, every memory that you’ve made together comes flashing back, and you really start to second-guess what life would be like without this person.”
The 23-year-old Indiana-native has already won support and accolades from TIME Magazine (who named “crowded room” one of the best songs of the week), Billboard Magazine (“mesmerizing”), while CLASH dubbed him a “reflective...American riser,” and Ones To Watch proclaimed, “his classic pop sound melded with his charming vocals is to die for.” “paper thin” follows the singer’s highly successful breakout track, “head first,” which has maintained staggering momentum since its 2019 release. Amassing more than 40 million worldwide streams, and averaging over 200k daily streams thanks to features on Spotify’s top playlists, the alt-pop gem continues to enchant fans and new listeners globally.
On August 21st, French will release the good things take time EP, on RCA Records UK, a collection which includes “i think too much,” plus singles “crowded room” and “time of our lives,” all songs that have surpassed millions of streams to date.
