Greyson Chance is back with a brand new single, ‘Holy Feeling’.
The singer-songwriter first rose to fame when a video of his performance of Lady Gaga‘s ‘Paparazzi’, at a grade school music festival, went viral on YouTube, gaining him over 68million views.
Now, with a couple of albums under his belt and a whole string of singles, the artist returns with his mellow yet stunningly powerful offering, in the form of ‘Holy Feeling’.
The song has a certain quality of George Ezra about it during the first verse, when Chance’s gravelly vocal kicks in. However, by the chorus, we are treated to an uplifting and strong voice that is begging to be sung along to with full force.
It has an emotive and optimistic vibe to the song that has me reaching to repeat it, time and again.
The video for the song is pretty simplistic yet stylisticly cool too. It was shot on 16mm film and features people displaying a love and passion for each of their specific creative crafts – from a ballerina and a carpenter to a photographer and a tattoo artist – none of whom are actors. Interestingly, it was shot in the same location as that of his single, ‘shut up’. Check it out below.

Greyson Chance first shot to the internet’s attention back in 2010, when his sixth-grade performance of Lady Gaga‘s ‘Paparazzi’ went viral.
Since then, he’s matured into an incredibly talented singer and equally fantastic songwriter.
This latest release, ‘Seasons’, is stunning. He stated the track essentially embodies an embracing of a new path in life; “Rather than holding onto my past, or a lifestyle that I understood, I eagerly jumped headfirst into a completely new and unknown journey.” He continued, “It was also within this moment that I no longer regretted the missteps of my past, but rather appreciated the strength and wisdom I had garnered from them.”
There has been no music video released, as of yet, but we’ll keep you updated on this.

We previously featured Greyson Chance‘s single, ‘Afterlife‘, which saw the singer take on a new musical direction and he’s since returned with ‘Hit & Run’, which we’re loving just as much!
The singer’s found a new maturity to his sound and his vocal abilities sound more powerful than ever! This song is brimming with passion and sincerity, married with his raspy, intense voice. It’s just incredible!
No official video has been released, but we’ll keep you updated on this.

Greyson Chance rose to fame in 2010, when he performed Lady Gaga‘s Paparazzi at a music festival, which later went viral on YouTube.
Since then, he has been releasing his own, original songs – most recently, Afterlife. This song shows an air of maturity and sees Greyson enter into a new realm of songwriting. I really like the pop hook to it but think it’s got an interesting sound to it – the blend of high and low harmonies is intricate and beautiful. It’s a well-crafted song, to say the least.
Fleur East is definitely going from strength-to-strength and this song is cementing her incredible pop talent.
‘More And More’ is clearly teeming with Whitney Houston vibes but I like it as it’s bringing back that old-school disco vibe but with a slightly modern edge to it. I think this song could well be as big as ‘Sax’ was and rightly so! Enjoy!
No video has materialised yet, but we’ll keep you posted on this. In the meantime, I’ve posted her live performance of the song, from the National Television Awards 2016.
