Today, Harry Hudson is back with “Overwhelmed,” the second single off his upcoming album, Hey, I’m Here for You, slated for November 20th. The single is supplemented with an accompanying music video, and follows the success of “Closing Doors,” a collaboration with Norwegian popstar Astrid S, which has accumulated over half a million streams since its late September release.
On “Overwhelmed,” a somber, plucked guitar arrangement comprises its main melody, while sparse, light percussion contributes subtle depth throughout. Hudson’s tonality exhibits strength of similar intensity, taking the implementation of the thematic standpoint into account as well.
According to Hudson, the song centers on the challenge involved in addressing flaws – particularly, constant self-doubt and habitual cutting off of relationships – and in the process, striving to let go of the ego entirely.
Ultimately, inspiration would especially strike Hudson enough to promptly compose, as well as include the song on Hey, I’m Here for You, even while previously considering the album complete.
“I finished working on the album in Kentucky and about two hours before my flight left, there was an idea I want to get out and this song shot out of me,“ Hudson states, adding, “We wrote and recorded it in like 30 minutes. It’s one of my favorite songs on the album,”
