Los Angeles-based pop recording artist Lostboycrow released his latest single “Waste of Time” featuring singer-songwriter Bea Miller November 15 via Sony’s RED MUSIC.

The Dylan Bauld-produced (Halsey, Flor, Bea Miller) song, co-written by Bauld with both feature artists, serves as the second single release in support of Lostboycrow’s full-length debut album, Santa Fe, due in early 2019. The first song written for the album, “Waste of Time” (feat. Bea Miller) captures the artist’s excitement with heavenly synths, a roaring guitar solo, and an unshakable shared harmony with Bea Miller.

It began as an attempt to will my flu-ridden body out of bed one frostbitten night in Santa Fe and ended up being the first song written and recorded for the album,” explains Lostboycrow of the new track. “It is a reminder to love the very act of something for what it is and with whom we share it. To untangle our intentions and happiness from guessing at the future and enjoy something regardless of where or what it might bring us.” 

Rife with natural creative energy and endless high desert inspiration, Santa Fe, New Mexico served as the backdrop for Lostboycrow’s full-length debut album, Santa Fe, due in early 2019 via Sony’s RED MUSIC. It closes one chapter and opens another for the artist born Chris Blair. At the onset of his touring career in 2011, New Mexico welcomed him with open arms at cozy coffee houses across the state, and the singer later enchanted audiences and critics nationwide when he toured alongside VÉRITÉ, K. Flay, and Flor, garnering acclaim from news outlets like Billboard, NYLON, and Pigeons & Planes along the way. 

The years since he first hosted those intimate gigs in Albuquerque set the stage for such transformation in the high desert. Revered for his rapturous voice, off-kilter R&B panache, pure alternative perception, and airtight songwriting, Lostboycrow emerged as the ultimate pop enigma. By 2018, his cumulative streams impressively tallied over 150 million highlighted by the success of “Powers,” Stay A Little Longer,” and “The Lost Boy” (feat. Skizzy Mars), which received placements on notable Spotify playlists New Music Friday, Indie Pop, and Pop Chillout, to name a few. The singer now boasts nearly 2 million monthly listeners and 54,000 subscribers on Spotify alone.

About Lostboycrow:

Magic exists in certain places.

Under the shadow of national treasures a la the Puye Cliff Dwellings and Acoma Sky City, Santa Fe, NM remains steeped in a cross-section of American frontier lore. Not to mention, its vibrant arts scene would be home to the likes of Georgia O’Keeffe, among many others. Rife with natural creative energy and endless high desert inspiration, this magical little town served as the backdrop for Lostboycrow’s 2018 full-length debut, Santa Fe [RED Music]. It closes one chapter and opens another for the artist born Chris Blair. At the onset of his touring career in 2011, New Mexico welcomed him with open arms at cozy coffee houses. Even further back, the first song he performed live in high school would be “Santa Fe” from the musical Newsies.

This confluence of serendipity inspired him to rent an Airbnb alongside a bunch of friends in January 2018 and create the album…

“I was already in love with the people and energy of New Mexico, and Santa Fe is so beautiful,” he admits. “When it came time to do this record, I’d been longing to get back to my roots as a songwriter, building tunes on the acoustic guitar and being involved in every note, chord, line, lyric, and melody. I pivoted towards that. I got to go back to this place with a lot of new experiences. It became this meeting place between ‘then’ and ‘now’. That’s what the album is about. Santa Fe is a vehicle of exploring gratitude for where I am, who I am, and how I came to be Lostboycrow and ultimately do what I’m doing.”
